  • Patent number: 4283127
    Abstract: A pair of novelty eyeglasses includes a frame for supporting them on the wearer's head and a pair of transparent lenses. The frame includes a pair of support earpieces connected by hinges to the frames. Two light emitting diodes or LEDs are secured to the frame, one adjacent each lense and connected to a portable source of power, such as small batteries, mounted in one of the earpieces. A hinge switch, defined at one of the hinges connecting one of the earpieces to the frame, must be closed by moving the respective earpiece to the open position before the LEDs can be actuated. A manually actuatable switch is secured to the frame in series with the batteries and the light emitting diodes. The manually actuatable switch can be selectively closed by the user to energize the LEDs thereby creating a novel effect.

  • Patent number: 4261133
    Abstract: A novel toy simulating a crusher for compressing junk cars includes in combination, one or more small toy cars having a hollow body shell formed of readily deformable, thin, sheet material and a crushing mechanism including a guideway with a slide movable in the guideway to press a first wall against a toy car placed therein. A second wall is movable into and out of a stop position between sides of the guideway and faces the first wall. A manually operable mechanism is provided for moving the slide toward the second stop wall and shell of the toy car disposed in the guideway is compressed or crushed and thereafter the mechanism is operated to remove the crushed car from the guideway. A sound generator is activated by movement of the slide when crushing a car sheel to provide a realistic sound effect of a car being crushed.

  • Patent number: 4246719
    Abstract: A fluid actuated toy includes a housing with a fluid inlet and outlet and a fluid container pivotally mounted within the housing. A biased pop-up member is slidably mounted within the housing and includes an element for engaging an extension on the fluid container while the pop-up member is in a locked position. The toy further includes a biasing member urging the fluid container to a first position from which the container moves and releases the pop-up member upon accumulation of a predetermined amount of fluid. A platform is pivotally mounted on the housing to be engaged by the pop-up member and a figurine is removably mounted on the platform so as to be ejected upon the impact of the platform member by the pop-up member.

  • Patent number: 4245429
    Abstract: A doll having the appearance and physical characteristics of a new born baby includes a hollow body and head interconnected at the neck and a hollow sealed bladder is mounted in the head having a smaller volume and a flexible wall portion secured to an inside surface. The hollow bladder is filled with a plurality of discrete, particles such as sand grains or beans flowable and movable freely about within the bladder to change the shape and change the center of gravity of the doll's head when the body or head is moved. Similarly, another body bladder is mounted in the hollow body with a volume somewhat less than the volume of the body and this bladder is formed with a flexible wall and filled with similar discrete, flowable particles so that the center of gravity of the doll's body is changed as the body or head is moved. Thus, the doll of the present invention feels and handles like a real-life, young baby.

  • Patent number: 4171811
    Abstract: A toy gun or similar device usable with reflective target apparatus utilizes a pulsed light source and a self-contained light detector for detecting light reflected from the target apparatus back to the light detector. The gun includes an audible indicator responsive to the light detector for indicating each time a "hit" is made on the target apparatus, and also includes a resettable counter that provides an indication of the total number of such "hits" achieved in a given time period. The invention also provides a target having a pulsed light source to energize or actuate the light detector.

  • Patent number: 4132155
    Abstract: A kit or device which can be used by children to create artistic forms from sheets of paper. The kit includes a cutting portion which can be manually operated to cut strips from a sheet of paper and also a portion for creating corrugations and/or curls in paper, such as the cut strips. The cutting portion generally includes a plurality of cutting wheels mounted on separate horizontal parallel shafts for rotation therewith such that the side edges of the cutting wheels on the separate shafts are in cutting proximity with regard to each other. The cutting wheels are contained within an upstanding frame portion secured to a base. The spaced shafts are geared to each other so that manual rotation of one shaft is sufficient to rotate all cutting wheels. The frame portion has a side opening or slot at the cutting level so that a sheet of paper of any width can be accommodated during the cutting operation.

  • Patent number: 4039184
    Abstract: A game of manual skill and amusement having a game board including an elevated plate with one or more openings through which an electrically conductive playing piece, such as a probe, is inserted to retrieve one or more objects from a movably mounted table disposed therebelow without contacting the edge of the opening. The plate includes an upper nonconductive facing board and a conductive backing sheet which extends beyond the facing board at the opening edges to form inwardly projecting flanges of electrically conductive material for possible contact with the probe. Contact of the probe with the conductive edge of an opening completes an electrical circuit to move the lower table and energize a signal device. The lower table is in the form of an electric motor driven turntable which is rotated responsive to a player error by touching the probe with the edge of an opening so that the objects on the turntable are repositioned relative to the openings in the upper plate upon each error by a player.
