  • Patent number: 10179673
    Abstract: A toy includes a number of play objects that constitute surprises or prizes that are serially revealed to the child as the child removes various layers of wrappings from the toy. Some play objects are located between layers of wrapping. Other play objects are tucked into outer recesses of a spherical shell which is covered by the wrappings, such that removing one of the layers of wrappings reveals one compartment containing one play object at a time. Once all of the wrappings have been removed, the shell comes apart, thus revealing yet another play object. The play object within the shell can be a toy figure such as a doll, with other play objects that were previously revealed being clothing, accessories for the doll, or cards that contain information or other indicia that has a play relationship to the toy figure. The objects that are serially revealed bear a play relationship with one another.

  • Publication number: 20180264370
    Abstract: A toy figure such as a doll has at least a portion thereof such as a head covered in a conformal coating that is easily peeled away. The coating has separation lines such as die cuts in it that allow different portions of the coating to be independently peeled away. The different portions of the coating have tabs, or string embedded therein, or other means for grasping those portions respectively. The child peels away one portion of the coating to reveal a first part of the figure, then another portion of the coating to reveal more of the figure, and finally the character is revealed once all of the coating portions have been peeled away. In this way the figure is slowly revealed to the child in an interactive process that involves the child. The slow reveal helps to arouse the child's sense of excitement and anticipation as the child slowly and serially uncovers and thus reveals different parts of the doll.

Other play objects are tucked into outer recesses of a spherical shell which is covered by the wrappings, such that removing one of the layers of wrappings reveals one compartment containing one play object at a time. Once all of the wrappings have been removed, the shell comes apart into halves, thus revealing yet another play object.
