4 Claims.
(01. 46-4135)
The object of this invention is to provide a
doll of novel, inexpensive and advantageous con
struction, having simulated eyes and provided
with means operable to cause a liquid to be ex
5 uded from within the doll body in the regions of
the inner corners of the eyes in simulation of the
natural act of crying or weeping.
The invention resides in the novel construction,
combination and arrangement of the parts of the
10 doll whereby the object is accomplished, as will
be hereinafter described and claimed.
In the accompanying drawing, illustrating the
invention,
Figure 1 is a front view of a doll showing one
form of embodiment of the invention.
Figure 2 is a vertical section of the doll, on
line 2-2 of Fig. 1.
Figure 3 is a front view, of one of the simulated
eyes of the doll and adjacent parts, enlarged.
Figure 4 is a section on line 4-4 of Fig. 3.
In the form of embodiment of the invention
herein illustrated, the doll comprises a hollow
body 2 having a partition wall 3 therein.
The entire body 2 and the partition 3 therein
are formed of yieldable, resilient rubber of such
character that if any part thereof be pressed out
of its normal contour or shape, as illustrated,
such part will automatically return to its normal
contour or shape by the resilient action of the
rubber after the deforming pressure has been
removed.
The hollow body is suitably formed in simula
tion of a child or baby having simulated eyes
5, 5; and the partition wall 3 is located below
the plane of the eyes and divides the interior of
the hollow body 2 into a lower chamber 6 and
an upper closed chamber ‘1.
The lower chamber 6 is in communication with
the outside air through a suitable whistle or
40 sound producing device 8 set in the wall of the
bottom of one foot of the doll and constructed
to permit air to pass slowly from within the
.r. Iv
chamber 6 when the lower portion of the body 2
is compressed, and to permit air to ?ow into the
chamber under the resilient action of body 2 in
resuming its normal condition after the lower
portion thereof has been compressed and re
leased. The device 8 may be of any desired
character and it may be constructed to produce
50 the sound or sounds of a child or baby crying as
air passes through the same either into or from
within the chamber 6, or both.
The upper chamber ‘I is constructed to receive
and contain a quantity of liquid, such as water,
5 indicated at I 0.
The rubber wall forming the body of the doll
is provided with slits 9, 9 in the regions of the
inner corners of the eyes 5, 5. The slits may be
formed by cutting or puncturing the solid rubber
wall with a thin, sharp blade. The slits extend
through the rubber wall, and the opposing walls
of each slit are normally in contact or in su?l-'
ciently close, relationship to prevent the water
within the chamber 1 from accidentally passing
through the slits during the ordinary handling 10
of the doll; and the slits provide normally closed
passages through which the water ill or other
liquid may pass from within or into the chamber
‘l, under conditions and for purposes presently
described.
"
When the lower portion of the ,doll is com-1
pressed by hand to reduce the size of the lower
chamber 6 therein, the air pressure within the
chamber 6 is thereby increased, causing such
pressure to act against the yieldable partition 20
or diaphragm 3 and raise it and thereby increase
the pressure within the upper chamber ‘l. The
increased pressure thus produced within' the
chamber 1 causes the slits 9, 9 to open slightly
and some of the water within the chamber to [G Li
be exuded through the slits in simulation of nat
ural tears ?owing from the eyes 5, 5, thereby pro
ducing the effect of a weeping or crying doll.
The effect of continuous weeping or crying may
be produced by successive operations of com- 0
pressing and releasing the lower portion of the
doll body.
,
To enhance the effect of weeping or crying pro- >_
duced by the flow of water from the eyes in sim
ulation of tears, the sound producing device 8 35
may be constructed to produce sounds in imita
tion of the sounds produced by a baby or child
when weeping or crying, when air is forced
through the device 8 by the compression of the
air within the chamber 6 when the lower por
tion of the doll body is compressed, and when
outside air returns to the chamber 6 through the
device 8 by the resilient walls of ‘the chamber
resuming their normal condition after the lower
portion of the doll body has been compressed and 45
released. The sound producing device 8 is con
structed so that it will not permit the air within
the chamber 6 to pass through the device 8 with
su?lcient freedom to interfere with the action of
the air within the chamber 6 on the partition or 50
diaphragm 3 for causing the water within the
chamber 1 from being exuded therefrom through
the slits 9, 9, as previously explained.
After the water ID has been discharged from
within the chamber 1, the chamber may be re 55

plenished with water by compressing the upper
portion 01' the head of the doll by hand to reduce
the size of the chamber 1, and by immersing the
having a yieldable rubber partition extending be
head in a suitable body of water and then releas
into a lower chamber and a closed upper cham
ing the head and thereby permitting the resilient
walls of the chamber to create suction within the
chamber 1 and draw water into the same through
the slits 9, 9, as such walls resume their normal
condition or contour.
