Application September 30, 1936, Serial No. 103,428 2 Claims. (Cl. 46-149) This invention relates to walking toys and has for an object to provide a toy made in the sem blance of a human iigure in which the legs are caused to move in a manner o-f walking when the toy is pushed along a ñoor, side walk or the like. A further object is to provide a toy in which the legs are connected to the body for pivotal and upward and downward mo-vement, these move ments being imparted to the legs through the me dium of novel pins carried by the legs and mov ing around novel dogs pivoted on the body. With the above and other objects in view the invention consists of certain novel details of con struction and combinations of parts hereinafter fully described and claimed, it being understood that various modifications may be resorted to within the scope of the appended claims without departing from the spirit or sacriñcing any of the advantages of the invention. In the accompanying drawing forming part of this specification, Figure l is a side elevation of a toy constructed in accordance with the invention. Figure 2 is a side elevation of the toy taken on 25 the side opposite to that of Figure 1. Figure 3 is a view partly in elevation and partly in section taken on the line 3_3 of Figure 1 look ing in the direction of the arrowheads. Figure 4 is a cross sectional view taken on the 30 line 4-4 of Figure 1. Referring now to the drawing in which like i characters of reference designate similar parts in the various views, I0 designates the body of the toy, the same being made in the semblance of a A pair of legs II and I2 are mounted on opposite sides of the body through 35 human ñgure. the instrumentality of respective pins I3 and I4 passed through the legs, and equipped with heads I5 and I6 which enter keyhole slots I1 and I8 40 formed in the body. The legs are thus pivotally connected to the body for up and down movement. For imparting this movement to the legs arcu ate shaped dogs I9 and 2li are pivoted eccen trically on a pin 2l carried by the body. The 45 dogs are disposed in respective cam slots 22 which are of a general triangular shape, as best shown in Figure 2. Pins 23 and 24 are passed through the legs and into the cam slots. These pins bear upon the dogs and travel around the dogs, tilting 50 movement of the dogs during such travel pre. Venting retrograde movement of the pins when they arrive at the limits of their travel. The legs are pulled forward by the tension of respective springs 25 and 26 which are connected at one end to a common pin 21, shown best in 5 Figure 4, and have their opposite ends secured to respective legs by staples 28 and 29. In operation'assuming that the legs II and I2 are in the position shown in Figure l in which the leg I I is about to contact with the iioor or other lo support, while the leg I2 is about to leave the ñoor or support, as the toy is propelled forward by a handle 30 on the body I0, the leg I I will con tact with the floor, as best shown in Figure 2, while the leg I2 will be lifted by its. pin 24 riding 15 on the associated cam slot and immediately will be drawn forward by its controlling spring 26, as shown by the arrowhead in Figure 2. This oper ation is continued indefinitely with ñrst one leg and then the other leg being raised and swung 20 forwardly in the manner of walking. From the above description it is thought that the construction and operation of the invention will be fully understood without further explana tion. What is claimed is: 25 v l. A walking toy simulating a human being comprising a body, legs connected to the body for pivotal and upward and downward movements with relation to the body, pins carried by the legs, pivoted dogs carried by the body and around 0 which the pins move to impart movement to the legs, and tension springs connected to the body and to the legs, the pins and dogs controlling up and down movement of the legs and the tension of 35 said springs pulling the legs forward. 2. A walking toy comprising a body, keyhole slots in the body, pivots on. the legs engaged in the slots and connecting the legs to the body for pivotal and upward and downward movements with relation to thebody, pins carried by the legs, there being cam slots in the body, dogs piv otally supported between their ends in the slots, the pins engaging the walls of the slots and mov ing around said dogs to control up and down 45 movement of the legs, and springs connected to the legs and to the body and pulling the legs forward.
