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

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
What is claimed is:
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
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
