(Cl. 46—86)
The invention aims‘to provide a new and im
channeled cover I5 for holding the rolled para;
proved toy parachute which may be easily and in
expensively manufactured and marketed and
therefore sold at small cost, yet will afford a
chute in place against the cradle plate 8, the front

With the foregoing in view, the invention re
sides in the novel subject matter hereinafter de
scribed and claimed, description being accom
plished by reference to the accompanying draw
through lateral lugs I‘! which project from the
longitudinal edges of the cradle plate 8 in the
end of said cover being pivoted to said cradle
plate by means of a pivot pin I6 passing through
same direction as that taken by the lateral wall
II. The cover I5 is preferably of such length
that its rear end projects beyond and partially 10
receives the wall I l to prevent said wall II from
resisting the ?ight of the toy, said rear end of
said cover and said wall being provided with ?ex
ible tabs I8 and I9 respectively, to be held to
gether with one hand while the sling-shot or the 15

In the drawing above brie?y described, the
numeral 8 denotes an elongated ?at cradle plate
upon which to longitudinally rest a toy parachute
9 when the latter is in rolled form as seen in
Figs. 1 and 3, said cradle plate 8 having a weight
35 ed nose I0 at its front end and being provided
with'a laterally bent rear end providing a wall I I
to abut the rear end of the folded and rolled
parachute 9. The nose II] is preferably formed
by casting a quantity of lead or other suitable
40 metal upon the front extremity of the cradle
plate 8, and said nose is provided with a lateral
hook I2 for engagement with a sling-shot or the
like I3 used for propelling the toy into the air.
The usual lines I4 of the parachute 9 are secured
45 to the plate 8 and provision is made for holding
the rolled parachute 9 against said plate while
the toy is being impelled, and during the ?ight
into the air produced by the impelling means I3.
the means holding the parachute against the
50 plate 9 being then released however, freeing the
parachute and allowing it to open as the toy
descends. The flat form of the cradle plate 8
insures that the rolled parachute shall readily
leave said plate when the holding means is re
55 leased. I prefer to make use of a longitudinally
I 8 and I9 to the cover I5 and wall II respectively,
and said tabs may be of leather or other pre
ferred material. By holding these tabs together 20
with one hand while operating the sling-shot or
the like with the other, it is insured that the
rolled parachute 9 shall be held in proper place
prior to propelling the toy into the air, and as
vlong as it is in flight, the air pressure against 25
the cover I5 holds it closed.
As soon as the pro
pelling force is expended however, the toy re
verses its position and the cover I5 swings out
wardly, releasing the parachute 9 with the result
that this parachute opens as the toy descends, 30
producing a very realistic appearance.
‘
It is preferable to make use of a rubber band
22 to aid in opening the cover I5. This rubber
band is looped around the cradle plate 8 in front
of the lugs I‘! as shown at 23, extends over the 35
pivot pin I6 and extends rearwardly at the inner
side of the cover I5. A portion of the band ex
tends outwardly ‘through the tubular rivet 20 as
seen most clearly in Figs. 3 and 5 and is looped
at 24 around the secured end of the tab l8. The 40
band 22 is, of course, tensioned and its tension
serves to outwardly swing the cover I5 when the
air pressure against said cover is suf?ciently
diminished due to slowing down or stopping of
the toy at the end of its ascent. To insure 45
that proper air pressure shall be attained to
hold the cover I5 closed until the proper time,
said cover preferably increases in width toward
its rear end as shown, and this is also preferably
true of the cradle plate 8. The widened rear end 50
of this cradle plate and the adjacent portion of
the lateral wall I I may well be formed with open
ings 25 through which the lines I4 may be passed
and tied, to connect said lines with said cradle
plate.

By providing the novel construction shown and
described, a toy is provided which may be easily
to longitudinally place the rolled parachute, the
and inexpensively manufactured and marketed,
the rear end of the latter, said rear end of said
and may therefore be sold at small cost, yet it
will afford a great deal of pleasure and may be
repeatedly conditioned for re-use after any ?ight
and descent, simply by re-rolling the parachute 9,
laying it upon the cradle plate 8, and closing the
cover

The detailsdisclosed have proven to be of ad
vantage from numerous; standpointsi and- are
therefore preferably followed. However, atten
tion is again invited to the possibility of making
variations within the scope of the invention as
claimed.
I claim:
1. A toy to be propelled into the air, comprising
a parachute in rolled form, a ?at elongated cradle
upon which to longitudinally place the rolled
parachute, the parachute lines being secured to
said cradle plate, the rear end of said cradle plate
being provided with a lateral wall to abut the
rear end of said rolled parachute, a weight se
cured to the front end of said ?at cradle plate
and having means to engage a propelling device, a
longitudinally channeled cover having its open
side disposed toward said flat cradle plate to
hold said rolled parachuteagainst said ?at cradle
plate, the front end of said channeled cover plate
being transversely pivoted to the front portion of
said flat cradle plate, the rear end of said chan
neled cover plate being su?‘lciently wide to receive
the outer end of said lateral wall, and rearwardly
projecting tabs secured to said wall and said rear
end of said cover to be held by one hand while the
propelling device is being operated with the other
hand.
2. A toy to be propelled into the air, compris
ing a parachute in rolled form, a ?at elongated
‘I forwardly tapered sheet metal strip upon which
parachute lines being secured to said strip near
strip being bent laterally to provide a lateral
wall to abut the rear end of said rolled para
chute, a weight secured to the front end of said
?at strip and having means to engage a pro
pelling device, a second elongated sheet metal
strip bent into transversely channeled form to
provide a channeled cover having its open side 10
disposeditoward said flat strip for ‘holding said
rolled parachute against "said ?at strip, said
channeled cover being forwardly tapered and
‘having its front end transversely pivoted to the
' front portion of said ?at strip, the rear end of
said channeled cover being su?iciently wide to
receive the outer end of said lateral wall, and
rearwardly projecting ?exible tabs secured to
said wall and said rear end of said cover to be
held by‘ one hand while the propelling device is 20
being operated with the other hand,
3. A toy to be propelled-into the air, comprising
two elongated parachute-holding members, a
transverse pivot pin between ‘and connecting the
front portions of said members, tabs, projecting
25
rearwardly from the rear ends of said members,
one of said tabs being secured to one of said mem
bers by meansof a tubular rivet, and a tensioned
rubber band passed transversely across the‘ front
side of said pivot pin, one of the looped end por- .
tions of said rubber ‘band being passed outwardly
through said tubular rivet and looped around
the tab held by said rivet to anchor this looped
end of the band, the other looped end of said
band being extended laterally with respect to said
pivot pin and .looped around the front portion
of the other of said members, wherebyvsaid ten
tioned band will relatively open said members
when wind pressure against the latter is relieved.
