Application October 9, 1937, Serial No. 168,117 (Cl. 40——67) 4 I‘ Claims. This invention relates to a novelty and more particularly to an advertising device adapted to attract the attention of the reader of a piece of advertising matter and to direct his gaze to a I particular portion thereof. An important object of this invention is the provision of improved means for causing a ?gure to vibrate. Another object of this invention is to provide a 10 novel attention-attracting device for advertising matter, such as advertising folders. Still another object of this invention is to pro vide novel devices for attachment to educational cards‘, books and, the like. 15 Other objects of this invention, together with certain details of construction and combinations of parts, will be apparent from the following de tailed description and pointed out in the appended claims. 20 ' vice as attached to a ?gure representing an arm and hand; Figure 3 is a view showing the spring device and attached ?gure as mounted and positioned in a closed folder; . Figure 4 is a view showing the position of the spring device and attached ?gure when folder is 30 open; - Figure 5 is a view showing the position of the ?gure (in dotted lines) when folder is closed; Figure 6 is a view showing position of ?gure when folder is open; and 35 Figure 7 is a side elevational view of a modi?ed form of spring device. 40 thereby attracting attention thereto. In Figures 5 and 6, the ?gure l5 representing an arm and hand l5 and the spring to which it is attached are forced to the right so that when 10 the folder is opened the tension on the spring is released whereupon the ?gure I5 oscillates in the plane of the open folder. As the folder I3 is held in the hand, the quiver or shaking of the hand, such as is caused by the pulse beat, causes 15 the ?gure IE to continue its oscillation since the ?gure is mounted on such a thin spring. This is of advantage for it continues to attract the eye to the portion of the folder to which the hand is pointing. In the accompanying drawing: Figure 1 is a detail view of a spring device; Figure 2 is a plan view showing the spring de 25 page B of the same forces the ?gure l5 to the right placing the spring I I under tension so that when the folder is again opened, as by one look ing for the contents on the inside thereof, the tension on the spring H is released causing the spring H and ?gure l5 to vibrate or oscillate 20 In Figure 7, there is shown a modi?cation of my invention. In this modi?cation the ?gure I5 is mounted on one end of a coiled hair-spring 16, the other end of which is a?ixed to a folder, etc. Many other desirable effects may be produced 25 in accordance with my invention. For example, the effect of a person or of a couple dancing may be obtained by mounting the proper ?gures on one or more spring devices. Such effects may be used on display posters as well as advertising 30. matter which is normally mailed. Furthermore, ?gures of animals may be mounted on pages of books, particularly those intended for children, in order to give to these animal ?gures, an Similar characters of reference indicate simi lar parts throughout the several views of the animated effect. My invention may also‘ be 35 placed in lids of packages of cereals and other packaged foods. When the lids are opened, the ?gure mounted thereon will be caused to oscillate. drawing. Referring to the drawing, the spring device, tailed description is given merely by way of illus It is to be understood that the foregoing de 40 generally indicated by reference numeral 9, com prises a hair-spring H of any suitable material tration and that many variations may be made therein without departing from the spirit of my but preferably of metal. I On one extremity of said invention. hair-spring is suitably attached a ?at member l2 k Having described my invention, what I claim as 45 which is adapted to be af?xed to a card, book or, new and desire to secure by Letters Patent of the as shown, to a folder l3. At or near the other extremity of the hair-spring is mounted a weight M. This weight is also preferably ?at and is adapted to have mounted thereon a ?gure l5 50 which, in the modification shown isv that of an arm and hand. In Figures 3 and 4, the spring device 9 to which the ?gure I5 is attached is shown mounted on 55 page A in the folder l3. In closing the folder United States is: 1. A folder comprising two pages, one of said pages having a representation of part of a ?gure thereon, a spring ?xed to one of said pages and 50 a member mounted on said spring, the construc tion and arrangement being such that when the folder is opened, the said member is caused to move to such position as to form a complete rep resentation of the ?gure. 55 2,128,133 2.

A folder comprising two pages, one of said pages having a representation of a part of a ?gure such that when the folder is opened, the said thereon, a spring ?xed at one end to one of said member is caused to move to such position as to pages, a weight mounted at the free end of said form a complete representation of the ?gure and to oscillate in said position. 10 3.
