1 Claim. (01. 1724-4)
An object of our invention is a toy which is
actuated by strokes with a hammer and which,
therefore, is adapted to develop physical strength
and skill of a child in a playful and amusing
Another object is a toy of this kind which shows
a plurality of spots, each of which may be selected
for the stroke, and which, therefore, is adapted
to develop discriminating and counting abilities.
Further objects are a toy of this kind which is
ready for further strokes immediately after each
stroke, and a toy which is provided with movable
members that move in one direction when hit by
the hammer and can be moved back in the op~
posite direction by a subsequent stroke.
through which the shaft 2 passes. In Figs. 1, 2,
and 3, the members 3, 4, 5 are circular disks, the
upper section of each circle being cut off. The
members 4 and 5 are shown with the cut oil’ edge
positioned horizontally. The member 3 is shown
in a tilted position. The lower rim of said disks
engages frictionally the lower or bottom wall of
the casing I. This, however, is not indispensable.
These members may engage the side walls fric
tionally or may not contact any of the walls. For
example, each of said members may be replaced by
