My inventionvrelates to airplane toys, and‘. deals.‘ more particularly witlrthe innovations of bomb ing and jet? propulsion‘, and"one‘object is “to pro vide a toy airplane in which such-v effects are uniquely and“ amusin'glysimulated. I When the toy ‘is ‘to. be ‘used, it is taken‘? apart- at‘? the joint betweenthernose compartment‘ and the ‘ body to expose the incense stick l5. The latter is lighted and the toy re-assembled. The glow ping incense'stick will now‘ ?ll thebody It with smoke‘; and pressure applied to the bulb't?lwill be mainly effective to project ‘a densejet of smoke 22 from the rear tube l1 suggestive’ of gas ejected‘ A further object is-to design an airplane toy‘ with means for projecting al-smoke-jet' suggestive of gasesemitted from ajet propelledwairplane. Another object is to ‘design the toy with means from a jet-propelled airplane. ' for producing and dropping bubbles slmulati-ve v10 The pressure and‘release ofathe-bulb Ell-are‘ also. of spherical bombs. effective. to pass smokeinto the nose‘ comparts. A still further object is to provide a toy of the ment 5 l byway‘oflthe incense stick lilipwheth‘en above character which may be kept in action the same is porous or perforated asishown: This for considerable periods of time, whereby to action not only fills the nose compartment but furnish a fascinating pastime and a medium for also revives or extends the glowing portion 23 contests or games. An important object is to construct the novel toy along lines of simplicity and with a high of the incense stick, in case the same tendsto cool or become extinguished. The draught through the glowing portion will also dislodge clinging ash factor of safety. particles, so that these may fall into the bottom With the above objects in view and any others 20 of the body it and leave the incense stick burning which may suggest themselves from the descrip freely. tion to follow, a better understanding of the in A shallow bottle 26 is preferably provided as an vention may be had by reference ‘to the accom panying drawing, in which Fig. ,l is a longitudinal section of the toy; Fig. 2 is a cross-section on the line 2—~2 of Fig. 1; Fig, 3 is a fragmental View similar to Fig. 1 and showing a modi?cation; and Fig. 4 is a section of a bubble-supply container. ' In accordance with the foregoing, speci?c ref erence to the drawing indicates the body ‘of the toy at iii, the same being similar in form to an airplane body. In the preferred form of the in vention the front of the body It is open to receive a nose compartment H as a closure, a snugly ?tting lap or other joint l2 being employed to hold the parts together. ‘ accessory, and ?lled with a saponaceous solution 25. When the tube i8 is dipped into the bottle a small amount of the solution will adhere inside the tube; and when the toy is held aloft and the bulb pressed a bubble 26 will form below the tube and drop after assuming a desired size, simulating the dropping of a spherical bomb. Or, in case the frontal tube lil is dipped in the solution, a bubble 2'! will form as shown. In the modi?cation of Fig. 3 the bulb 2B is re movably ?tted by being made with a metallic screw type of nipple 2s. ‘The latter is of su?icient capacity to receive the incense stick 3i) direct, so that the airplane may be made in one piece.
