(01. 272-31) ‘ 2 1 32 friotionally against the track 2?. Animal ?g ures 34 are carried by the posts 39 in the fashion of carousels. A pulley 35 is rigid with the lower end of the center post 24, and a belt 36 is trained This invention relates to toys or amusement devices, and aims to provide a novel, entertaining and compact and unitary miniature amusement park toy for children, the entire combination thereabout and about a pulley 3'! on the post 53. A second pulley it on the post I3 has a belt Ill being actuated by a portable electric motor. Another object of the invention is the provision of such a toy amusement park device which is simple in construction ‘and operation and at the same time inexpensive in cost of manufacture. The above and other objects will become ap trained thereabout which, through an idler 39. also passes about a pulley M3 on the shaft 42 of the Ferris wheel. The whole is driven by an elec— tric motor 45 whose pulley d5 is connected by ‘a belt M with the pulley 43 on the other endof parent in the following description, wherein char~ the shaft 42. ' . ' acters of reference refer to like-numbered parts It is obvious from the above description that in the accompanying drawing. It is to be noted energization of the electric motor 46 causes si that the drawing is intended for the purpose of illustration only, and it is neither intended nor 15 multaneous operation of the Ferris wheel, the race cars It, the airplanes l8, and the carousel desired to limit the invention necessarily to the 23. As the carousel turns, the ?gures 34 alter speci?c details of construction shown excepting nately move up and down, as is apparent, thus insofar as they may be deemed essential to the simulating a modern full-size carousel. The invention. Referring brie?y to vthe drawing, Fig. l is a 20 motor need not, of course, be applied as shown, as it may be applied at any point in the device plan View of the device. where its energy may be utilized to actuate the various elements of the combination. The device as set forth constitutes an ex~ Fig. 2 is an elevational view of one of the" elements of the device. , Referring in detail to the drawing, the numeral lil indicates a base having mounted thereon a 25 tremely entertaining toy for children, and as circular platform ll having a peripheral run~ previously mentioned, it can be manufactured way I2 thereon. A post I3 extends rotatably up ward through the center of the platform _I l, and has a plurality of radial rods [4 extending out ward therefrom, below the upper end of the post. Secured to the extremity of each rod M inexpensively. 7 spirit or scope of the invention. I claim: A miniature carousel comprising a base hav is a miniature car I5 Whose wheels ride on the runway l2. ' Obviously, modi?cations in form and struc ture may be made without departing from the ing a platform at the top thereof, said platform , tremities thereof miniature airplanes I8 are sus having a, cam-shaped endless track on the periph eral edge thereof, a post rotatably mounted axi ally in said base and platform, a horizontal'disc secured to the top of said post, a second hori pended. zontal disc secured to said post intermediate its A disc or the like It is ?xed at or near the upper extremity of the post [3, and shorter rods ll extend outward therefrom, and on the ex - 35 On an extension I?) of the platform or base height, said discs having vertically aligned spaced H), a miniature Ferris wheel 20 is mounted, the 40 openings therethrough, ‘vertical rods slidably cars thereof being shown at 2!. On another extension 22 of the base iii, a miniature carousel 23 is mounted, having a rotatable post 24 pro vided with a disc or the like 25 on its upper end and mounted in the base 26. mounted in said aligned openings, said rods hav ing wheels at their lower extremities riding on said track, collars on said rods above said wheels, coiled springs surrounding said rods between A cam-like track _ 45 said collars and said second disc, said rods hav 2'! is provided around the upper surface of the ing animal ?gures provided thereon between said base 26, and a second disc 28 is ?xed to the post discs, said ?gures being so positioned with re 24 intermediate its height. Spaced holes 29 are spect to said second disc as to'substantially con provided through the disc'25, and similar and tact the same when the respective rods of said aligned holes are provided through the disc 28. 50 ?gures are positioned in the troughs of said track Vertical posts 30 are slidably mounted in each thereby causing said ?gures during rotation of pair of aligned holes, and at their lower extremi said post to simulate jumping animals using said ties are wheels or casters 32 having collars 3i second disc as a floor, and means for rotating ?xed thereabove to the posts 30.
