construction, the outer end of the horizontal leg 53 is
secured to the head of the doll in the area just under the
nose 41.
Various arrangements can be employed to
assemble the frame 51 to the head 15. One arrangement
includes the use of a plug 55 which extends from the
inner surface of the head and includes, at its rearward
end, an enlarged tip 57 which is forcibly inserted through
a somewhat smaller aperture in a short ñange 59 at the
end of the horizontal leg 53, thereby securing the hori
zontal leg to the inner wall of the head.
The other leg 61 of the frame (the generally vertical
leg, as seen in FIGURES 2 through 5) extends, in the
specifically disclosed construction, through the hollow
tion for sealing engagement with the concavely dished
chamber-defining portion 77 of the rearward member 29
so as to define the air-tight chamber 31. In this regard,
the circular piece 101 has a diameter generally corre
sponding to the diameter of the chamber-defining por
tion 77 of the rearward member 27, is smooth surfaced
to provide a good seal therewith, and has a central open
ing in alignment with the opening 35 in the forward mem
ber 29. The circular piece 101 can be fabricated from
30 synthetic or natural rubber or other materials having the
characteristics mentioned above.
Also supported by the post portion 97, adjacent its
upper end, is a tube 103 having an axial bore 105 therein
which constitutes the opening 35 and which communi
cates, at its rearward end, with the air-tight chamber 31.

are assembled to each other and which are generally
bowed so as to present concavely dished surfaces to each
spring 73 passes, the rearward member 27 includes a por
other. One of the disks is of generally larger diameter
tion 77 which cooperates with the forward member 29 60 than the other disk with the periphery of the larger disk
to form the air-tight chamber 31. In the specifically
disclosed construction, the chamber-defining portion 77 is
concavely dished with respect to the adjacent forward
member 29 in order to permit a rapid increase in the
volume in the air-tight chamber 31 when the adjacent
forward member is moved away.
The rearward member 27 is retained in proper aligned
relation to the frame 51, in conjunction with the coop
being rolled over the periphery of the smaller disk to
assemble the noisemaker. The `disks 111 and 113 each
yrespectively include restricted central apertures 115 and
117 with the aperture in one of the disks being smaller
than the aperture in the other disk. In assembling the
noisemaker 33 in the tube 103, the disk having the smaller
aperture is located adjacent the shoulder in closer relation
to the air-tight chamber 31 than the disk with the larger
