This invention relates to children’s toys and more par
ticul'a'rly to a combined ‘convertible rolling and rocking
toy animal for a child.
A principal object of the present invention is to pro
vide a toy animal in the form of'a toy donkey adapted to
such as gray, with the cuffs 33 of a contrasting color such
as black. The ears 3S and mouth 23 of the donkey may
be of a contrasting color such as white. The stirrup 2t}
and reins 22 may be of a still different color such’ as
red.
Inside of the plush cover 3% of the body of the donkey,
a reinforcing and attaching frame 32, shown in detail in
FIG. 5, is positioned and embedded in the stuffing. The
frame 32 consists of a pair of spaced inverted iii-shaped,
metal rods 34, 34 round in ‘cross section and solid.

donkey 14 supported on the chassis. The donkey is
shown provided with a saddle 16 fastened to the body of
the donkey by a belt 18 ‘around the belly of the donkey‘.
A bridle 2G is positioned around the head of the ‘donkey
and reins 22 extend rearw'ardly from the mouth 23 of
the donkey. The tail 24 is decorated with an ornamen

suitable stu?ing material as indicated at 23 in FIG. 4,
the stu?ing provided a very strong and solid body ca
pable of supporting a small child seated ‘on the saddle.

Au axle 76 of the same material as the frame extends
across the frame 68 underneath each end 68 thereof and
is welded to the adjacent ends of the rods 64.‘ The axle
extends beyond the sides of the frame and a disc-shaped
