CLAIM

1. The ornamental designs for an educational toy for teaching upper and lower case cursive alphabet, as shown and described.

Description:

FIG. 1 is a perspective view of an educational toy for teaching upper and lower case cursive alphabet showing the lower case alphabet letter embodiment of my new design with the removable cursor located in a storage location.

FIG. 2 is a front view thereof;

FIG. 3 is a rear view thereof;

FIG. 4 is a top edge view thereof;

FIG. 5 is a bottom edge view thereof;

FIG. 6 is a right side elevational view thereof;

FIG. 7 is a left side elevational view thereof; and

FIG. 8 is a perspective view of the educational toy for teaching upper and lower case cursive alphabet showing the lower case alphabet letter embodiment in an alternative position of use with the cursor and 3 beads. The beads are located in the circles of the letter “A” between the indicia identified as “1” and the curser.

FIG. 9 is a perspective view of an educational toy for teaching upper and lower case cursive alphabet showing the upper case alphabet letter embodiment of my new design with the removable cursor located in a storage location.

FIG. 10 is a front view thereof;

FIG. 11 is a rear view thereof;

FIG. 12 is a top edge view thereof;

FIG. 13 is a bottom edge view thereof;

FIG. 14 is a right side elevational view thereof;

FIG. 15 is a left side elevational view thereof; and,

FIG. 16 is a perspective view of educational toy for teaching upper and lower case cursive alphabet showing the upper case alphabet letter embodiment in an alternative position of use with the cursor and 4 beads. The beads are located in the circles of the letter “a” between the indicia identified as “1” and the curser.

The interior of the empty circles seen in FIGS. 1, 2, 8-10 and 16 forms no part of the claimed design. The beads shown in the circles located in the letter “a” in FIG. 8 and the letter “A” in FIG. 16 between the apex at the top of the letters “a/A” and proceeding counterclockwise toward the curser form part of the claimed design.
