Description:

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

1. Field of the Invention

The invention is a rotating doll eyeball. The magnetic component of the swing body of the eyeball's driving device and the magnetic component on the eyeball attract each other. When the swing body swings, the eyeball rotate in an irregular way, making doll eyeball more lifelike.

2. Description of the Prior Art

Previous eyeball driving devices allowed the making of eyeballs that rotated up and down and were fitted inside the doll and eyes for dolls that rotated downwards and closed when the doll was laid down and which rotated upwards and opened when the doll was stood up. The eyeball driving device made the dolls seem more lifelike. However, because the eyeball could only move up and down, it was substantially different to the real human eye which can move in any direction. Children want their toys to be as lifelike as possible, so this resulted in the problem of children becoming easily bored with the toys.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

The main objective of the invention is to provide rotating doll eyeballs that are more lifelike in movement and expression.

BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF DRAWINGS

This invention will be better understood by referring to the accompanying drawings, wherein:

FIG. 1 is an exploded view according to embodiment of the present invention;

FIG. 2 is a constitutional view according to embodiment of the present invention;

FIG. 3 is another constitutional view of the preferred rotating doll's eyeball in the present invention;

FIG. 4 is a partial perspective view of rotating doll eyeball in the present invention;

FIG. 5 is a partial perspective view of rotating doll eyeball in the present invention; and

FIG. 6 is a perspective view of use schematic according to embodiment of rotating doll eyeball in the present invention.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENT

A preferred embodiment of a rotating doll eyeball in the present invention, as shown in FIGS. 1 to 6, includes fixed support stand 1, two eyeball 2, an eyeball cover 3, an eyeball driving device 4, a cover 5 and a sound device 6.

The fixed support stand 1 has two U-shaped holding slots 10, around which are joining holes 11. The back of fixed support stand 1 has a positioning stand 12.

Eyeball 2 is placed in the holding slot 10 of fixed support stand 1. Eyeball 2 has pupil 20 on it, within the eyeball 2 is magnetic component 21 and on the bottom is a gravity body 22.

Eyeball cover 3 covers eyeball 2 and fixed support stand joining hole 11, and comprises of cover frame 30 and positioning frame 31. On cover frame 30 there is a thru hole 300 and hole 301. On positioning frame 31 there is an eyeball positioning hole 301 and protruding column 11.

Eyeball driving device 4 is fitted to the positioning stand 12 on the fixed support stand 1 and includes power control eccentric wheel 40 and eyeball drive mechanism 41. On the power control large and small eccentric wheels 40 there are eccentric wheel protruding columns 400 and 401 and drive switch 402. Drive switch 402 can be push operated or sound or light controlled. Eyeball drive mechanism 41 is cross shaped. On the central arm of the eyeball drive mechanism there is a rotating hole 410 and sliding slot 411. On the protruding columns 412, 413 on the adjutages on either side magnetic components 414, 415 are inlaid.

Sound device 6 is fitted at the front of the drive switch 402. When the drive switch 402 is switched on, sound device 6 is activated at the same time.

When assembling, eyeball 2 is first placed into the holding slot 1 of the fixed support stand, causing the magnetic component 21 of eyeball 2 to face downwards and the pupil to face upwards. Then, the cover frame 30 and positioning frame 31 of the eyeball cover are fitted and positioning frame 31's protruding column 311 is fastened with screw (N). Eyeball driving device 4 is positioned on the positioning stand 12 of fixed support stand 1. The rotating hole 410 and sliding slot 411 on the eyeball drive mechanism 41 of the eyeball driving device are attached to eccentric protruding columns 400 and 401 respectively. The magnetic components 414 and 415 of the eyeball drive mechanism and magnetic component 21 on eyeball 2 attract each other, then cover 5 is placed over eyeball driving device 4 and joined to fixed support stand 1. Finally, it is placed inside the eye part of the doll. Then, the drive switch 402 of the power control large and small eccentric wheels 40 and the sound device are placed in a suitable place in doll (A) and assembly is complete.

When used, activating the drive switch 402 on eccentric wheel 40 the eccentric protruding columns 400 and 401 of the large and small eccentric wheels 40 move the rotating holes 410 and sliding slot 411 of the eyeball driving mechanism 41. This moves the magnetic components 414, 415 of the adjutages on each side, the effect of the large and small eccentric wheels 40 causing irregular rotating movement of the eyeball. Magnetic components 414, 415 moves the magnetic component 21 on eyeball 2 and, as a result, pupil 20 in the center of eyeball 2 moves in different directions, accompanied by sounds from sound device 6. When the drive switch 402 is closed, eyeball 2 will be affected by gravity body 22 and the irregularly-moving eyeball will return to its normal position, making the rotations of eyeball 2 more terrifying and increasing product competitiveness.

The above explanation shows that this invention has the following advantages:

1. Eyeball 2 is attracted by the magnetism of the driving device 4, avoiding mechanism interference when operating.

2. The movement of eyeball 2 is controlled by the drive switch 402 on eyeball driving device 4, making use more convenient and suitable for children of various ages.

3. Eyeball 2 is linked to sound device 6 allowing more terrifying visual and sound effects to be created.

While the preferred embodiment of the invention has been described above, it will be recognized and understood that various modifications may be made therein and the appended claims are intended to cover all such modifications that may fall within the spirit and scope of the invention.
