The said main body 10, the said main board 20, and the said lateral legs 30 as well as the said partitions 40 are double layered and the inner parts of the double layers are glued together.

The assembly and operation of the paper toilet table of fold type use for toy according to the present invention will be described as follows;

As shown in FIG. 1 and FIG. 2, when assembling the paper toilet table of fold type use for toy according to preferred embodiment of the present invention, insert the protruding portion 21 of the main board 20 into the main insertion slots 11 of the main panel 10. The main body 10 serves as the back wall of the toy toilet table. The main board 20 is where toy cosmetics can be placed upon.

Then insert the protruding portion 31 of the lateral legs 30 into the main insertion slots 11 on the main panel 10. The two lateral legs 30 support the main body 10 and the main board 20.

After that, insert the protruding portion 41 of the partition 40 into the main insertion holes 11 of the main panel and into the insertion slots 33 of the lateral legs 30. Once partitions are placed, drawers 50 that can accommodate things can be placed between the partitions 40.

At this point, a handle 60 that a person can grab to open and close the drawer 50 is inserted into the front wall 53 of the drawer. Fastener devices 70 that have one open-ended side are placed to hold and arrest main panel 10, main board 20, and the partitions 40. Reinforcing device 80 are placed on top and bottom part of the main body 10, and are placed on two sides of the main board 20, and also placed on the bottom part of the lateral legs 30 so that the toy toilet table can have added strength.

On the upper mid portion of the main panel 10, a mirror made of plastic material is placed so that children can look into the mirror and apply toy cosmetics.

The main panel 10, main board 20, and the two lateral legs 30, as well as the partitions 40 are double layered and the inside of the layers are glued together to increase the strength of the toy toilet table.

As shown in FIG. 3, the said drawer 50 has a rectangular bottom 51, and extending from the two sides of the bottom are two lateral walls 52 which are folded inwards at right angle; a front wall 53 extending from the fore part of the bottom 51 and folded inwards at right angle; and the back wall 54 extending from hind part of the bottom 51 and folded inwards at right angle to form the four walls of the drawer that can accommodate toy cosmetics or other toys of such. The drawer 50 is then placed between the partitions 40.

As shown in FIG. 4, the said handle 60 for the drawer 50 has arrowhead shaped tips on its ends that when inserted into the insertion holes 55, the sharp edges of the head inserts easily into the insertion holes 55. The rounded bottom part 61 of the arrowhead tips locks onto the insertion holes and prevents tips from slipping out so that bar 62 of the handle can be used to grab the handle and open and close the drawer.

As shown in FIG. 5, the said fastener devices 70 have tapered fastening portions that fit tightly into the protruding portions 21 of main board 20, into protruding portions 31 of lateral legs 30, and into the protruding portions 41 of the partitions 40. The insertion slots 72 next to the fastening portions 71 allow the fastening portions to easily fit into the said protruding portions, and the insertion holes 73 beneath the fastening portions allow the fastening portions to be easily rotated.

As shown in FIG. 6, the said reinforcing device 80 is placed into the top and bottom part of the main panel 10, into the sides of the main board 20, and into the bottom of the lateral legs 30. The reinforcing devices 80 are in the shape of letter M in which two side flaps extend from the main reinforcing body and in the middle, a protruding portion of a shorter length than the flaps juts out. The flaps 82 tightly hugs the edges of the main body, main board, and the lateral legs, and the protruding portion 83 of the main reinforcing body inserts into the space between the double layered edges of the main body, main board, and the lateral legs so that the reinforcing body forms a protective cover over the edges of the toy toilet table. The reinforcing devices 80 prevents the toy toilet table from sustaining external shocks while transporting the table, and protects the edges from damaging due to heavy load placed on the toy toilet table, and or prevents edges from water damage due to negligence.

Thus there is provided in accordance with the present invention a paper toilet table of fold type use for toy that accomplishes the objects of the invention set out above.

Many modifications of the preferred embodiments of the invention disclosed above will readily occur to those skilled in the art. The invention includes all such modifications as fall within the scope of the appended claims.

INDUSTRIAL APPLICABILITY

As described above, paper toilet table of fold type use for toy is assembled in accordance with preferred embodiment of the present invention. The paper toilet table of fold type use for toy is assembled into one singular body, and by engaging the partitions and the drawers to the main panel, the assembly and disassembly of the said paper toilet table of fold type use for toy is conveniently and easily performed. Since the toy toilet table is made of recyclable paper, it can be produced at low cost and can be recycled when disposed of.

The drawers are assembled without glue or bolts, so the disassembly and reassembly is easily performed. This allows the user to easily store toy cosmetics or toys of such into the drawers for storage.

Furthermore, as reinforcing devices are placed into the double-layered edges for protection so that the external shocks during the transportation cannot inflict damages to the edges, and or when heavy load is placed on top of the toy toilet table, the reinforcing devices protect the edges. Also, even when the water is spilled on the toy toilet table by mistake, the reinforcing devices prevent the edges from getting damages due to wetness.
