WOODWORTH AFORESAID'.

ROCKINGwI-IORSE.

Specification of Letters Patent No. 23,003, dated February 15, 18,59.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that we, ABAD VVooDwonTrI, 3d, of Boston, in the county of Suiolk and State of Massachusetts, DANIEL "Woon WORTH, of l/Varren, in t-he county of TWorcester and State of Massachusetts, and M. T. HITCHCOCK, 0f Springfield, in the county of Hampden and State aforesaid, have invented a newArticle as a Substitute for a Rocking-Horse, and that the following description, taken in connection with the accompanying drawings, hereinafter referred to, forms a full and exact specification of the same, wherein we have set forth the nature and principles of our said improvements, by which our invention may be distinguished from all others of a similar class, together with such parts as we claim` and desire t0 have secured to us by Letters Patent.

The figures of the accompanying plate of drawings represent our improvements.

Figure l is a perspective view of our improved rocking-horse. `Fig. 2 is a central, longitudinal, vertical section of the same. Fig. 3 is a transverse, vertical section.

The rocking horses for the use of children as ordinarily constructed occasion many accidents as they in no manner assist in holding t-he child upon them and are not adapted to the use of both sexes. Our improvement in the manufacture of rockinghorses has been designed with a view to obviate these objections and consists in substituting in the place of the body of the horse, the head and neck being made as usual, a hollow box or cradle in which the child is placed and which rocks longitu dinally or in the direction of the length of the rocking-horse. This box or cradle is provided with a seat and back which can be removed at pleasure, so that the rockinghorse can be used as such by both sexes of children without the possibility of their being injured by falling as in the ordinary rocking-horse or, by removing the seat and back, as a cradle that rocks longitudinally and is therefore preferable to an ordinary cradle.

a a in the drawings represent the head and neck `of the horse made in the usual manner and attached to a curved hollow box or cradle Z) b, which is substituted for the. body of the horse. The box o o is provided with a seat c and back (Z, the seat resting in cleats e e and the back being in serted in suitable grooves so that they can Aboth be removed at pleasure and the rocking horse used for a cradle. The box has curved rockers f f on its sides, so as to move longitudinally.

It will be seen that by placing the child upon the seat in the rocking-horse there can be no possibility of it-s being injured by falling as in the ordinary rocking-horse and that my improvement combines also a rocking-horse with a cradle which rocks horizontally.

Having thus described our improvements we shall state our claim as follows:

IVhat we claim as our invention and desire to have secured to us by Letters Patent, as a new article of manufacture is- A rocking-horse consisting of the head and neck of a horse ma de as in the ordinary rocking-horse combined with a hollow box or cradle, so that the child can be placed therein and which rocks longitudinally, thereby uniting' the advantages of a rocking-horse and cradle and preventing the liability of accidents to thechild by falling asset fort-h.
