Abstract (en)

[origin: EP0743083A2] A movement mechanism for toys, particularly to move the legs of a doll or a puppet with an alternating angular movement similar to walking, comprises a body (12) revolving around a first axis (a) and comprising a worm wheel (18) having integral eccentric side pulleys, angularly offset from each other. A control rod (24, 26) is constrained to each pulley by having an end revolving on the periphery of the pulley, an extension of the rod sliding within a slot or fulcrum (30, 32). Rotation of the worm wheel sets the rods in motion with an angular movement offset angularly for one rod and the other. Each rod is advantageously made of metal wire, which at the end constrained to the pulley forms a loop or ring sliding freely around the pulley. <IMAGE>
