Abstract (en)

A structure is provided which is formed from at least one elongate frame member which supports sheet material, said frame member resiliently biased to an erected structure condition but movable by manipulation to a storage condition in which the same is coiled along with the sheet material and, when released, the same moves substantially automatically to the erected condition. The invention provides for at least one component which can be acted upon during the movement of the structure between flattened and erected conditions to cause a visual and/or audible effect to be created by the component. In one embodiment the effect is created by a fluid passing into or through the component. <IMAGE>
