Title: BALL LAUNCHING, HITTING, AND CATCHING TOY
Abstract:
An active play toy shaped substantially like a baseball bat has a proximal handle section grippable by a user and a distal launching section rotatably attached to the handle section and rotatably movable with respect to the handle section from a first angled striking configuration to a second substantially straight configuration by swinging the toy. The angle between the handle section and the launching section in the striking configuration is substantially between 90° and 120° and preferably about 105°. One or more detent mechanisms keep the toy in at least one of the first or second configurations until moved by the user. One such detent mechanism keeps the toy in the first angled striking configuration until the toy is swung like a bat by the user. A scalloped ball holding region may be formed in a distal portion of the launching section for holding and/or catching a ball.
