Abstract:
A toy ( 10) and a method of operating the toy ( 10) are disclosed. The toy (10) includes a hollow elongate housing ( 12), a base (14), a driver ( 16) disposed within the toy ( 10), a lower pulley ( 18) driven by the driver ( 16) such as a hand crank or a motor ( 1 7), an upper pulley (20), a flexible cord (22), a plush figure (24) coupled to the flexible cord (22), and a sensing mechanism (26, 27). The driver ( 16) is configured to move the flexible cord (22) and the plush figure (24) in a first direction through at least one of the at least two apertures (30a-h), reverse in direction after receiving a signal from the sensing mechanism (26, 27) configured to sense that the plush figure (24) reached the predetermined position, and move the flexible cord (22) and the plush figure (24) in a second direction opposite the first direction (28) through at least one of the at least two apertures (30a-h).
