View page
US Patent:
7306515, Dec 11, 2007
Filed:
Oct 16, 2002
Appl. No.:
10/270621
Inventors:
Michael D. Crenshaw - Lansdale PA, US
Christopher F. Lauria - Cherry Hill NJ, US
Thomas P. Lauria - Wetumpka AL, US
Colin P. Merlo - Cherry Hill NJ, US
Thomas J. Gilliano - Audubon NJ, US
International Classification:
A63F 13/00
US Classification:
463 11, 463 10
Abstract:
A competitive interactive video game for a group of players includes a plurality of game elements, preferably playing cards, which comprise four different types of cards distributed to a group of players. The cards include cliche cards, attach cliche cards, pause cards, and rewind cards. The cliche cards each contain a written description and a point value while the attach cliche cards cancel the previous play of a cliche card by another player. The game further includes a means for providing a video presentation containing scenes which match the written descriptions on the cliche cards and which is viewed by the players. As the video presentation is viewed and the scenes matching the written descriptions on the cliche cards are recognized by the players, the players play their cards according to the rules of play and points are awarded to the players according to the point value on the cards. At the end of the video presentation, the winner is determined by the player who has accumulated the highest point total. Playing the pause card or rewind cards during the play can either temporarily stop the video presentation or cause it to be repeated according to the rules of play.

Inflatable Toy

US Patent:
6439950, Aug 27, 2002
Filed:
Jun 30, 2000
Appl. No.:
09/608141
Inventors:
Michael J. Goldman - Marlton NJ
Colin Merlo - Haddonfield NJ
Christopher F. Lauria - Cherry Hill NJ
Assignee:
Goldman Toy Group, Inc. - Cherry Hill NJ
International Classification:
A63H 306
US Classification:
446220, 446221, 446224
Abstract:
An inflatable toy comprises a simple and durable pump, comprising a bladder or other hand-operated source of air pressure, which inflates a balloon, typically shrouded in an expansible fabric, decorated with a character or the like, so that the character is distorted in an amusing manner when inflated. A first check valve allows air to pass from the bladder to the balloon when the bladder is squeezed, while a second check valve allows the bladder to refill itself while preventing air from being released from the balloon when hand pressure on the bladder is relaxed. A user-operated deflation valve allows pressure to be controllably released from the balloon. In one embodiment, the user-operated deflation valve is located such that the inflation bladder can be squeezed and the deflation valve operated without changing the position of the toy in ones hand, further increasing the users enjoyment of the toy.
