Transcript of Pull Toy
Pull toys have been enjoyed by children for centuries and have been made from a variety of materials ranging from wood to clay to cast iron. These pull toys have been used by toddlers who are steady-walkers, around 2 years or younger. They have a string attached to a mechanism that has wheels and an extra piece of the pull toy moves while its being pulled.
Types of Material
Tin plate is made from very thin sheets of steel that have been plated with tin.
This material is durable and very lightweight. But the edges did not meet the safety standard of today. Pull toys from tin plates first manufactured in the United States in the mid- to late 1800s.
Pull toys today
There are many manufacturers that still make pull toys. Fisher Price still makes classic pull toys and this week we built our own pull toy made out of VEX parts.
our second mechanism is: the cam and follower.

One of the first pull toys ever created must have been made in ancient Egypt and Greece. An example of a pull toy during those times were made out of clay and had wheels connected to the legs. Over the years, its been improving and made by tinplate, cast iron and wooden toys.
Cast iron pull toys were manufactured during the time of the civil war. They could be easily mass produced because they used a mold to produce them. Some toys were simple carts and rolling vehicles that were propelled by hand, while others came equipped with the traditional pull toy string.
The W.S. Reed Toy company began producing wooden pull toys in Leominster, Pennsylvania, in 1875. Its been the most popular material in which pull toys have been made out of.
1. What would you have changed if you had time to redesign one part of your pull toy?
If we had more time, we've would have added another gear,that could be attached to the cam and follower, into the VEX pull toy, and we could also had more time to design how we can make the Vex parts look like an actual animal.
2. Which solution to the pull toy problem presented by another group was intriguing to you and why?
What I saw intriguing of a groups pull toy is Danny and Williams built, it was symmetrical on both sides and the ways they have the gears set up makes me predict that the pull toy will go in a constant speed. I liked how Gregory’s and Seths toy was tall and they had a vision of what animal they wanted to make, our group started with only the design of the gears and not envisioning the animal we wanted to do, at the end, we choose to make our vex pull toy to look like a giraffe.
