Patented July 31, 1956

CLAIMS:

1. A cartridge for a toy projector which is adapted to project streamers from the cartridge by a fluid stream therethrough comprising a coil of streamer material consisting of a light foil-like ribbon of small transverse dimension, one end of said coil having an opening for receiving a small diameter jet of fluid for passage centrally through the coil, the other end of said coil being open to allow high speed paying-out of the streamer material in streamer form from the inner surface of the coil, and means for preventing unwinding of the coil from its outer surface.

2. A toy for projecting streamers comprising a coil of streamer material consisting of a light foil-like ribbon of small transverse dimension, one end of said coil having an opening for receiving a small diameter jet of fluid for passage centrally through the coil, the other end of said coil being open to allow high-speed paying-out of the streamer material in streamer form from the inner surface of the coil, and means for preventing unwinding of the coil from its outer surface; and controllable means having a jet orifice for providing a small diameter jet of fluid at said one end of said coil and for directing  said jet of fluid in a path centrally through the coil, said jet orifice being positioned a predetermined distance downstream from said one end of said coil to facilitate projection of said streamer material.
