John Condell and his son Archelaus's patent's objective was "to produce activity of the child; and afford amusement, as a stimulus thereto, and at the same time produce a cheap and desirable article as a child's toy." Archelaus was only 16 when he patented this toy. (Patent Number 86,814)

The Condells ran a very successful business that manufactured artificial arms and legs in New York City. Hagley owns two models for patents awarded to John and this one by both John and Archelaus.
