AbstractA dancing doll which alternately moves its hips left and right while alternately rotating 180° clockwise and counterclockwise to a melody. The doll includes an upper portion, a hip portion, a leg portion, and a base portion. The upper portion resembles the head to hip portion of a human; the hip portion resembles the hips of a human; and the leg portion resembles the legs through feet of a human. The base portion includes a covering case with a rotating disc at its bottom, a base plate that is pivotally connected to the rotating disc, a switch, a battery, a motor, an I.C. Unit, a speaker, a prime gear, a cam, an actuator, and gearing which will transmit the motion of the motor to the cam and to the actuator and will cause the alternate turning of the rotating disc. A pin pivotally connects the upper portion to the hip portion and a torso supporter, which extends from the right leg into a cavity in the upper portion. The feet are connected to the top of the covering case. An actuating rod passes through the covering case and left leg and is connected at one end to the actuator and at the other end to the hip portion. When the switch is turned on, the motor moves the actuator up and down which alternately moves the hips of the doll left and right and turns the cam that in turn alternately moves the doll in a clockwise or counterclockwise direction while a melody is heard.
