including a body IIlb which may be lconstructed
according to the body I0 and which has legs I4bI

thereof. A head 25h is pivotally mounted on a
nail or pivot member 39h which is secured in
the upper end of the body I 0b and loosely en

of the head 25h. The legs are pivotally mounted
on nails 45h which engage through holes 4Gb
formed in the legs, and the heads 4'Ib` engage on
the outer sides of legs. The nails 45h are driven
into the sides of the body Iûb.

will not only turn the head 215 on the pivot 26,
but will also forcibly swing the leg I5 forwardly
