I've had quite the couple of weeks trying to recover old files off an ancient computer, that had an equally ancient harddrive in it that just happened to have every piece of artwork I've ever done written on it.
First up (as a pleasant little break from paper dolls) I designed a series of Victorian Thaumatropes. It doesn't really SOUND like a happenin' toy, but in Victorian times some paper and thread were all the poor kids had to work with... and now in modern times they're ridiculously quaint. The premise is that there are two images on either side of a 'medallion' and when you twirl it - the two images become one image. (If anyone has seen the movie "Sleepy Hollow" by Tim Burton, there's one in there... one of the few pop culture references to them.)
