Already did the Rubik's thing. Looking for suggestions/examples of something similarly simple and cheap, based on iconic toys/games/video games/trinkets/devices. Net searches mostly come up with '80s fashion/people, so... I tried.
Ideas I've kicked around (and some might be pre-'80s, but are stuff well-remembered by Gen Xers at least): Magic 8 Ball, Magic Slate, Etch-a-Sketch, Simon, See-n-Say. Maybe a giant clump of Lego pieces?
I may also go with a variation of Joel's "Jiffy Pop"
costume from MST3K (the missing child milk carton is much too dark).
Any further ideas for authentic "operatibility" would be great (like a light-up Simon). As would links for web galleries on this sort of theme. Thanks.
