Toy Models: Would you like to come see some toys?

`Toy' here has a special sense: an object of everyday life which can be found or made in minutes, yet which, if played with imaginatively, reveals a behavior that sets mathematicians/physicists thinking for days.  This lecture/show will give table-top demos of several such toys and discuss the mathematics and physics that open up from them. Some of the toys will be known but revisited, some will be original, and all will be, hopefully, entertaining.
