I NEED TO KNOW HOW AND WHAT KIND OF SIMPLE TOY I COULD MAKE FOR A PROJECT ON THIS SUBJECT.

The Gauss Rifle is one example.
The potential energy stored in the balls when the
device is cocked is released, and turns into the
kinetic energy of the moving ball.
When you re-cock the toy, you can see where the
energy is coming from -- it is quite difficult
to remove each ball from its magnet. The energy
you use to pry the ball from the magnet is stored
as potential energy when you cock the gun.
The Gauss Rifle is explained here.

Another one is the clasic newton balls.
