STUDY: Close examination of the toy leads you to believe that you could: PUSH, PULL, FLIP, TILT, POKE, and TURN the toy at appropriate times.

PUSH: You push a button on the underside of the Gnome toy causing the front to pop open, revealing a host of previously unseen pieces.
PULL: Pulling the arms of the Gnome toy forward, you hear a click as the torso loosens.
FLIP: You rotate the torso of the Gnome toy, causing an internal section to slide to the outside.
TILT: Bending the head of the Gnome toy backwards, you reveal an entirely different top piece, which glides into place.
POKE: You snap the original head of the Gnome toy into a convenient gap in the back, hiding it from view. When you finish your manipulations, you find that your Gnome toy has become a surly-looking rabid goat! Normal goats are known to eat just about anything. This one looks like it would eat just about anyONE.
TURN: You wind the back of the goat toy, and it begins to whirr. The goat bucks wildly turning around in sudden jerky movements. It spots the small device its Gnome form had been working on and scarfs it down. This may have been a bad idea since the goat begins belching as if it had indigestion -- must be some harsh stuff if a rabid goat can't stomach it! It coughs up a lung, literally, which wraps around the body and triggers a chain of mechanical shifts that gradually turn the goat back into the industrious little Gnomish woman.

Notes

Can turn into wind-up goat toy.
