The others I find interesting. However, I think rotating the figures
(particularly the 45 degree rotation) makes for a confusing image. When the
XO person icon is upright, it's reasonably clear what it is. Rotated 45
degrees, it sort of looks like addition (plus) with something in a corner.
Rotating 90 degrees suggested multiplication to me. While one could easily
get used to it, the Planet Activity display didn't win me over. On a
similar note, do the people really need to tumble down the ski slope, or do
you think it's too boring to have them remain upright?
The Leapfrog display worked best for me...
