Final Coat for painted toy?

I am building a wooden pull toy, and am painting it with a few different colors of acrylic. The motion requires pieces to rub together at certain points, and I am worried that over the long term this will damage the paint job and cause smearing. Can anybody recommend a clear finish topcoat for extra protection? I'd prefer a spray, but a rub-on finish would be acceptable as well.

Thanks in advance for any thoughts you have to offer.

A CAB acrylic will do just fine. It will also prevent colors, especially white, from yellowing over time.
