They rely only on the cohesive properties of vinyl-to-a-non-porous surface. I tried using some of the 'dry vinyl' sheets from Cricut (the plastic decal printer company.) They have a couple of colors without adhesive that they call "window cling" but they aree only 4 mills thick and a bit flimsy, though so-far they are holding ok.

Yes, that's it. I would think those will work fine. I remember having something similar as a kid and what I remember is that the thickness was similar to that of DECtape "little blue things".
