Works fine - Pay little attention to the 1 star review on Jul 15,2014 for version 5.40. He contributes nothing. This program works as advertised and is free.

Version 5.4.0
Review by JeffG64

Another solid app from T. Ogihara - I discovered that this is the second program that I’ve used by T. Ogihara. Prior to the existence of the App Store, I had download and used his IcoMaker app for Mac. I still have this app installed on my MacBook today 7 years and two MacBooks later. This is just an example of the staying power of T. Ogihara’s applications. ToyViewer is no different in its utility and staying power. It does exactly what it says it does and is a solid application. I was pleased to see that two niche programs that I have been happy with just happen to be made by the same person. Very nice! Thanks for providing solid and useful apps!

Version 5.4.0
Review by AcuteWatcher

Actually... - A GIF files viewer MUST manipulate animated GIF files to be legitimate. In addition, it MUST handle GIF files that contain music. Everyone knows that… RIGHT? Moreover, this app crashed as I tried to find info in its help file(s). BTW, this is the first app I’ve seen with NO VIEW PULLDOWN. I will delete this app from my machine and look for better.

Version 5.4.0
Review by majesty z

Does what I wanted it to do, nice features - I too find the review on Jul 15 for version 5.4.0 laughable. This is a great free program. I downloaded it to view PNM files, which OS X doesn't natively open. This is a much quicker whole-folder viewer than ImageMagick, Gimp, etc. It's like Preview but better, with its video feature to play the image files in the folder at an interval that I get to set. Just what I needed.
