Nice find! These gizmos remind me of the wooden toys depicted in a book you recently brought to our attention: "Jouets en Bois" (Wooden Toys) by Serge Defradat (2012).

Don't know much about old toys, but some of these things look more like thinly disguised weapons to me. Maybe they were really for keeping siblings out of your room.
