Polyurethaning over different kinds of paint

I painted a toy chest for my daughter's 1st birthday and I used different kinds of paint for the scenes. I've used regular latex wall paint, acrylic art paint and then some all-purpose craft paint. There was no rhyme or reason to the paint I used, it was just what I had and the colors I needed. Now I am ready to put on a protective coating and my worst fear with this step is that I'll apply something that will wipe out portions of the scene. I've put too much time into it to ruin it at this point. Can anyone provide a proven coating that won't wipe out my decorative painting? Also, how many layers should I put on? Since my daughter is still so young, banging things is a favorite past time. The wood is kind of soft.

Thanks in advance.

i've used clear spray paint for my projects like that with good results. you can also buy polyurethane in a spray can - i'm not sure what the difference would be though..... ??
