You can make custom toast in android. Along these lines, you can show a few pictures like congrats or misfortune on the toast. It implies you can modify the toast now.

activity_main.xml

Drag the component that you want to display on the main activity.

File: activity_main.xml

<RelativeLayout xmlns:androclass="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"  
    xmlns:tools="http://schemas.android.com/tools"  
    android:layout_width="match_parent"  
    android:layout_height="match_parent"  
    tools:context=".MainActivity" >  

    <TextView  
        android:layout_width="wrap_content"  
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"  
        android:layout_centerHorizontal="true"  
        android:layout_centerVertical="true"  
        android:text="@string/hello_world" />  

RelativeLayout>  

customtoast.xml

Create another xml file inside the layout directory. Here we are having ImageView and TextView in this xml file.

File: customtoast.xml

xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>  
<LinearLayout xmlns:androclass="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"  
    android:id="@+id/custom_toast_layout"  
    android:layout_width="match_parent"  
    android:layout_height="match_parent"  
    android:orientation="vertical"  
    android:background="#F14E23"  
     >  

    <ImageView  
        android:id="@+id/custom_toast_image"  
        android:layout_width="wrap_content"  
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"  
        android:contentDescription="@string/hello_world"  
        android:src="@drawable/ic_launcher"/>  
<TextView  
        android:id="@+id/custom_toast_message" 
        android:layout_width="wrap_content"  
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"  
        android:contentDescription="@string/Toast"  
        android:text="@string/Toast" />  
LinearLayout>  

Activity class

Now write the code to display the custom toast.

File: MainActivity.java

package com.example.customtoast2;  
import android.os.Bundle;  
import android.app.Activity;  
import android.view.Gravity;  
import android.view.LayoutInflater;  
import android.view.Menu;  
import android.view.View;  
import android.view.ViewGroup;  
import android.widget.Toast;  

public class MainActivity extends Activity {  
     @Override  
        public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {  
            super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);  
            setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);    
        //Creating the LayoutInflater instance  
            LayoutInflater li = getLayoutInflater();  
        //Getting the View object as defined in the customtoast.xml file  
            View layout = li.inflate(R.layout.customtoast,  
              (ViewGroup) findViewById(R.id.custom_toast_layout));  
        //Creating the Toast object   
            Toast toast = new Toast(getApplicationContext());  
            toast.setDuration(Toast.LENGTH_SHORT);  
            toast.setGravity(Gravity.CENTER_VERTICAL, 0, 0);  
            toast.setView(layout);//setting the view of custom toast layout  
            toast.show();  
        }  
        @Override  
        public boolean onCreateOptionsMenu(Menu menu) {  
            getMenuInflater().inflate(R.menu.activity_main, menu);  
           return true;  

        }  
}
