Depends on how you want it to look. If you want a nice clean logo I use water slide decals. They can be purchased online or at a local hobby shop. If you like the graffiti style then stencil would do. If you spray paint it on use a light coat to avoid drips and smudges.

^Agreed, inkjet waterslide paper works really nicely and if you are more a computer based artist it's perfect for putting your own designs onto toys.

You will find putting any kind of flat decal, stickers or masking tape on a curved surface is difficult!
Maybe if it is small (say less than an square inch).
Ended up drawing my design and then painting it.

If you are using waterslide decals on a curved or textured surface, you could try a decal setting solution such as Micro Sol or Solvaset.
