I don't think so...

No.  There is no such toy in Ubuntu.  There is a package named "desktop-
switcher", but it doesn't look like it supports gnome and kde, it says: "it 
currently supports switching between Ubuntu Netbook Remix mode and "Classic 
Ubuntu" (two panels, gnome-like) mode."

That sounds like merely a way to change the appearance of gnome itself.
