Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to assist.
Unless you agreed to forego pursuing a civil claim for damages as part of resolving this with your employer, then you should have the right to sue.
You could sue for the cost of the toaster and also for any associated damages for pain and suffering, emotional distress, etc.
That said, you're not looking at a huge amount of money (or that'd be my guess) given it was an immature prank and didn't physically harm anyone.
