What's the application?
What voltage range power supply have you got available?

A classic 2 transistor bistable with steering diodes will probably do well
enough. 2 transistors and some diodes. Or you could use relays

But if you are happy to use a single IC, and operating voltage can be 3 to
15 volts with some CMOS logic families, then a single JK flipflop will do
exactly what you want. You'll need to debounce the switch with an RC filter
and you may want a startup reset circuit (one R one C) to clear the JK at
startup.

Connection:
J = high
K = high
Output from Q
Input = pulse to Clock.
Q will toggle.

This will run over a wide voltage range using a simple zener power supply.
Add a transistor driver for the motor. Swap from Q to Qbar if needs be to
get polarity correct. Beware of motor noise switching the circuit.

I have seen mechanical switches that perfom this function, keep searching!

The alternative with relays is a lot more clunky and complicated, especially
when considering debounce issues.

You are being silly.  You've got 12V, so a 7805 5V regulator and a couple of
caps will make a nice stable 5V power supply.  A PIC 10F200 can sense the
microswitch, perform the debouncing and toggle logic, and turn on the motor
accordingly.  The PIC can directly drive a IRFU3706 N channel FET low side
switch to control the motor.  The only other part you need is a reverse
diode accross the motor.

All this will be smaller, cheaper, more reliable, and take less power than
some relay logic.
