my mom and sister and i got to singing a “sound of music” medley for arden’s enjoyment the other day, and that reminded me to google a yodeling goat toy that i had seen on TV a while back.  i was oh-so-tickled to find it is a real toy, and available for purchase here in the US (not just in austria).  this video makes me crack up laughing every time i watch it, mostly because i can imagine the geeky person on the other side of the camera setting up the shot and allowing the goat to follow thru with the entire performance, despite the cars loudly driving by in the background.  (i believe i would get along very well with said geeky person.)  and just in case you were wondering: YES, this toy is absolutely on arden’s christmas list!
