Funny Bike Bell?

My nephew wants a bike bell or horn, but something funny. Is there such a thing? All I've seen in stores are traditional bike bells, maybe some with LED's, but nothing to suit a 12 year old's sense of humor. Like a bell that isn't a bell, but makes a cow noise or something. Or sounds like a vintage car horn. Any ideas?

Most bike shops (that sell kids bikes) will have a good selection of novelty bells.

Might be a bit overkill though

When I had my shop our best seller was a sumo wrestler horn. You squeezed his buns to make it honk. One of our suppliers wouldn't carry them because "it was too politically incorrect and nobody would buy them". They were half right.

I had a really cute little green dragon "squeezie" on my police bike for years. Got a lot of attention....

Most shops around here have bells/horns that are plastic animals you squeeze. A few minutes on Google product search will yield many, many such doohickies. Enjoy!

These are everywhere in HI, and they're pretty darn cute. Right up a 12 year old's sense of humor, too.
