Baby Jenkins loves all remotes, especially Daddy Jenkins' PS3 controller. Help me find a baby-friendly sixaxis analogue so's dad can play his games in peace?

This seems to be one of those things that's virtually impossible to google for. We initially allowed him to play with the good stuff, but then he yoinked one of the joysticks off and shoved it into his mouth. We also tried giving him an old PS2 controller, but he could tell right away that it did nothing, and would have none of it. Also, dangerous cord.
What I'm looking for is something sturdy, that closely resembles a PS3 controller, but fused with baby stuff, like blinking lights and beeping ... no annoying songs would be a plus. Or if anyone has any leads on dudes who would mod a controller into such a device, I would love to get in touch with them!
I'm also interested in your recommendations for baby versions of other, interesting grownup toys that don't like being drooled on. (We already have a Fisher Price Click and Learn remote, which is awesome, and I have a toy cell phone on order, so I've got those bases covered.) I've seen the wooden NES gamepad teether, but that's kinda the opposite of what I'm looking for.
