What's that, Aunt Ocherdraco? Why, nephew, it's a Phee!

My not quite two year old nephew is fascinated by lights. He calls them phee, which is adorable. I discovered today that he is so fascinated with them that he enjoyed watching me, via webcam, blink on and off the plain white led on my phone. I have a feeling that if I were to amass a small arsenal of brightly colored, differently blinking—dare I say it?—color-changing and/or blink-speed-coordinating lights, I would be favorite auntie for at least fifteen minutes at a go. (Which is a long time for a toddler!) My requirements within.

I would like to have A) lots of lights, which B) can be turned on and off very easily, are C) cheap, D) handheld, E) require little to no assembly, and F) can provide lots of visual variety while being viewed on a video call like FaceTime or Google Hangouts. Ideally I'd spend about $25 (as his whims could suddenly change, and I'm a pretty cash-strapped student), but I'd be willing to spend up to $50 if that's what it costs to get more than a couple magical blinky lights.
What is the ideal blinkylights emporium for someone with my needs?
