Toys that go beep in the day

Our 18 month old son loves things that beep and we'd love for him to play with things that are much less expensive than our $100 dollar Harmony Remote.

As mentioned above, he loves beeping things from the microwave to our Harmony universal remote. He likes seeing results ie- pushing buttons on the remote both beep AND change things on the TV. He also loves using the regular cable remote and seeing the guide come up and hitting the pause button on the DVR. Ideally, it would be a sturdy toy that would beep and light up. Other options would be iOS apps that disable the home button but otherwise make noise and do stuff.
Re iOS apps- I have enabled guided access, but this guy loves clicking the home button, so he usually hits the 3 click pattern without much difficulty. So if there are any apps that entirely disable the home button, please let us know!
Ps- I realize that an iphone is more expensive than a remote, but the iphone doesn't screw up the entertainment center or change the channel and aspect ratio of the TV. Plus, the iphone is sturdier than the remote.
