Amazon

That's right, this lil' guy is under $10 ($6.69 on Amazon) and makes screaming goat noises at the push of a button. WHAT COULD BE BETTER?!

Just press the button on the stump he stands on to hear those bleats that can't be beat.

Urban Outfitters

Reviewers say it's loud enough to get some laughs (and elicit screams of sympathy from your cubicle neighbor) without being *too* loud and distracting to everyone around you.

Amazon

AND it comes with a 32-page, illustrated booklet filled with fun facts and trivia about your fave animal, because we love to learn, right?

People *love* keeping it on their desk to release a little stress — and make a few of their coworkers' heads turn in their direction.

Here are some promising Amazon reviews as proof:

"Purchased as gifts for co-workers. Was a huge hit! Great stress-relief for when you want to scream but can't because you have to be '"professional' and can't 'frighten others' or you'll get 'written-up' again." —g

"This little piece of screaming plastic has created an excellent outlet for resolving frustrations in our home. Every time a conflict or struggle arises we push the little goat, get a gratifying screech, chuckle and move on throughout our day. No regrets on purchasing this. When you get one get four or five because you're going to want to share with family and friends." —Amazon Customer

"We use this as a welcome gift for new attorneys in our office. Everyone has one on their desk. When you just get so frustrated, you let out a screaming goat cry, and everyone responds in kind—- in empathy and bonding. We love it!" —Amazon Customer

Aaaaand it makes for a much-stolen white elephant or yankee swap gift. Are you ready to be the most popular person at your water cooler? You better be.

Here's some more Amazon reviewer proof:

"Used this as a white elephant for a Christmas party. It was fought over and stolen many times. It's so funny and cute. Great deal for the price." —Jami

"It has to be tiny. I bought for white elephant gift just received it. Box is tiny! I put post it note next to it for comparison. I'm sure it was in details so it's my fault but be sure to read measurements. Box is sealed and in good condition so I hope it goes over well. **** UPDATE**** Super popular at Christmas party. Was stolen twice and two others want to order their own goat!!" —loralovesamazon

Tl;dr: be prepared to be the hit of your next holiday gift swap. Hard-to-shop-for friends or family? Wow, you're all set. Stocking stuffer for everyone you know? Absolutely.

"I got this to annoy my boyfriend with and I swear it was the best thing I have ever bought my whole 22 years of existence. If you are thinking about buying this, do yourself a favor and just add it to your cart." —Katelyn

"Not disappointed at all. Got it for a gag gift for an upcoming Christmas party... Keeping it for myself and getting something else. 🤣" —Lisa Burkey

We're talking about the ~G.O.A.T. of under-$10 gifts~.
