Stuffed (plush) toys in Zürich

Kind of a weird question, but for a specific reason I'd like to buy a friend of mine a stuffed toy goat. The plush variant, not like, a real goat. The problem is, I honestly don't even know where to begin and look for this, being a recent addition to the city myself. It has been a while since I have bought toys. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated!

I got one free from Graubünden tourism. They should have a shop, probably in Chur

RhB have them online https://www.rhb.ch/en/service-souven...a70bcf13d11cfa

That's an alpine ibex (Steinbock), not a domestic goat (Ziege/Geiss)
They're from the same genus though...

Stuffed Goat 1

Stuffed Goat 2

I went there today and indeed, they had many! However... No goats. The lady in the store confirmed when I asked. I guess it's not a super popular animal, so it makes some sense. I was short on time, so I'll try the other store tomorrow (pastorini).

They definitely have Steinbocks (Bundnerland Ibexes) at Kloten airport. I was on the search for the same a couple of months ago.

There's a Drogerie in Rapperswil that has a very comprehensive selection of stuffed animals.
