WASHINGTON, DC (WUSA) -- Day two of our Hot Holiday Toy pics brings us two cuddly animals that will keep your preschoolers entertained from sun up to sundown.

The FurReal Friends "Cuddles" My Giggly Monkey moves and sounds just like a real monkey. "Cuddles" has sensors that help her respond to touch. We touched her head, mouth, shoulders, feet and placed her toy banana in her mouth to see what she would do.

"Cuddles" has more than 100 responses. But a quick warning for the kids: don't feed the banana real food. The diaper she wears is just for show!

This toy is best for children ages 4 and up and sells for $59.99.

When it's time to drift off to dream land, we've got a toy-pillow that glows.

The company behind the Pillow Pets, brings you "Glow Pets."Sparkling Unicorn, Flashy Penguin, Shimmering Seal and Brilliant Puppy all glow when you press their feet. This comforting pet has 20 LED lights inside, and OnTel (the company behind the pets) says it can stay bright for 1000's of hours.

Parents can use the 15 minute auto shut off button to control how long the lights shine at night. The "Glow Pets" retail for $29.99 and are best for children ages 3 and up.

And, for young budding car designers, they can create, customize and race their own cars. The Hot Wheels Car Maker can help them do just that. Now, this toy has a heating element, so it is not recommended for anyone under the age of 8. Parents should always be around to supervise. It's priced at $49.99.
