WASHINGTON, DC (WUSA) --We're coming in on the home stretch of our Hot Holiday Toy segments. And, today, we're featuring a toy that gives back anda "pup-pet" that gives lots of laughs.

Ikea's Soft Toys For Education Campaign offers plush toys and books as a way of changing lives. We feature a plush Tiger today but there are other options too. Each toy or book that is purchased at Ikea helps provide $1.34 for education programs around the world that are sponsored by UNICEF and Save the Children.

The tiger, is $4.99 and the prices vary.

And, for a funny pet to adopt for the holidays, meet The Ugglys Your Gross Best Friend. Kids can put their hands in the "pup-pet" and gross out their friends with funny electronic noises.

The Ugglys dolls come with 30 pre-programmed sounds and an adoption certificate. They are best for kids ages 5 and up and sell for $24.99.
