I have Rose Hairs, and Pink Toes and my 5 yr old has held them twice and will never again as he doesn't like the "ticklies" of them walking on him..
The Pink Toes are really fast though.. personally I'd go with the Rose Hairs, mine are more docile, and slower! and terestrial compared to arborial.
There are pics in my gallery of both species.
