I fire bellied toad is one of the best I think, although I don't really have much experience with frogs or toads.

You could also try white tree frogs.

Or if you want an aquatic frog a African clawed frog or African dwarf frog are also possibilities.

You should avoid handling them as toxins from your skin could harm them and some toads/frogs are toxic themselves.

As with any pet do your research.For frogs and toads you'll definitely need a tank,heater and appropriate substrate.And b willing to feed live foods (i.e. crickets)

Here are some pages you might want to read:
Frogs and Toads as Pets
Frogs and Toads make good low-maintenance Pets
Fire bellied Toads

Do a Google search and you'll find a ton of page with information.
Frogs and Toads make great pets if your looking for more of a 'look but don't touch pet'

Hope this helps
