Ha ha ha! I love this one.

How about rubbermaids of like those little pom-poms. Cheap, and easy to clean up. And it won't attract rodents or bugs. And of course there are sensory balls. http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/redirect?link_code=ur2&camp=1789&tag=chrisficti-20&creative=9325&path=http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_ss_c_0_12?url=search-alias%3Dtoys-and-games&field-keywords=sensory+balls&sprefix=sensory+ball%2Caps% 2C319[/url] I got the kids a huge one at toys r us for really cheap on sale with a coupon. Dress up clothes. Large foam blocks to build with and climb on.

I am not sure what they are called or if you can still find them but they used to have a ball that is plastic, small, and kind of like spikey and you pull on it and exands into a big sphere.

Yoga balls, rice table, bean bags, beach balls, jump ropes,
foam blocks, and geometric shaped gym mats were a hit in the sensory room at the residential treatment program I used to work at.

Re: What are some good active indoor sensory toys

I was going to say Rody as well. He is great for my son. I highly recommend him. My son benefits from the sensory outlet with Rody but also the taking turns since we call hop around on Rody (the weight limit is 250 I believe).

Pom-poms in a dish washing tub with measuring cups to scoop, we are always looking for non-food items. We have a vibrating bee toy that ds loves. We got it here (this whole site has a lot of awesome sensory options & free shipping)

Age depending a Tangle is great (this would probably be for ages 3-4 and up, my big girls love these & they are great stress reducers for school aged children)

And I find a lot of great squeezy balls with all kinds of textures at the dollar store or Five Below.

And another great option for school aged children is the Desk Buddy
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/AS.../chrisficti-20

I have 2 children out of 4 with sensory disorders & they are both the opposite.
