What Indoor Play Furniture Would You Buy?

If you could get one indoor play item like a slide, bounce house, swing, or whatever, what would you get?

DD (2.5y) is bouncing off the walls (and furniture), I'm going to be getting more pregnant all winter, and DH is finally opening up to the idea of some sort of indoor play equipment. We live across from a playground, so this is strictly for entertainment on bad weather/preggo fatigue days.

DD likes to (in descending order): Jump, Climb, Flip, Slide, Hang, Swing

So far, we are considering the Ikea Virre slide because it's somewhat stylish, or some big soft play blocks in different shapes like this:

I HATE plastic playhouses and the like, and we've found inflatable toys like splash pads are very poorly made and fall apart quickly. We already have a play tent and a bunk bed with ladder.

Any one in particular? I was just looking at this, since it seems fairly safe:

that one does look awesome! I know some other mommas will be able to weigh in on types, etc.

I opted to buy a regular exercise type one. Which has worked well for our space, but if you have the space, one of those with net walls would work even better.

We just got a trampoline for the playroom and it is a big hit so far.

We also have an inflatable bounce house we will be moving inside once it gets really bad here. There is also swings and rings/gym bars that you can install in doors.

Rody. http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/AS.../chrisficti-20

The boys love him to death. He has withstood a beating and kept on ticking (my 9yr old rode him too)! They love him more than the trampoline, which is fun and used a lot to.

Forgot to add that we got the rody max for the big boys so they wouldn't hog the regular rody. I love sitting on it for a stool (I sit on it backwards) when they are not playing with him, although I have to give him up frequently . They think it's so funny, but it's fun exercise for adults to (great for bouncing squats) and rody races with your LO.

How much size difference is there? DD is 32.7lbs and around 37" - would you think the Max is better?
