Activity Centers - what are we missing?

Trying to finish buying all the last minute items before the boys arrive... and basically all we are missing are the "activity" centers.

We did get 2 bouncers, and a kickin' bouncer (may end up returning this one).  We also have 2 different playmats.  I do want 1 swing, and possibly the rock & play sleeper I posted below.

This is sufficient, right?

    Well, all babies are different in what they prefer, but this is what we had:

    2 swings, 1 bouncer (that wasn't used at all after about 6 weeks old), 1 playmat, 1 jumperoo, 2 bumbos that rarely got used, and I think that's about it.  Ours really preferred to play on the floor on blankets or the playmat, rather than be "in" something.  Except for the swings.  Those swings saved our sanity the first 4 months or so because they're the only place they would nap without having to be held.

    Thanks!  I'm open to getting 2 swings, but like you said, every child is different.  I rather invest in one now, and see how they like them.  I'm only going to open one bouncer up when they arrive and see their reaction. 

    If they like it, I'll open up the other, and / or buy the 2nd swing.

    I also heard good and bad things about the bumbos.  SIL has one for niece that I hope to borrow for a bit to see how it goes.  : )

    When the babies arrived we had: 1 swing, 1 bouncer, 2 activity mats and 1 bumbo. Like you, I wanted to see what they liked.

    We ended up buying a 2nd swing, bouncer, one exersaucer and one jumperoo. The bumbo was hardly used. I'm considering selling the exersaucer and buying a 2nd jumperoo since both girls like it better.
