Tips for starting a new tank and making it kid-friendly?

It's been a long time since I've had a fish tank - talking 20 yrs or more. lol!! Any tips that I should follow for easily setting up a fish tank for my kids?

Things we want:

**African frogs - the clerk recommended 2 per 10 gallon tank
**small fish that aren't hard to take care of - easy, there were tons of them
**a few snails - easy, too, I think

To make things easy, should I go for one of the "all-in-one" deals that have the tank, filter..etc or would it be fine to buy a used tank and then the extras to go with it? Which could be the better deal?

We have some sea shells that came from the beach years ago. My dd wants to put them in the tank. Can we safely use them? Should I boil them in hot water first to make sure they are clean?

What else should I think about?

Thanks for your help!

Tami
