I've been gifted a vivarium. Help an amphibian noob decide about a new pet.

I am unexpectedly the new owner of a 45x45x60cm Exo Terra vivarium. I am a competent aquarist, and have a little bit of experience keeping reptiles, but I think I'd like to set it up as a paludarium, with dart frogs and small fish. Are dart frogs a reasonable place to start? Am I setting myself up for a humid swampy hell in the corner of my room? What if the frogs escape? What should I read before committing to frogs? Is there something more sensible that my 2 year old (human child) might enjoy more?
