Charlie, is pretty much right. If they are that good of a deal buy both, you can always unload one.
If you want, you can tell us the prices, and we can tell you if they are a good deal or not. If the boards are used or demos, then condition can be a factor.
The Oogle is not really a tradition skim board. It is a stretched skim; designed to compete with the cheaper broadcast. It definitely has more a skimmy feel than a surf.
The Mucus is a surf style board more or less, kind of heavy, slow and there is a tendency for nose diving (this generally has more to do with the rider than the board).
I am not going to try to sell you on different board; both are decent learner boards for you and your husband. Neither are ideal learners for your children. However, if I had choose one for your children, to learn to pop up and ride, it would be the Oogle.
