I recently bought a TV tuner (a bit bigger than a cig packet) which can connect straight to the tv. It cost $69 at Big W. Brand was AWA and also come with a remote and a small anntena. Its digital so you will need a reasonable anntenna, and of course you will need digital tv reception, which is starting to get bit more extensive.

The only problem is that there is a few more cables and another thing to power if there is no electricity. Runs on 12v. It can also gets a bit warm.

A more all in one would be best.

The best thing about the DVD player is that it can help bring the kids from that excited stated to calm with the 79th showing of Toy Story, so they get off to sleep better.

Thanks for the song, I think. :grin:

Sort of got use to having my birthday between Xmas and New Year. Not big on making a big deal about it, so doesn't worry me.

Had to have a cake with candles so my daughter could blow them out, :-bang

You will probably find your son will take to it fairly easily, though you might want to introduce him to some of the gear such as sleeping bags before you go.


If you find your son is not very comfortable with the idea of his sleeping arrangements whilst camping with a sleeping bag etc break him in at home Jodie.

You can start by having a slumber party in sleeping bags on the lounge room floor and then venture to the tent set up in the back yard in which you can both sleep.

I personally would stay away from DVD players and try to encourage your son to play board games, colour in, look for 'wild' animals and explore in general. I would also look at ball games in which other children can be invited to play also.

I would also be encouraging him to 'help' you set up camp and pack up as well. Give him his own little tasks to complete. Encourage him to make his own bed every morning when he gets up, wipe up the dishes for you (well some dishes).

Make the camping trip about 'our' experiences.

Cheers...
