Trailer Hitch Stand Cradle Chair and Chair Combo

The proper title for this is Hammaka 40530-KP Trailer Hitch Stand Cradle Chair & Chair combo.    That is a mouthful to say.

It’s basically 2 swinging chairs that attach to your ute/trailer/RV and hang about.   I am sure they would recommend that you are not driving with it attached, and people hanging around in them.      Good spot to chill out.

Giant Swiss Army Knife

This has been around for a while, but may be new to some of you.  A Swiss Army Knife that has a tool for every situation…I think.
It has  87 Implements / 141 Functions.   Should do the job.

Tent for your dog

For those of you who think your 4-legged friend deserves to camp this Christmas, then pack this item too.

This dog is so unattractive, I wouldn’t be bringing it with me.

Walking Shelter

This looks complicated.
I really don’t know how this works, but basically, your shelter/tent is attached to your sneakers  (see that netting on the picture at the top).  Then you undo it from your shoes, and pull it up, and it becomes your tent.       Your body is the frame.   So I think, and don’t quote me on this, but you can’t lie down???

Is it a fork or a cheese grater?  It’s both!

Reduce cutlery when you camp.  This tool is a fork, a spoon and cheese grater all in one!

I understand the fork and spoon being together (a la spork), but cheese grating is not really up there in my top 10 must have pieces of kitchenware in the outdoors.

S’Mores Roasting Rack

We have written about how to make Australian S’Mores before – and if you are still a bit confused on S’Mores, well, you might want to read that story. 
Half the fun of marshmallows over the campfire, is holding them on a stick until they turn all gooey and black.     

But now, for those who can’t be bothered to indulge in that tradition, and want to cook S’Mores en masse, you have this grill.

Marshmallow MForcer

Keeping with the theme of marshmallows, we present the Marshmallow MForcer.

A pump powered weapon that fires up to 15 marshmallows at anyone you don’t like around the campsite.
Good news is that it only takes the small marshmallows, so a smaller mess!

Kids will love this way to use marshmallows.

Campfire Cologne

And for those of you who long for the smell of a campfire, but can’t actually go camping (or have a fire for that matter), your nose will appreciate this cologne!      Its not a spray, but really little sticks that you light with a match, and create the smell of a campfire.

I think I know what you are thinking right now after reading this concept!

Campfire Fishing Rod

If you liked the Sausage Roaster, you might like this.   Might.      But it does more than sausages!  It cooks your marshmallows too (yes, I realise that marshmallows feature strongly in this blog post!

 I had no idea when I started that there were so many ways to roast or use these fluffy lollies).
