    The new childrens hospital is amazing and he has a tv with usb ports so movies should be easy.

    Do they charge for movies on the TV? Because I know they used to?
    Will he be able to move his arms etc? As maybe some games on a ps vita or DS or something might be awesome? Does he like reading? A Kindle with vouchers.... You could get a group together of friends to put money in to get something like that?
    If he has an ipad you could get iTunes voucher?
