There's no question the book and movie "The Hunger Games" have captured the imagination of millions of fans, leaving them hungry for more.
There is something haunting about the story of Katniss Everdeen and the lives of the people around her so it's not surprising many people enjoy Hunger Games memorabilia.

If you are shopping for yourself or for someone who knows everything about Katniss, Peeta, Gale and District 12, there are plenty of options to choose from in a variety of price ranges.

Hunger Games memorabilia and collectables make appreciated gifts for Christmas and birthdays. They're also wonderful goodie bag gifts for hot new trend "Hunger Games" themed parties.

Hunger Games Jewelry

It's a case of life imitating art. When Katniss returns to the Capitol in "Catching Fire" she discovers that replicas of the pin she wore in the hunger games are all the rage.Mockingjay Pin

That's equally true here in the real world with sales of hunger games jewelry soaring.

There are plenty of options to choose from. Most are well priced, with many available for less than $20.

The central theme of Hunger Games jewelry is based on the pin worn by Katniss Everdeen. It is a symbol of a mockingjay with an arrow.

Choose from earrings, pendants, brooches and bracelets or mix and match individual pieces. My nieces have not taken their mockingjay necklaces off for even a second and they swear they  never, never will!

The Unofficial Hunger Games Cookbook

The Hunger Games Cookbook features more than 150 recipes inspired by food from the three book series. The recipes include Mrs. Everdeen's Breakfast of Mush and Rue's Roasted Parsnips.Unofficial Hunger Games Cookbook

The titles are catchy and some of the dishes are easy to make and taste great but many of the recipes have been panned by people who actually know how to cook well.

They say the proportions are completely out of whack.

Others are not comfortable with dishes made up of rabbits, wild dogs, racoon, squirrel and beaver.

However there are some interesting dishes that will supply exciting potluck suggestions for a Hunger Games dinner.

If nothing else, the book will be an interesting edition in your collection of recipe books.

Let the feast begin!



The Hunger Games Trilogy

 Hunger Games Trilogy

The Complete Collection

Chances are, any Hunger Games fan will want to return to the books time and time again.

All three books in the series are available separately, or you can order them ina beautifully boxed set. The movie is  now available on DVD and Blu-Ray.
The Hunger Games begins the adventures of young Katniss Everdeen. She is a simple girl, content with hunting and fishing to support her impoverished mother and younger sister. Her life changes dramatically when she volunteers to replace her sister who has been chosen to compete in the annual hunger games. Twenty-four young people from 12 districts must fight each other to the death. Only one can win, but Katniss and her fellow district 12 competitor defy the odds and both emerge alive. The Hunger Games is a remarkable story of courage and survival.
Catching Fire picks up the lives of Katniss and Peeta after they return home from the games. For Katniss everything has changed. Her best friend Gale is cool to her and Peeta is disappointed to find she does not share his feelings of love. Everything is on the line as Katniss must convince the nation she and Peeta are lovers or spark the flames of a national uprising, but it may be too little too late as the revolutionary movement takes on a life of it's own.
Mockingjay is the third and final book in the trilogy. A revolution is raging throughout the country and Katniss must risk her own safety to save her country. I will leave it at that and not be a spoiler but I can promise. once you begin these books you wont want to put them down and the ending is gripping.

The Katniss Barbie Doll

From the makers of Barbie comes the Katniss Everdeen Barbie doll. It was set for release in April, Katniss Barbie Doll2012 but collectors pre-bought the entire initial production order.

It is now scheduled for release on September 01, 2012 and you can place a pre-order to ensure you get the doll.

Manufacturer Mattell says the doll is geared for adult collectors. It is certainly a big departure from the original Barbie. The Katniss doll is strong, confident and hopefully free of layers of bright blue eyeshadow.

Katniss will join "Twilight Saga" characters Bella Swan and Edward Cullen along with Prince William and Kate in the Barbie Collection.

Collectable Hunger Games action figures are also available. Choose from Katniss or a set of three characters.
