A doll of a deal  The Tonner Doll Company is shipping The Hunger Games gift set of Katniss Everdeen, Peeta Mellark and Gale Hawthorne dolls for only $199 (ends this Friday April 5, 12pm EST).

This is a fantastic for all three high quality dolls. They’re trying to get them all sold in order to make room for their new Catching Fire dolls. To buy each doll individually usually costs $169.99! This is such a great deal for you or for the Hunger Games fan in your life!

Check out the set here.

The CW network has ordered a new reality show inspired by The Hunger Games, called The Hunt. The show will be debuting on July 31, 9 PM on the CW.

The show will place 12 teams of two into "The Arena" where they will live for one month while competing for limited resources. The official description actually says "the teams must hunt each other down to survive," which definitely has a very Hunger Games sound to it. The winning team will get $250,000.

According to hunger-games.net, when whispers of The Hunt first hit the fandom, there was  a lot of debate about how ethical a show like this could truly be. We might be all fans, but we don’t really want to be tributes! Considering this sounds like forced poverty for viewer entertainment, one can understand how this concept can (and does) make a lot of people uncomfortable.

What do you think of this now that it’s here? Will you watch The Hunt? Let me know in the comments below!

 

 

SEE YOU NEXT WEEK, TRIBUTES!
