If you haven't seen The Hunger Games' big-screen adaptation yet, then the Beanie Babies Hunger Games actually isn't a half-bad substitute. See Rocket the Blue Jay take a stirring turn as Katniss Everbean, the District 12 tribute who teams up with Peeta (Quackers the Duck) to knock the stuffing out of the other tributes in the Arena.

Created by the Online Musical interactive theater group, this takes someone's Beanie Babies collection out of storage at last, leaving them battered and bruised under the watchful eye of the movie's shakycam. You can still tell the Capitol citizens from the district poor, however. They're the ones with the special protective jackets over their ear tags. Rocket and Quackers are common enough to allow soap and frosting on their delicate Beanie pelts.
