I really enjoyed the first movie in the series and I can't wait to see more. I loved the Lord of the Rings Trilogy and it looks like this series will be just as popular.

The Hobbit Board Game
This game is not to confused with an earlier version that came out several years ago. This is a new game that is fun for the whole family. What I enjoy about it is that it's easy enough to play and a full game usually takes less than an hour to finish.
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey Board Game
This is the first of three Hobbit board games that will coincide with each of the films in the series. In this game, teamwork is required with little resources as players make their way through Middle Earth while fighting obstacles all the way.
It's hard to imagine another actor playing the role of Bilbo Baggins in the Hobbit trilogy. I think Freeman did an excellent job of bringing this character to life and showing the warmth of the character.
However, it was rumored that a couple of other well known Bristish actors were considered for the part. One of them was Daniel Radcliff, who will forever be known as Harry Potter. The other was David Tennant, whom fans know as Doctor Who.

The Hobbit Puzzle Ball
I love how unique this jigsaw puzzle is. What's nice is how you can display the puzzle once it's finished as it makes a great Hobbit decoration.
These puzzles are on eBay.
The Hobbit series was filmed in different locations in New Zealand, including Nelson, Queenstown and Wanaka. As far as the on set scenes, they were filmed at Stone Street Studios which had also been home to other blockbuster movies including King Kong.
The picture you see here is the original Hobbit Hole in New Zealand which was used in the Lord of the Rings trilogy. Wouldn't it be amazing to visit it?

Lego Hobbit Set
This is on both of my son's wish list. Having had numerous Lego sets, I can tell you that Lego sets are fun and durable and what's nice is that kids can take them apart and put them back together again. Of particular interest with his set is that it comes with four minifigures.

Have you read any of The Hobbit Books?
The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings Books
If you're thinking of reading The Hobbit or introducing it to someone, I would like to suggest getting the boxed set that has both The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. Tolkien is a fantastic writer and most likely, once The Hobbit is finished, the reader will want to go immediately into the LOTR series. Not to mention, Amazon currently has a great price on this set.
Yes Virginia, there is a Hobbit themed Monopoly game. While the four corners remain the same, the rest of the board has been transformed to reflect The Hobbit. If you would like to see the board, click on the picture and it will take you to Amazon where you can view it. This is going on my wish list.
The Bridge Direct Hobbit Hero Pack
I love the detail in these. Think of all the imaginative adventures kids will have with these. You can also display them when not playing with them.
Christopher Lee from The Hobbit
Although The Hobbit trilogy was filmed in New Zealand, there was an exception. Christopher Lee did not feel comfortable traveling to New Zealand, so instead he filmed his part at Pinewood Studios in the United Kingdom.
The studio has given movie goers such hits as Fast & Furious 6, Skyfall and Les Misrables. Currently, The Muppets...Again! is being filmed there.

This is sure to become a collectible. Kids love action figures, especially boys. This is just one of many new figures released for the movie.
Kids can imagine themselves to be the leader of the dwarves with this Thorin figure. Comes with everything shown.
This is my favorite of the figures. I love wizards and especially this one in particular.
Now, if you really want to make a kids' day, check out this five piece set. Imagine the hours kids would spend playing with the whole set. Now, if you're a collector, think how nicely these would display.
The Hobbit Trailer
Check it out!
This is for the first film in the trilogy. The other two movies have already completed filming.
Lego Lord of the Rings
Although technically, this isn't The Hobbit, it is from the series and has many crossover characters. My son and I are currently playing this and although he plays much better than I do, I'm still very much enjoying the game play. This is a new game which came out shortly before the movie.
The Hobbit PC Game
This is quite an enjoyable game for kids. It's an RPG which isn't too difficult, yet it's interesting enough to play. Even as an adult, I've had fun with it.
The Hobbit Video Game
This is the same as the game above, except that it's on Xbox.
Originally The Hobbit was only going to have two films in the series until Peter Jackson decided to make it into a trilogy.
Hobbit Card Game
It's good versus evil with this visually pleasing card game. What makes the game interesting is that each character has it's own special ability. You can heal your allies or cause damage to your enemies.
Hobbit Bobble Head Wobbler
Don't these look fun? They're actually quite funny to look at when they're bobbing back and forth. They can be played with or set on a desk or shelf as a decoration.
