Hunger Games Katniss Everdeen Barbie Available for Pre-OrderWendyM
As excitement heats up for “The Hunger Games” movie, you have to expect plenty of merchandising opportunities popping up.
Mattel is along for the game, announcing that they will release a Katniss Everdeen Barbie doll in April.
A Hunger Games Barbie?
For fans of the book series (and no doubt fans of the movie series as well), a Katniss Barbie is pretty darn cool, really.
Will you buy The Hunger Games Barbie for your kids?
It seems more of a collector’s item for fans than a toy for kids, but still, of all the Barbies to play with, why not set your girl up with a kickass character like Katniss?
There’s no word yet on what the Katniss Barbie will look like or what outfit she’ll be wearing, but fans interested in owning a Hunger Games Barbie can pre-order it for $32.99 from Entertainment Earth.
I’ll be holding out for a Peeta Mellark doll that smells like bread, thank you very much.
For Hunger Game fans, this comment from Huffington Post Teen about the Katniss Barbie is hilarious: (posted by gazugafan) “This is likely just propaganda from the Capitol. I mean, where do you think these dolls will be manufactured? Certainly not in District 12.”
