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.”
