Feel like reenacting the struggles of Panem with Katniss? Want to relive the Hunger Games?
Luckily for you, or for the Hunger Games fan in your house, Mattel has just released the first look of the Katniss Barbie doll.
She’s wearing what she wore into the Games and comes complete with a miniature mockingjay pin, bow and arrow, forest-tromping boots, and that one, plump braid.
Designer Bill Greening: “I chose to dress her in the outfit she wears during the games, since this is where all the non-stop action takes place and is instantly recognizable by fans,” says Greening of the Katniss Barbie. “Of course, she wears her mockingjay pin proudly on her lapel.”The face looks like Jennifer Lawrence to me, after a bit of Barbieizing. The clothes look fantastic.
No word yet on Peeta or Gale dolls. I guess good ole Ken will have to fill in.
The doll will release in August, or you can pre-order on various Barbie websites.
