Hunger Games Katniss becomes a Barbie Doll
If Katniss really had the same waist line that Barbie did, you could really say she was involved in the Hunger Games! I’m just kidding. But there’s no joke in the fact that the Hunger Games is this year’s Harry Potter. And the new Katniss doll is going to be on every girl’s wish list come the Holidays.
“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 mocking jay pin proudly on her lapel.” – Designer Bill Greening
Some are saying that to offer a Katniss version of Barbie cheapens both franchises. The purists are going to say that Katniss is nowhere near the prissy look of a Barbie Doll, and the Barbie purists will claim that Barbie is a woman in her own right (personally, I think they’re afraid Ken will leave Babs for a newer trophy babe, even if she does have a bow).
But there’s no denying that the character of Katniss is a great character and for girls to look up to her for her strength and courage is a good thing. So as far as CT is concerned, that can be nothing but a great thing! Available this fall (just in time for Christmas) for about $30 from Barbie Collector.
