But the real question is, is anyone going to buy it?
Well, we’re, erm, a little bit shocked. We thought The Hunger Games was going to be all cool and awesome. But we’ve just heard that there’s going to be a Katniss Everdeen Barbie and now we’re not so sure.
Aw jeez, we’re really not sure about this whole idea. Katniss Everdeen is the complete opposite of a Barbie, she competes in the flippin’ Hunger Games for goodness sake.
But Mattel (the company who make Barbie) have decided that for whatever reason, Katniss is the next character who’s going to be made into a plastic Barbie doll.
On the site where you lucky lot in America can buy Katniss the Barbie (for only $28), there is a description of the doll:
‘With this Barbie Hunger Games Doll you can style Barbie just like Katniss Everdeen from the Hunger Games movie! Hunger Games, a movie starring Jennifer Lawrence, is adapted to film from the original young adult novel by writer Suzanne Collins. This doll’s outfit is made to replicate the very same one worn by the feature character in the movie, and it measures around 12-inches tall! Ages 6 and up.”
One thing we’re a tad confused at is that you can replicate the ‘outfit’ worn by Katniss. As in one outfit.
This isn’t The Simpsons, she’s doesn’t wear the same outfit the whole time.
