When I first heard about the Katniss Everdeen Barbie doll, I had very mixed feelings. The doll is now available for pre-order, and though I’m not sold, I’m relieved she doesn’t look as much like the classic Barbie doll as I feared she would. She’s wearing her arena outfit and comes with bow and arrows.
Designer Bill Greening says:
“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.”
You’ll be able to get your Katniss doll in August. No word yet whether it comes with fake blood from the other tributes.
