Wondering Where You Can Get A Mockingjay Pin? Fans of The Hunger Games Will LOVE This Pin & These Other Mockingjay Gift Ideas...

A little behind the times, I am just now finishing the third book, Mockingjay, in the Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins. The first book in the series has been on the New York Times Bestseller list for 78 weeks and the other two books in the series have been solidly positioned on that list as well. As a matter of fact, when Mockingjay was released it sold 450,000 copies in the first week causing it to see its debut at the top of the New York Times Bestseller list. The trilogy and the upcoming movie are so popular in fact that they have spawned a wonderful selection of official (and unofficial) merchandise including but not limited to items featuring the Mockingjay.

If you are a fan of the series, you know and understand the significance of the mockingjay and the mockingjay pin. On this page, learn a bit more about the mockingjay symbol and find out where you can buy your very own replica of the mockingjay pin. The books are so good that I can really imagine wearing the pin to identify myself as someone who loves the series. I would love to be given the mockingjay pin or the necklace, or a t-shirt, or even the bracelet...

"It's as if someone fashioned a small golden bird and then attached a ring around it. The bird is connected to the ring only by its wing tips. I suddenly recognize it. A mockingjay." - Katniss Everdeen

What Is A Mockingjay?

A mockingjay is a bird that can trace its roots to another bird known as a jabberjay. Jabberjays were created to be spies and to overhear conversations and bring the information back to the government. However, the rebels figured out what the jabberjays were up to and spoke falsely whenever the jabberjays were around, eventually rendering the jabberjay useless. After a while, the jabberjays mated with mockingbirds becoming the mockingjay. The mockingjay can not repeat conversation but it can repeat song lyrics.

What Significance Is The Mockingjay Pin?

The mockingjay pin was a special token that Katniss Everdeen took with her when she went to the Hunger Games. A friend gave her the pin as a good luck token. The pin became a symbol for not just Katniss Everdeen but also for the people of the districts.

You can see the mockingjay pin on the cover of The Hunger Games shown here.

Buy your mocking jay pin right here from Amazon

The mockingjay pin is an official product associated with the movie being produced by Lionsgate Films. It's a great souvenir of your love of the books or a great accessory to wear to the movie. I love the idea of wearing it as it will 'mark' you as someone who knows and loves the series. The manufacturer, by the way, recommends this piece of jewellery for individuals aged 14 and up. None of these items are expensive; they are fun and actually very inexpensive. Be sure, therefore, to have think of them as such. They're mass made items designed to declare your interest in the movie but they are not made of real gold or silver.

Another interesting way to bring a Mockingjay into your collection is by choosing a poster that shares the image as is shown in this one. The poster retails on All Posters for just $10 unframed but is also available for sale framed. You can check it out at allposters.com by clicking right here.

I like the image on this poster. It does a good job of representing the movies and I like the fact that it proclaims the Hunger Games slogan, "May The Odds Be Ever In Your Favour."

      I am just finishing the third book now, as you were when you wrote the introduction to this lens. Small world. Thanks for visiting my Books from the Heartland lens, as well! I love what you do. You are an inspiration! ;-)

      My daughter bought a Mockingjay pin when she went to see the opening Midnight showing of the Hunger Games last Thurs night. She has read the books twice and she loved the film too. This weekend she is going again to see the movie! I still have yet to read the books or see the film- but it looks amazing. Great lens btw:)

      I am a substitute teacher and it seems that every student at the school where I teach is a fan of The Hunger Games. I haven't read the books or seen the movie yet, so I was unfamiliar with the Mockingjay pin and its significance before reading your lens. Thanks for the education! All the best.

      @anonymous: Hi, the eBay seller who had the charm bracelet is also the seller with the four items listed below the picture of the bracelet. I expect if you click through on one of those links to his shop and ask him, he may be able to help you. (If he still has the charm bracelet.)

      I have not yet had the chance to read this series of books. A dear friend of mine absolutely loves them and the Mockingjay pin or necklace would make a perfect gift, very neat!

      I most definitely want a mockingjay pin or earrings or both! Loved the series. I could not stop reading once I started and ran through all 3 really fast. I don't think I will be the only person in town wearing a mockingjay pin.

      I've not read the books either, but the Mockingjay jewelry looks intriguing.

      Of COURSE there's a mockingjay pin. I wish I'd thought of that!

      I'll admit that I haven't read any of the books yet, so I don't have a pin. This is beautiful jewelry, though, and certainly a piece or two would make a great gift for a Hunger Games fan. Thanks for enlightening me!
