The Mockingjay Gift Ideas
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...
How about you?
"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.

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."
