The Hunger Games Barbie Dolls
Yes! There ARE Barbies For Both the Hunger Games and Catching Fire
Meet Katniss Everdeen, the girl on fire in The Hunger Games, in Barbie form from Mattel...and Katniss Everdeen from the Catching Fire movie and wait...there's a Peeta Mellark doll, and a Finnick Odair doll and a Effie Trinket doll and they're all great.
Modelled after The Hunger Games main character, this first Katnis Everdeen Barbie as shown here is a 'Collector' doll. That is, one that is created specifically for the adult collector, which seems appropriate given that The Hunger Games is not a children's book or movie. Other dolls in the Collector Series have included many super heroes, the Twilight characters and the cast of Mad Men.
That means that yes, there is a Barbie doll of Katniss Everdeen and her friends. Read on to learn more!

What Is The Hunger Games Barbie Like?
If you are concerned that Mattel might have dressed Barbie in a gown, which was a legitimate concern that some people had, you can relax. It turns out that Katniss Everdeen the Barbie doll appears exactly as Katniss Everdeen does during most of the story. Some consider her a near pefect replica. She is wearing a hooded jacket, a top and military-style pants that are a copy of the costume Jennifer Lawrence wore in the film when she appeared as Katniss. She also carries, of course, the mockingjay pin, bow, arrows and a quiver.
Designer Bill Green said, "Hopefully, Hunger Games fans can appreciate the attention to detail. The doll's minimalistic style and details - such as her loosely braided hair and makeup-free look - also really embody the heroic character Katniss."
