Should Katniss of 'The Huger Games' Be Made Into a Barbie Doll?

By now, if you haven't seen "The Hunger Games" at least once, you've read that it raked in the third-best opening weekend of all time. So it makes sense that everyone is trying to cash in as much as possible. And Mattel is no different. The company's Barbie Collector is producing a custom collectible doll inspired by heroine Katniss Everdeen, played by Jennifer Lawrence in the movie.



The doll is "created specifically for the adult collector," Mattel told The Hollywood Reporter. That's weird ... how many adults do you know who are into Katniss, let alone Katniss and Barbie dolls? If you've read the books or seen the movie, you know that Katniss is a very tough chick ... one who probably wouldn't take very kindly to being made into a Barbie doll, thank you very much.

But "Hunger Games" merchandise is officially out of control. You can wear "Hunger Games"-themed nail polish, take a "Hunger Games" workout class, make recipes from a "Hunger Games" cookbook and buy countless T-shirts, mugs and more. Do you think Katniss should be made into a Barbie doll? Or is this strong female character too bold to be a Barbie?

    If you're going to make a barbie doll modeled after this woman, then Sigourney Weaver's character in Aliens should get a barbie doll too. LOL! Weird people

    And what are The Huger Games??

    Whoa. I didn't even know I'd even answered this question; and I sure as heck don't think she should be turned into a barbie doll. But whatever.

    I think that Katniss herself if she wasn't just a book character, wouldn't like it. But, for fans of The Hunger Games who like collecting things like that I think it would be cool. I would buy it.

    Goddammit people. Did you f----ing read the book? You must then remember that all this commercialism is getting out of control. I mean, ok if you have a t-shirt or sweatshirt, or nail polish then that's one thing, but...COME ON! We as a country need to stop being so god damn materialistic. There are TWILIGHT Barbie dolls.....TWILIGHT, guys. I better not hear anyone compare The Hunger Games to Twilight. Ever.

    She's not pretty for a barbie and they refused to make Michelle Obama a barbie. Then why would they make this girl? What is so special about her? She is not that pretty Barbie has beautiful gowns and is pretty and has many cultures she reflects . This girl looks like she threw on some clothes and went to work and just gotta outta bed enough said.

    Are you serious? She's a kick ass female and she's being turned into a toy? It's this kind of consumerism that the Hunger Games warns about.

    Just because barbies are girly doesn't mean Katniss shouldnt be a Barbie she is a character loved by a lot of people so she should be recognized.

    plus if it does become a kids toy girls would need a stronger role model then i blonde "bimbo" (don't get me wrong i love barbie i used to have dolls of her when i was little) they need one that wouldn't be a rich girl that magically becomes a doctor or vet or scientist
    the girls that are tom-boys would love a katniss doll cause it'd make them feel that it's alright to be a tom-boy and not all interested in the colour pink or fairies or unicorns or princesses or "their dream wedding"

    This, just like all the other Hunger Games merchandise, reminds me yet again that us, the viewers, are just like the Capitol. I think it's interesting because so many people say they relate to Katniss yet they're buying all this STUFF, which completely goes against Katniss as a character and the book as a whole.

    Eh, whatever. Someone's going to be making money somewhere for it so why not.

    A doll, yes; but, not a barbie doll. I think she is a character that girls can look up to, but barbie has a reputation of ruining that image.

    The Hunger Games is not just about two kids fighting for their lives. It's about a world where people have become superficial to the point that the enjoy seeing kids die because it's "cool." It's about what could happen to us if we become even more enslaved to fashion than we already are. Not only does making a Katniss Barbie go completely against the book's message, the story deals with mature themes that children should not be exposed to when they're in ToysRUs.
