Yes, Virginia, There Will Be a Hunger Games Barbie!

Posted by thedollcafe at Monday, March 26, 2012
Yes, the rumors are true!  Mattel confirmed that there will be  Katniss Barbie for sale soon!  Bill Greening also confirmed the news on his Facebook page Friday.  Hopefully that means that Bill G is the designer!  The Reuters news release does not really give many details but I suspect the price point will be 29.99 to 34.99.  Hopefully Katniss will come with her own face mold modeled after actress Jennifer Lawrence, but I am not getting my hopes up.  The Tango mold might be a great choice but the Goddess or Kayla/Lea mold could also work as well for Katniss.  Take a look at the various molds.  What do you think?  Either way, Katniss Barbie would be a good way to make use of a mold other than the Mackie or Generation Girl molds used for Bella from Twilight and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge.  The Hunger Games franchise looks like it will be worth millions.  It's no wonder that Mattel decided that a Hunger Games Barbie would be part of the action.  I have not read the books or seen the movie but if this is a Barbie doll that I like I would consider buying her.  With the legions of Hunger Games fans this doll may be a big hit!

In other news, I ran across this article today and must admit I don't think I've ever heard about Charlotte Buettenback Johnson and her role in Barbie history.  Enjoy!

Never heard about Charlotte either. That's such an interesting piece of information about the contour of Barbie's face.

Isn't that interesting Ada? I'll have to ask Carol Spencer if she worked with Miss Charlotte at all during her time at Mattel. I have the feeling Charlotte was there much earlier.
