question of the day: What do you think of the Katniss Everdeen Barbie?

I confess that when I heard that Mattel was bringing a Hunger Games Barbie doll to stores, I cringed. Is there a character in moviedom less Barbie than Katniss Everdeen? How could she run to save her life with those permanently high-heeled feet?
But now that we see the doll (via Movieline), I find myself pleasantly surprised:

Katniss Everdeen Barbie

As Jen Yamato at Movieline notes, she looks more like Katniss as described in the books than Jennifer Lawrence does. (Though it remains tough to imagine another young actress who could have pulled off the role.)

What do you think of the Katniss Everdeen Barbie? Would you buy it? For yourself? For a little girl or boy?
