"Hunger Games" inspires tough-girl toys

"Hunger Games" has become a $1.6 billion-grossing franchise, and its studio, Lionsgate, is projecting that its newest sequel, "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1," will bring in $130 million to $150 million when it opens Friday. Now even the toy companies are cashing in on the Katniss tough-girl trend, reports CBS News contributor Lee Woodruff.
