Goodbye Iron, Hello Kitty: Hasbro Has a New Monopoly Token

Move over, iron. After a 76-year run as an iconic Monopoly token, Hasbro just announced the iron will be replaced…by a cat! Joining the other classic tokens, the new feline piece conquered the competition—a toy robot, guitar, helicopter and diamond ring—in a contest on the Monopoly Facebook page. This is the very first time game fans have had a choice in which tokens to add and which to toss.

While we’re a bit sad to see the iron go, we think voters made the right choice. How about you?

P.S. Check out some of the super-cute cats currenty available at the ASPCA.

In my opinion the monopoly tokens have to be made to stand up cause not many of them can stand up which makes the game harder to move around the board.

What a relief! Everybody wants to be the dog in Monopoly, now there's an equally fun choice. The iron will be missed, but not much...

Finally.. I hated the iron... I love cats (big or small)


I LOVE the Iron Token. It was my FAVORITE. The cat one is very nice as well though.
