The Scottie dog has a new nemesis in Monopoly after fans voted in an online contest to add a cat token to the property trading game, replacing the iron, toy maker Hasbro Inc. announced Wednesday.
The gig is almost up for one of the eight Monopoly tokens. But which will it be? Iron? Thimble? Top Hat?
McKenna Pope, 13, of Garfield, N.J., got more than 40,000 signatures on her online petition at Change.org and the support of celebrity chefs including Bobby Flay, who backed her call for Hasbro to make a gender-neutral oven and to include boys in the ads.
“Battleship” doesn’t exactly stink and therefore doesn’t exactly sink. But it doesn’t soar or score either.
