Hello Kitty: Updated Monopoly Game Available

RENEE MONTAGNE, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Renee Montagne, and I for one will miss the tiny iron, even if the Monopoly token replacing it is, OK, a cat. The new Monopoly games hitting store shelves contains a sleek kitty, who will join the classic Scottie dog and top hat. Fans adopted the cat in an online vote earlier this year and shelved the iron after a 78-year run. That piece will join other retired tokens, including the lantern, rocking horse, and cannon. It's MEOW-Y EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
