Save the wheelbarrow! UPDATE: It was saved. And a cat? Really?

UPDATE: The voting is over and the wheelbarrow survived the voting. Monopoly fans voted the iron off the board, replacing it with a cat.

A cat? Seriously?

Maybe it was time for equal time. There is a dog. But a cat? It’s only a matter of time before the cats wanders off the Boardwalk and winds up in jail.

Here’s a story about it.


This week, Hasbro will retire one of the classic game tokens used to play Monopoly.

On behalf of True-Temper, a Camp Hill-based company, we’d like to make a plea to save the wheelbarrow. The wheelbarrow is pretty cool. But then, so’s the car and the top hat and the dog. Something’s gotta give.

But True-Temper, which make wheelbarrows, wants to save it.

You can help by logging on to on Monopoly’s “Save Your Token” promotion page, following the prompt and then encouraging their friends to vote, too.

If you want to help, act quickly. Voting ends today.
