Monopoly fans vote to add cat, toss iron tokens
The social-media buzz created by the Save Your Token Campaign attracted numerous companies that pushed to protect specific tokens that reflect their products.
That includes garden tool maker Ames True Temper Inc., of Camp Hill, Pa., which created a series of online videos in favor of the wheelbarrow, and online shoe retailer Zappos, which pushed to save the shoe, Berkowitz said.
Versions of Monopoly with the new token will come out later this year.
