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?
A 13-year-old girl’s campaign to get Hasbro to make an Easy-Bake Oven that isn’t purple or pink so it would appeal to her little brother is a fresh sign of movement in an old debate. Parents who hope to expose their children to different kinds of play — science sets for girls and dolls for boys, for example — can find themselves stymied by a toy industry that can seem stuck in the past when it comes to gender roles.
A New Jersey teenager has filed a petition on Change.org in the hopes of encouraging the CEO of Hasbro to make Easy-Bake Ovens less exclusionary of young boys.
