    Monopoly, Why The Hell Would You Get Rid Of The Thimble And Wheelbarrow Game Pieces

    NOT OK.

    Psssttt, Monopoly, over here. I've got a question fer ya... WHAT THE HELL?

    Hasbro

    It has come to my attention that you are getting rid of the thimble, wheelbarrow and boot tokens.

    And replacing them with some dumb shit!!!

    And by dumb shit I mean a T-Rex, a penguin and a rubber ducky.

    Now I get it, it was a peoples vote, blah blah blah, and they are kinda cute tbh, BUT IT'S JUST WRONG. Plain old wrong!

    Because you're just gonna DITCH these beloved tokens, just like that?

    Hasbro

    How could you get rid of the thimble? The thimble that fit so perfectly on my tiny kid fingers. The thimble that MEANT something to me.

    And the wheelbarrow. The wheelbarrow that I wheeled around the boardgame with my little kid hands and it was FUN.

    And the shoe! The shoe that has no tongue but whatever, it was a GOOD BOOT.

    Hasbro

    How. Why. Who. I just. No. THIS ISN'T RIGHT!!!!

    First you get rid of the iron and give us this cat. It wasn't right.

    And then you come for some of the most iconic tokens on the board?
