As if a massive blue cockerel atop Trafalgar Square’s Fourth Plinth wasn’t enough, today a large silver cat became the latest over-sized replica animal to turn heads around the capital.
The giant Monopoly cat toured London’s landmarks as it prepares to replace the iron token in the classic game.
Eric Nyman, senior vice president and global brand leader for Hasbro Gaming, said: “We know that cat lovers around the world will be happy to welcome the new cat token into the Monopoly game. While we’re a bit sad to see the iron go, the cat token is a fantastic choice by the fans and we have no doubt it will become just as iconic as the original tokens.”
The cat won a public vote to become the latest addition to the game.
