Monopoly: Pink boutique edition
Because girls are too busy painting their nails to understand things like real estate, Hasbro has chosen Toys R Us as the exclusive distributor of an all-pink boutique edition of Monopoly that swaps the traditional green houses and red hotels with pink and purple boutiques and malls.
Other thoughtful feminizing touches include pink Title Deed cards, Instant Message and Text Message instead of Community Chest and Chance cards, and a keepsake box that doubles (of course) as a jewelry box. Oh, and the thimble, dog, and all the other way-too-masculine playing pieces have been replaced with sandals, a purse, hair dryer, and other objects that girls can recognize.
The best part is that furthering gender stereotypes only costs $22.49. What a deal!
