The new token that Monopoly fans picked in a Febuary vote — a cat — is now available inside the popular games, as the company retires the iconic iron piece that has been part of the game for the last 78 years.

Fans from 120 countries, including Djibouti, Kyrgyzstan, Guam, and Liechtenstein, selected the new cat token above other options like a robot, helicopter, diamond ring, and guitar, Hasbro Gaming said back in February.

"We know that cat lovers around the world will be happy to welcome the new cat token into the Monopoly game," Hasbro Gaming's Eric Nyman said in a statement. "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."

Tech site Gizmodo published a mock review of the cat token this week.

"This itty bitty metallic kitty measures in at about one-half-inch wide by one-half-inch long and blends in flawlessly with its team of capitalist cohorts," the review read. "It has a face, four legs, a tail — you know, cat parts. Plus, our little token feline friend is hypoallergenic, cool to the touch, and as far as we can tell, not alive."  

Most Twitter users are excited about the new Monopoly token, but some will miss the iron.
