The new monopoly pieces have been revealed as a T-Rex, a rubber duck and a penguin.

The classic boot token has been given its marching orders, along with the thimble and wheelbarrow.

More than 3.4 million people from 146 countries voted on new pieces for the board game made by US firm Hasbro.

Other contenders included a winking emoji, a hashtag, a clunky 80s-style cellphone and a pair of bunny slippers.

The existing Scottish Terrier, battleship, racecar, top hat and cat tokens will carry on.

Jonathan Berkowitz, Hasbro's senior vice president of marketing, grew up playing the game with his family.

"While I'm sad to see the iconic thimble, boot, and wheelbarrow tokens go, it will be fun to have some new, fan-sourced tokens in the mix.”

The next version of the game will go on sale with the new tokens – now gold – in the Autumn.
