Hasbro is launching a new Monopoly game that gives women a monetary advantage from the start and is marking the occasion by giving some young inventors cash to fuel their projects. The new version of the game features a character called Ms. Monopoly, a venture capitalist and the niece of the iconic top-hatted Rich Uncle Pennybags, who has graced the game’s box cover of the game since its debut in 1935. According to USA Today, among the modern updates the game features is a pay bump for women — female players start the game with $1,900 in Monopoly Money while men receive $400 less.
Hasbro, Inc. (NASDAQ: HAS) has launched a new take on its iconic Monopoly board game, with Ms. Monopoly, touted as the first game where women make more than men. The game is Monopoly’s foray into the gender pay gap debate with rules tilted to favor women. "With all of the things surrounding female empowerment, it felt right to bring this to Monopoly in a fresh new way," Jen Boswinkel, senior director of global brand strategy and marketing for Hasbro said.
Monopoly is turning the gender pay gap upside down with a new version of the board game where women earn more than men, its creators - inspired by female trailblazers - said on Tuesday. Ms Monopoly replaces the game's familiar mustachioed real-estate mogul on the box with his female investor niece, as players compete to collect inventions made by women, including bullet proof vests and wifi, rather than properties.
Hasbro is trying to level the playing board with its new “Ms. Monopoly” game, where female players get $240 for passing Go, while men pocket just $200. People who've been bottling up their emotions are finally releasing them over Ms. Monopoly, and it's as weird as you would expect. Hasbro Gaming has rolled the dice on almost 1,000 variations of the wheeling and dealing real-estate game over the past 84 years, from “Star Wars,” “The Simpsons” and “Game of Thrones” editions, to the kid-friendly Monopoly Junior.
Hasbro Inc. introduced Tuesday its new "Ms. Monopoly" game, marking the first time in the franchise's history that a new character is on the board game's cover, and in which women make more than men. The toy maker said the game will hit shelves in mid-September nationwide and select countries for a suggested price of $19.99, but is now available for pre-order at Walmart Inc. . The company said while Mr. Monopoly is a real-estate mogul, Ms. Monopoly is "an advocate whose mission is to invest in female entrepreneurs." And although in "Ms. Monopoly" women have the advantage by making more than men, "if men play their cards right, they can make more money too." Hasbro's stock, which rose 0.8% in morning trading, has run up 41.3% year to date, while the S&P 500 has advanced 18.5%.
(Bloomberg) -- Jakks Pacific Inc., a toymaker exploring a sale amid a steep slide in its share price, has received a takeover offer from the owner of rival Jazwares Inc., according to people familiar with the matter.Alleghany Corp., Jazwares’ parent company, made an offer this week to buy Jakks Pacific for 85 cents a share, said the people, who asked to not be identified because the matter isn’t public. The offer values the Santa Monica, California-based company at about $27.7 million, based on its outstanding share count.No decision has been made and Alleghany could opt to not proceed with its bid, they said. Jazwares has also drawn interest from other potential buyers, including rival toymaker Just Play, they said.Jakks Pacific rose 18.3% to 90 cents at 3:29 p.m. in New York trading, giving the company a market value of about $29.2 million. The company, which had about $161 million in long term debt at June 30, has seen its shares fall about 69% in the past year.Representatives for Jakks Pacific and Alleghany declined to comment. A representative for Just Play didn’t respond to a request for comment. The discussions come as toymakers look to pair up to gain scale and diversify in the wake of the industry-upending bankruptcy last year of Toys “R” US Inc.Hasbro Inc., the world’s largest publicly traded toymaker, agreed last month to pay about $4 billion for Entertainment One Ltd., the maker of the children’s shows Peppa Pig and PJ Masks. MGA Entertainment Inc. made an unsolicited offer this year to buy rival Mattel Inc., which rebuffed the advance.Jakks Pacific has licenses to produce action figures and toys for well-known companies including Walt Disney Co., which owns lots of popular brands such as Marvel and Frozen but charges some of the heftiest royalties in the industry. That, along with the collapse of Toys “R” Us, has weighed on profits. Jakks Pacific has been losing money since 2017.It’s also been in play for most of this year, after shareholder Meisheng Cultural and Creative Corp. of China offered to buy 51% of its shares. In June, Jakks Pacific said it was still continuing to “explore alternative transactions,” according to a regulatory filing.Alleghany, based in New York, is an insurance company that somewhat resembles Berkshire Hathway Inc. It uses income from its insurance policies to make acquisitions in other sectors. It acquired a stake in Jazwares in 2014 and owned 77% of the company at the end of 2018, according to its most recent annual report.Jazwares won the license last year to produce toys for Fortnite, the popular shooting game owned by Epic Games Inc.(Updates to add interest from rival Just Play in third paragraph.)To contact the reporters on this story: Liana Baker in New York at email@example.com;Matt Townsend in New York at firstname.lastname@example.orgTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Daniel Hauck at email@example.com, ;Anne Riley Moffat at firstname.lastname@example.org, Matthew Monks, Michael HythaFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.
