Monopoly Play Money

toy money

Early in the success of Parker Brothers' best-selling game Monopoly, the firm realized they could profit from selling a few accessories. One such item is Monopoly play money. It seems the money got lost, or wore out before the games did. Monopoly is the best selling game in history and Parker's play money, sold separately, helps to demonstrate this fact.
