How a Charm Bracelet Inspired the Monopoly Games Tokens

The article “How a Charm Bracelet Inspired the Monopoly Tokens” tells how Charles Darrow, the creator of the Monopoly game, nieces were fond of using pieces from there charm bracelets as game tokens when they played Monopoly. It seems Parker Brothers liked the idea and decided to include charm like tokens in their first release of Monopoly.

The article goes on to tell of other tokens that have been used throughout the years. The last photograph on the page displays some vintage 1950’s tokens, some of these I vaguely remember playing with a child.
