"Once upon a time, King Kandy, the Imperial Head Bonbon and Grand Jujube of Candy Land disappeared." Thus begins the magical journey of Milton Bradley's classic Candy Land board game. Captivated by the story of a kidnapped king and eager to help find him, little ones move their gingerbread pawns along a rainbow path and through a land of candy characters, all subjects of King Kandy's realm.
Playing cards thoughtfully designed for non-readers are coded with colorful squares matching the jeweled stepping-stone path or an occasional token matching one of the characters' symbols: draw a blue card, move to the nearest blue stepping-stone; draw a snowflake and earn a visit to Queen Frostine's iceberg. There are occasional pitfalls, too: land on the wrong square and you might be stuck in Molasses Swamp until a red card is drawn. With all these enticing, sugarcoated images (and King Kandy plainly visible at path's end), children can't help but be delighted by Candy Land. It's delicious! Instructions are in both Spanish and English. Candy Land is for two to four players) --Julie UbbenSee all Product description

The game pieces are all plastic, not the cardboard with plastic slotted feet that they used to be. It makes them more durable for little hands as they can be rough with them. Plus without taking them off and on the plastic feet, it saves in wear.
The cards are a thick, glossy cardstock - easy to clean if they get dirty. They need a rubberband to hold them together when you put them away. I'm surprised the manufacturer didn't provide something for it as they scatter all over the box if you don't.
The board is slightly more busy than past versions, but if you have a child who likes to study the board, you have given them a few more minutes of entertainment. My son likes to put the people pieces on the pictures and have them fall down the waterfalls and lick the lollipops. Why stifle creativity?
The illustrations are vivid and well done. Yet not so overpowering that they take over the board. The main course to the palace is easy to follow as my 2.5 year old can attest to as he runs the pieces along the path to the castle.
This version is my favorite so far and well worth the time to play it.
We bought this for my 3-year-old daughter for Christmas, and it has been a big hit. Her and her 2-year-old brother beg to play it everyday when I get home from work. It is fun and colorful, and helps to teach them how to be patient and take turns as well as how to have fun, even if you don't finish first.
Candy land is simple enough for a 2-year old to figure out, and fun enough not to make the parents who have to play with them completely miserable. It brings back memories from my childhood, so I have a lot of fun playing as well.
My daughter loves counting the colors, and she loves narrating her path and telling stories about how she met Queen Frostine on her way to King Candy's castle. My son loves drawing the cards and moving his piece along the path.
The board is very sturdy, but the cards get pretty messed up pretty quick. My son has already crumpled up the cupcake card, so we know when that one is coming in the stack. There is a version of this game that has a spinner instead of cards, which they got from my brother for Christmas (what a coincidence), but my kids enjoy picking a card more than using the spinner.
My daughter gets pretty creative telling stories about the Candy Land characters, but the best part about this game is that it teaches kids how to be patient and wait for their turn in a creative way.
My kids are pretty patient for being toddlers, but they are still toddlers. When they want something, they want it, and they usually aren't willing to wait for their turn. But within a few minutes of playing, they were remarkably good at taking turns. They cheered each other on, even if the other one just passed them up. They loved every minute of it.
Outside of game play, I have noticed them taking turns with toys and not fighting as much. They still fight, just not as much. They share their toys a lot better. I didn't expect that to happen. I don't think people really think that a board game would be able to teach kids life lessons, but its surprising how they carry the little things into their everyday interactions.
In conclusion, this is a great way to introduce children to board games and teach them patience and good sportsmanship. Its a must have for young children.
