There are few things that last the test of time when it comes to kids.
Star Wars sticks out in my head, as well as Barbie.
But probably more than those, Candy Land sticks out. Candy Land is the first game that many kids are given. I remember getting it and so my kids received the game as soon as they hit the magical age of 3.
Candy Land has redesigned their game board going from a horizontal layout to a vertical one. They have also revamped some of the characters on the board and the colors are much more vibrant. It’s still just as much fun and my kids and I enjoy playing several nights a week before bedtime.
Late last year I was given the opportunity to host a Candy Land party. My kids and I invited all our friends, picked up some lunch and got ready for the fun to begin. We had 3 boards going at once! It was so much fun to watch as the kids all played wonderfully together. Our little ones could even get in on the action since it was a great opportunity to teach them colors.
To show our fun I made a quick video about the day.
Now even more fun!
I have an extra game to give away. 🙂
