I don't think any little kids should go through childhood without knowing the magic of the board game, Candy Land. This game has been around for many years because it is such a great game. I played this game when I was little, then I passed it down to my nephew.
This game is for ages 3-6 and it is for 2-4 players. There is a very colorful game board that all kids love. My favorite was Queen Frostine in her blue dress. It does not require reading. Each player uses a gingerbread man to move through the different and delicious lands on the game board, like Gumdrop Mountain and Molasses Swamp.
All you do is take turns picking the color coded cards. Whatever color turns up, you move to that space. It could not be easier and it teaches kids their colors.
Whoever makes it to the end of the trail to Kind Kandy's Castle is the winner! You can play until everyone arrives at the castle so there are no hard feelings.
I really love Candy Land.
