Hasbro's "CANDYLAND The world of sweets" is one sweet game ! R+G - 6/15

This is the first board game that my son played with me. It is hard to get him to sit and focus on something.He would prefer to drive his trucks and cars and make traffics jams at the entrance of rooms than play a game.Sounds like a boy to me!

So when I got this game, I did not open it right away and left it for him to get curious about it. He asked me several times if we could play it and I told him that he had to wait. I wanted him to look forward to playing the game so he will sit there for a while.And the day arrived when mommy would open the box which he thought would be full of candy! LOL. Like the name says, the board appears like a land filled with cupcakes and lollipops and colorful candies. 

This is a VERY GOOD game, if your toddler won't sit for a long time. The simplicity of this game is what makes it apt for a toddler whose attention span is fairly short.


I tried to tell him that board games are not only fun but good for the brain as it helps him think. He usually gets the "It is good for your .." part, but what follows that is still all a mystery to him! Sometime during the game, he told me "Mommy play this, it is good for your skin!" I just burst into peels of laughter!

It comes with a sturdy board, a pack of cards with bright, solid color squares and 4 little figurines who we decided to name " Candy Men". The less pieces and less rules, the more the focus on what actually is expected of the child when they play. That is the best feature of this game and I love that.

So we pick out one card and as per the color, move the candy man along the colored path. That's it.It is not even a matter of winning or loosing, though it can be played competitively by slightly older children. Lots of color matching, moving and the board itself is a treat to the eyes. Ideally we would have loved to have something sweet after the game but since it was evening, we decided to skip that.But that would be a real treat!
