“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 assist 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 probably the most characters’ symbols: draw a blue card, move to the nearest blue stepping-stone; draw a snowflake and earn a consult with to Queen Frostine’s iceberg. There are occasional pitfalls, too: land on the fallacious square and you may well be stuck in Molasses Swamp until a red card is drawn. With most of these enticing, sugarcoated images (and King Kandy it appears that evidently visible at path’s end), children can’t assist 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 Ubben
