Fun Way To Teach Colors
on January 15, 2018
I remember Milton-Bradley as the original maker of Candy Land, which it eventually sold to Hasbro. Candy Land is a great way to initiate family game night! It’s fun to play this childhood game with my grandson to help reinforce his color knowledge, too.
If you have a high-energy kid, the thin cards will get creased and bent straight away, which is to be expected with any game that uses cards rather than a spinner. No worries. It means your game is getting plenty of use, which is the entire point, right?
If price is more important to you than time, shop around locally. I overpaid on Amazon and found out later I could get this exact version for $7.99 elsewhere.
My other issue is the board design I received which is too busy (see my photo). It makes it difficult for beginners to distinguish the path from the other game board illustrations. If this bothers you, too, try looking for the Retro Series Candy Land edition.
Yes, I’d buy Candy Land again, but I’d do a bit more checking on prices and different editions first.
