Because it is easy to understand and requires no reading, Candy Land® is the first board game many children play. First sold in 1949, this version was made in the 1960s.©2012 The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis, Inc.

I loved visiting my Grandmother and Grandfather when I was a little girl. Part of the fun was getting to play with the toys they had for us in a cabinet in their living room. They had two board games and a set of checkers along with some small toys. I loved playing Candy Land and Chutes and Ladders. Whenever I see either of these board games I am instantly back in their living room and can almost smell my Grandfathers cigar! - Erika, Indianapolis
