Candy Land Child’s First Board Game is always fun to find in gift wrapping or under a tree. Candy Land as a first game for toddlers is perfect for helping your child begin to learn social skills and sharing.
Candy Land holds a special place in the hearts of many of today’s adults. For many it was the first board game they played.
The Candy Land game pictured below is the updated version Kingdom of Sweets.
Because the game has a fairy tale story feeling about it children relate very well. “Once upon a time, King Kandy, the Imperial Head Bonbon and Grand Jujube of Candy Land disappeared.” With a beginning like that, how could it be anything but wondrous?

- No reading required to play
- This is the classic “child’s first game”, and preschoolers will love it

There are some real advantages to a child learning to play Candy Land. First, everyone has a chance a to win. It is not based up age or knowledge like Trivial Pursuit or Scrabble. It’s all chance. Even the youngest child can win.
Lessons are learned from playing the game of Candy Land. Your little prince or princess must learn to take turns with other people.
They also learn to identify colors and shapes, and to comprehend board game play. Rules, the one thing that will be with them all their lives, begin to help them understand a more structured environment. They also learn good sportsmanship and game conduct in not always winning but learning to congratulate the winner.
Candy Land is a fun way to introduce your child to the “it’s not all about me” and “life is not always fair” understanding before the real world seriously disappoints them.
