Rated 1 out of 5★ by Pieces77 Super cheepy version I was expecting the classic Candy Land game to give to my nephew. Over the years Candyland has been updated to be more gender neutral with boys and girls in the illustrations. This one has been "updated" so that all the characters are super girly. The board and game pieces are really cheap looking and the game is played totally differently with a spinner instead of the traditional cards. 12/25/2013
Rated 4 out of 5★ by kfrumie5 Great Beginners Game This condensed version of the original is great for beginners! Instead of using the cards (that are littered on the floor when your toddler moves on) it uses a spinner. This was easier for my 3 year old to use and takes up less space.The overall look of the game and characters is a little girly, not a problem for me (mother of 2 girls) but might be disappointing for others. 01/08/2014

Rated 3 out of 5★ by ridgetop01 Not what it used to be, but still fun. The game used to have cards to pull from a deck, gingerbread-shaped playing pieces, and a board that was interesting but not cluttered or overwhelming. The new game is flashy and aggressive in appearance, with every space on it filled with hyper-modern cartoon characters that are of a kind with what kids see everywhere now, I suppose. It uses a spinner that's hard to hold down while spinning, instead of cards, and the game pieces are odd character shapes with stick-on images that were somewhat hard to identify. My grown daughter and I much preferred the older versions of the game for their simplicity and whimsy. This modern version feels over-stimulating, as so much of children's programming is now, I suppose. My 6 year old granddaughter seemed to enjoy the game, however, so I'd say that it is probably fine for the kids of today. It generally plays about the same as it always did. I do wish, however, that they'd tone it down some - the cluttered board does not add to the game's play value, it just adds to the general stress of the times.So - a good game for young children, as it always was, easy to play, just not the game you may remember, visually. 06/06/2014
