Candy Land is a simple racing board game published by Hasbro. It requires no reading and minimal counting skills, making it a perfect game for young children.
The pastime has little strategy involved, as players are never asked to make decisions, but just follow instructions as random cards are drawn.
About one million Candy Land games are sold annually.
The amusement was designed by San Diego's Eleanor Abbott in 1948 and first published in 1949 after being purchased by Milton Bradley. Hasbro bought Milton Bradley in 1984.See Attachment
