MAHWAH, N.J. -- A favorite childhood game is coming to life at the Mahwah Library on Tuesday, Dec. 13.

Staff are turning a room of the library into a giant Candy Land board where kids and parents will be the actual game pieces. Game play takes place from 4:15-5:15 p.m.

There will be fun things along the way, like a life-sized candy cane forest and larger-than-life lollipops.

Registration is required to participate by calling the Children's Department of the library, 201-529-7323 ext. 230, or going to the library's website . There is no charge.

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.
