Candy Land Sweet Celebration Review

Hasbro has offered me two review opportunities!!  One of them will be coming next week.  The other I'm going to share with you today!!!

Candy Land Sweet Celebration!!
If you are at all familiar with the classic Candy Land game, then this new version will knock your socks off!  Candy Land Sweet Celebration game is a 3D version that is somewhat similar to the original.

There is definitely some adult assembly required, but it isn't difficult.  The game includes path pieces, 5 sweet stops, 16 treat tokens, a cardboard spinner, 5 pawns, plastic button and instructions.  It took Mallory and I about 20 minutes to completely assemble the game to get it ready to be played.

We carefully sorted all the game pieces and read the instructions. 

The 3D sweet stops are so festive and colorful.  The tokens that are obtained at these stops are placed in various locations at each stop - under the ice, under the picnic blanket, etc.  The variety makes each stop fun and unique.

In this new game, you can actually control the length of your game by building and customizing your own path.  If you want a quick game, build a smaller path!  You can use all of the sweet stops or just a few.  The game can be new and different every time you play!!  The variety keeps the game interesting and can grow with each child's maturity and ability level.

What does Hasbro have to say about this game???  Here's a quote from their website:

"King Kandy is hosting a grand celebration and everyone’s invited to his castle! But first you need to travel the rainbow path and collect a few treats to bring with you. Along the way, you’ll encounter new friends like Captain Kidd Cone, and travel to new locations like Ice Cream Harbor. But watch out for that tricky Lord Licorice! He’ll try to block your path. The first to reach the castle with all their treats wins!"

This is a fabulous game!  Mallory and I have really enjoyed playing it together!  It's going to be one of our favorites for years to come.

This game is appropriate for ages 4 and up and can be played with 2-4 players.
  Hasbro products are widely available wherever toys and games are sold, including: Wal-Mart, Toys "R" Us, Target, Kmart, and FAO Schwarz.

You can buy it directly from Hasbro here.

My sincere thanks to Jennie at Hasbro for offering me this great review opportunity!
