Candyland!

My three year old son has a new obsession and that's playing Candyland, that bright and colorful fun boardgame by Hasbro. Every day without fail, he wants to play "the candy game" with me. And I don't mind at all - I'm really impressed with the way he gets into it. This is the first game that he's actually seemed to understand and he plays fair, takes turns and smiles the whole time, especially when he draws the lollipop card.

Hasbro has redesigned the game to give an even "sweeter" experience. There are all sorts of delicious sounding lands, like Cupcake Commons, Gummy Hills and Chocolate Mountain. There are fun characters too, such as the Duke of Swirl and Lord Licorice. I actually never played the game as a child so it's all new to me, but I'm having a blast playing with my son! Hasbro and MyBlogSpark sent me an awesome package so that I could put on a fun Candyland party of my own. I received a gift card that I spent on decorations and yummy food, including candy!




I also received a brand new Flip video camera, with which I recorded a super cute video of some of the kids playing the game:



We did some Candyland coloring and then everyone went home with their very own copy of the game. Good times!
