Candyland Series Part 1-Candyland Kids








Candyland I remember from my childhood

Candyland Series Part 1- Candyland Kids & The Gingerbread Men

Do you remember the Candyland game from your childhood?

It was most likely one of the first games you learned to play, you didn't need to count above two and you barely even had to know your colors, as you were able to match the colors of the card to the board. Many kids loved the special cards so much, that they would go as far as remixing them and strategically placing the cards where they would be the one to receive the special cards.

I had the idea of bringing this game to life. I wanted it to be a game that people would be able to walk through and collect the candies in real life.

I decided to do this theme for the holiday of Purim. It's not obligatory to do all this work for it, but for fun I decided to go for it. We are only obligated to give one person 2 respectable food items. You can read more about the obligations of the day here & here.

There are costumes as we dress up. Candyland has many characters, so there is something for everyone, whether you choose to dress up as a few characters or get everyone together for all the characters.

Characters & Locations List:

  1. Candyland Kids at the Beginning of the board
  2. Gingerbread Men at the Beginning of the board
  3. Plumpy under the Gingerbread Plum Tree
  4. Mr. Mint in the Peppermint Forest
  5. Jolly near the Gumdrop Mountains
  6. Gramma Nut near her cottage
  7. Princess Lolly in the lollipop woods
  8. Queen Frostine in the Ice Cream Sea
  9. Gloppy in the Molasses/Chocolate Swamp depending on version
  10. King Kandy

For this post we are going to focus on the Candyland Kids and the Gingerbread Men as they go together. The Gingerbread Men serve as the Candyland Kids guides on their adventure to find the lost King Kandy.
