History of the board game Candy Land-Let's play!

Eleanor Abbot created the concept and submitted the idea to the popular game maker, Milton Bradley. The first CANDY LAND games were introduced in 1949 and sold for a dollar a piece. The game was promoted as "A Sweet Little Game for Sweet Little Folks". The candy theme and sweet dreams it evoked made it an instant hit. Today, over 40 million CANDY LAND games have been manufactured.
