Life-Size Candyland Game

Chocolate swamp, lollipop forest, the gumdrop guy . . . do you remember all those places and characters?

Come to the Pittsfield Branch on Tuesday, April 3 sometime between 1:00 and 4:00 p.m and take your turn along the multi-colored path of the Candyland game. You will be the moving game piece. There will be a reward when you make it all the way through.

This is for grades K - 5. Younger children will need their adults with them at all times. There will be excellent photo opportunities!

We will have all kinds of board games here at the Library for you to play as you await your turn through Candyland.


One of my favorite board games of all time! Oddly, necessity is the mother of invention. Many thanks to AADL for putting the April 3 idea together! The history of Candyland is as follows: "The game was designed in 1945 by Eleanor Abbott, while she was recovering from polio in San Diego, California. The game was bought by Milton Bradley Company (now owned by Hasbro) and first published in 1949.[2] Hasbro produces several versions of the game and treats it as a brand. For example, they market Candy Land puzzles, a travel version, a PC game, and a handheld electronic version."-Wikipedia

This is such a great idea, one that I've always wanted to, and now I'm too old *sniff*
maybe I can sneak in with my little siblings... :P

Good idea for spring break!
