🌈Happy rainbowtastic day to you!!🌈


I would like to tell you all about the game called Candyland (Candy Land)!! Candyland is a board game. Did you know that Candyland was actually invented by a woman named Eleanor Abbott in 1948? She was in the hospital and diagnosed with polio. There were a lot of very sick children in there with polio, too. So, a retired school teacher, Eleanor Abbott, decided to make a game for all the children. The Candyland (Candy Land) game kept the children busy and gave them something fun to do for hours. Sometime in 1949, Eleanor Abbott sold the game to Milton Bradley. Candyland was one of the first board games I learned to play as a child. My siblings and I loved playing this game.
