What parents need to know

Parents need to know that SweetLand - Family Board Game is a simple game similar to the classic Candy Land. It requires no special skills; the game even does the color-matching for you. There's a spot on the wheel that can potentially send you all the way back to the beginning (or nearly all the way to the end), which young kids might find frustrating and unfair. The game has the potential to run long if players are sent back several times.

What's it about?

SWEETLAND - FAMILY BOARD GAME is a board game for up to four players that's friendly for the whole family. Kids choose their game piece, a cute and cuddly creature whose fur is either red, yellow, blue, or purple. They enter their names (or use stock names), then take turns spinning the wheel to see what color space they'll move to. To move, they hold down a colored button, and their creature will travel to the appropriate space. Sometimes the wheel randomly selects a marked space on the board and moves the player there, which could be forward or back. Kids can view the game from the perspective of their creature, or they can see the gameboard from above so they know where they are on their path. The first player to the finish wins the game.

Is it any good?

SweetLand - Family Board Game is a simple game that helps introduce little ones to the concept of taking turns. It lacks some of the educational value of the real-world board game Candy Land, as players don't need to match the colors on their cards to the colors on a board; the game does that for you. Young kids will enjoy the bright colors, cute creatures, and candy on the board, but without more interactive elements, the game may not hold older kids' attention.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about taking turns. Is it hard to wait for your turn? What can you do while you wait?

  • Discuss good sportsmanship. How do you feel when you win a game? When you lose? How would like to be treated when you win/lose?
