A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this website.
Products & Purchases
Candy products abound -- the ads are embedded into the games.
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this site is a sweet treat but oh, so full of advertising embedded into the games. Can kids tune it out? Or will you have to spend the next few months steering into the "no candy" checkout at the grocery store?
Is It Any Good?
The ads that run before games on Candystand.com can get annoying, and the option to win real-life prizes isn't sending the best message to kids, but at least this site doesn't focus on the not-so-kid-friendly games like shooters. Parents will like that there's a brain-using puzzle section, and kids will get into the large-screen format and well laid-out design. No doubt, like most gaming sites with plenty of stuff to choose from, Candystand.com will be a hard one to tear kids away from.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
