The picture and description advertises sale for "The World of Sweets Board Game" the one I played as I child. The board game I received was "Kingdom of Sweets Adventure". Though "Kingdom" version is much busier, it is not as sweet and cute as the "World" version. I especially don’t like how sexy the snowflake princess looks, she looks like one of those horrid Bratz dolls, and the prince looks awfully cheesy. Thoroughly disappointed, very misleading Check it out!
Product Description Start down the magical road to sweet surprises! This adorable version of the classic Candyland game features the colored cards and fun illustrations that kids love, with different destinations like Cupcake Commons and the chunky Chocolate Mountains. Choose your cards, move your pawn and let your imagination soar as you make your way to the castle to win! Amazon.com “Once upon a time, King Kandy, the Imperial Head Bonbon and Grand Jujube of Candy Land disappeared.” Thus begins the magical journey of Milton Bradley’s classic Candy Land board game. Captivated by the story of a kidnapped king and eager to help find him, little ones move their gingerbread pawns along a rainbow path and through a land of candy characters, all subjects of King Kandy’s realm. Playing cards thoughtfully designed for non-readers are coded with colorful squares matching the jeweled stepping-stone path or an occasional token matching one of the characters’ symbols: draw a blue card, move to the nearest blue stepping-stone; draw a snowflake and earn a visit to Queen Frostine’s iceberg. There are occasional pitfalls, too: land on the wrong square and you might be stuck in Molasses Swamp until a red card is drawn. With all these enticing, sugarcoated images (and King Kandy plainly visible at path’s end), children can’t help but be delighted by Candy Land. It’s delicious! Instructions are in both Spanish and English. Candy Land is for two to four players) –Julie Ubben See all Product description
Candy Land The World of Sweets Game (Amazon Exclusive) Review
I wish I could find any of the earlier, less cluttered, better-designed, Candyland boards. In fact, I ordered 2 from Amazon that clearly displayed earlier versions and in both cases the seller sent me the latest one. You can’t trust the product picture or seller’s description as “collectable” on this site. -Read Reviews-

I purchased the World of Sweets version, but the game that came was not the version pictured- it was the cheaper, flimsier version. I specifically didn’t want the cheaper version due to the reviews that indicated it was poor quality. I had to send the game back- fortunately Amazon makes it very easy to do so. I’ll probably try to buy this in the store, where I can make sure I am getting the right version.
