Sweets for the Sweet

In 1948, Ms. Eleanor Abbott was recovering from polio in the hospital. There she created a board game for small children called CANDYLAND. It is a simple race-to-the-finish game for those who cannot read or count. A very Rhino sort of game.

The game has proven a great success over the years, albeit with a junior audience. Those of Us without reading or counting skills still have our Influence. Hooray for Us!
