Candy Land (1955)

Company: Hasbro

Board games like Sorry! and Monopoly have been a childhood staple for decades, and while new variations of these games continue to be introduced, the basic ones endure.

The collection FAO Schwarz has assembled includes a first edition of Sorry!, which was published by Parker Brothers in 1934, and Candy Land, which was created in 1949. A 1935 edition of Monopoly and a 1967 version of Battleship also can be viewed.

This copy of Candy Land shows the game was introduced with color spots and cards. The characters that mark a player’s progress were introduced later.
