Candy Land in Real Life

To celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Hasbro game Candy Land, a very crooked street in San Francisco was transformed into a life-sized game board today.

Transforming Lombard Street is no easy task, and crews were working before dawn to prepare the winding road. Eight to ten children from the local Children’s Hospital were invited to participate in the game.

Candy Land was created by Eleanor Abbott in 1949 to entertain and educate children suffering from Polio and the long hospitalization it required. Since the game only requires basic counting skills, it was one of the first board games created for very young children.
