The Bottom Line:

My son and I enjoyed playing Hasbro’s Candy Land Wheel when he was a preschooler and would recommend it to other mommy’s with young children.


It’s that time of year that I clean out our game cabinet and get rid of games that we no longer player. With doing so, I found some games that I had never reviewed. One such game is Candy Land Wheel. My son received this as a gift about five years ago. It was a favorite of his when he was younger.
 
Candy Land Wheel is recommended for children three to six and requires two to four players to play. Candy Land Wheel is made by Hasbro. The object of the game is to be the first player to match all your cards.
 
Candy Land Wheel comes with two big dice, 48 Candy Land character cards, a cardboard dial, game board, push peg, label sheet and instructions.

Before playing for the first time you will need to remove the 48 character cards and dial from the cardboard. Place the dial face up on the game board and line up the holes. Put the push peg through the hole to hold the dial in place. Place the game board back in the box and set the box in the middle of the playing area. Apply the color labels to each die making sure that each die has one of each color.
 
Let’s Play

You will only be using one of the die. Place all the character cards face down. Each player should pick eight cards. Place the rest of the cards out of play. Flip up all your cards and place all the matching cards together.

The first player rolls the die. They then place their finger on the color space in the dial that matches the color on the die. They will turn the dial clockwise until their finger falls into the hole in the game board. Check to see at which character the arrow is pointing. If you have cards that match the character, you take all those cards and place them out of play. If you have two cards that match, both cards are put out of play. The next person then proceeds.

If you do not have any matching cards, your turn ends and the next players proceeds.

Continue playing until one player matches all their cards. That person is the winner.

You can also play an advanced version of the game. In this game each player takes twelve cards. The first person rolls both dice. They pick one of the colors and dial that color first. They try to make any matches. If they have a match they can only place one of the matches out of play. They then dial their next color and again try to make a match. After they have dialed both colors the next player proceeds. Again the player who matches all their cards is the winner.

My son received Candy Land Wheel as a gift so I am not sure what was paid for it but I have seen it online for around $10.00.
 
Candy Land Wheel promotes color recognition and matching skills but does not require reading or writing skills. My son enjoyed playing Candy Land Wheel as I think most preschoolers would. It is a fun game for them. I too enjoyed playing it as it was something different and it was helping my son learn.

We think Candy Land Wheel would make a great gift for any preschooler for their birthday or the holidays. I think it would also make a great addition to any preschool classroom.

The game itself is colorful and self contained. My son could take it anywhere. You do have to careful when playing since the dial is made of cardboard it could tear.

My son and I enjoyed playing Hasbro’s Candy Land Wheel when he was a preschooler and would recommend it to other mommy’s with young children.
