"back in my day..."

This is how I remember Candy Land:


I must be getting old because this is what I found at Target last week:
I wanted to get Candy Land for Anastasia since it was on sale for $4 at Target. I was so enraged when I saw a modernized, drugged up looking Candyland! Yuck. Then today I went to Walmart and saw a collectors edition of the Candy Land that I had as a kid and it was described as "Retro"!!!! I felt so old!!! Retro is the 1960's!!! Not the 1990's! I think I will dig through my parents game collection for my old game. They have modernized Carebears and Strawberry Shortcake too. What will they come up with next?

CANDY LAND WAS MY FAVORITE GAME!!! I was playing Candy Land back in the early 80s with my Mom! LOVED IT! I'll have to see what the Retro version looks like! I may have to pick it up for mysel...I mean, the kids!
