This version of the Candy Land board game was released in 1984. It is famous for introducing characters into the Candy Land formula, as opposed to simply having locations placed on the board without any people, as in previous versions. These characters have since become a popular fixture of American and worldwide culture, appearing on everything from lunchboxes to napkins to coloring books. They have also been redesigned somewhat over the years, but the character designs introduced in the 1980s version are considered the most iconic.
