If only it existed. Paging Willy Wonka?
Seriously though, I was playing it at a bar last night, (– yes, I’m that cool :p), and I was FLOORED by the redesigned. Candyland is now not only making a somewhat laughable attempt to seem racially and ethnically aware
(Check out the ‘diverse’ child players on the bottom left from my Candyland board),
but they made Princess Frostine HYPER-sexualized and weird-looking!
Maybe it’s just because she’s on skates that I take such offense. Maybe it’s because I’m a woman. Maybe it’s because I’m not the audience for this product. Check out her evolution:
Here is one of just her:
She’s been shrunk. She’s been bent. She’s been given disproportionately small feet.
My pretty princess.
