Candyland is a great board game for kids, my little one had this game for Christmas and sat around for hours playing it with three of her friends.

Considering how old it is, it's a great game.

Yes, I remember playing Candyland and Chutes and Ladders with my boys when they were young. Another good one is Hi Ho Cherrio, it's a counting game.
