“Dandy Candy,” a “Built-Rite Toy,” parades anthropomorphic junk food before its young audience. Pies, cakes, candy canes, gum drops, and other sugary citizens laugh and frolic before jagged pastel backgrounds.
I suppose the idea is to encourage children to up their sugar intake. I had no interest in sweets as a kid; my family, of course, was appalled, and warned me that I was endangering my health, but I wouldn’t get with the program. Grown to maturity, I still don’t see the point of this stuff. Maybe if I had this game to teach me, I would have learned my lesson. And maybe not.
