Classic childrens board games?

I was hoping to find games like Chutes and Ladders, Candyland, and other classic childrens board games, but I'm not having much luck.

I found some more generic games like Snakes and Ladders as opposed to Chutes and Ladders, for example. Also, can't even find a generic version of Candyland. When I search, all I find are candy crush rip-offs.

Do the official games not have apps? If not, that's very surprising.

(Sorry, I didn't mean to post this on the wrong board. Can someone move it to the correct board?)

I thought Chutes and Ladders was just the American name fore Snakes and Ladders.

Well in the Milton Bradley version of Chutes and Ladders, the snakes are replaced with Chutes. Also, the board itself is designed to be more kid-friendly.

There was an app that had a small collection of classic board games like Snakes & Ladders, Backgammon etc. but it looks like it is long gone from the app store.
