We own a closet full of games, but the "Curious George Match-a-Balloon Game" was a favorite of Ryan, Dylan, and now Lauryn.
We received it as a hand-me-down, and I can't find it for sale anywhere online or at the store. If I could, it would become something I stocked up on to give to wee ones as birthday presents. No reading or counting required; just roll the dice and match colors.
Dylan has a great time "teaching" Lauryn her colors while they play.
Who doesn't love Curious George? The images on the game board pieces are delightful. I don't use that word, delightful, in real life, but it seemed okay here.
I love your Haiku on Rocks In My Dryer! i give an amen to that one (and my vote if you get in the top 4!)
have a great day!

I remember our kids playing that game together on our little vacation in Ark a year or so ago. I even looked for it on ebay when we got home because my kids liked it so much. Maybe we should write to the makers of it and ask them to re-release it.
My mother-in-law bought Wyatt a game very similar to that one at the Apple Tree in Tulsa. They might not have the Curious George one, but you can browse the games at www.appletreeinc.com I think most are $9.99 and Wyatt loves his color game. I do agree that sometimes simple is MUCH better! Good luck.
