n 1924, Parker Brothers produced a game for very young children. Reading skills aren't necessary to play Hickety Pickety, loosely based on the classic nursery rhyme. A child places his or her colored egg in the similarly-colored nest, based on the color indicated by a simple spinner. The game predates the much later Milton Bradley game Candy Land, also for the youngest children, which operates on a similar color recognition mechanic. Hickety Pickety endured through the 1960s, at least.
