How about simple staple removers that are in color? The only ones I can find are black or brown. I'm not looking for fancy, just the claw type in colors.

Glad to help, Judy! There are actually a few choices - although it seems you won't find them at the big box office supply stores. Let's start out with the ones from Baumgartens.
Baumgartens also has a mini staple remover available in assorted colors - it doesn't appear that you can choose your color.
Here's another pink staple remover - it has three prongs rather than the normal two. I'm not finding it on the company's web site, though; I hope that doesn't mean it's discontinued. Update on July 11, 2011: I found it on the company's web site — and it has indeed been discontinued. And the site I saw that was still selling it before no longer has it.
Marbig, a brand that's part of ACCO Australia, also has staple removers in colors. They are sold by the Australian sites Stationery World and OkOffice. It doesn't appear that you can pick which color you get.
The Charles Leonard staple remover is yet another option, in "assorted colors."
And finally, there's the X-ACTO staple remover, available from a number of online vendors.
