Junky construction

The thin plastic redesign of this game is terrible. The "marbles" are so light and are the exact size to risk a complete obstruction to a kid's windpipe. If you look at the photo, it easily shows the small tab that lets the hippo heads remain locked in the extended position. You have to pull the head forward while the lever is depressed to unlock the neck, which interrupts the game within 10 seconds of attempting to play every time we tried. It seems the manufacturer added that tab to all the hippos so that you save space when the disassembled game is stored in the box. Once the game is assembled, it doesn't fit back in the box for storage until you break it down into parts again. Although this is not too difficult, it does look like the thin edges to the plastic at the joints would easily fatigue and snap with repeated assembly/disassembly. The original game was immensely more durable. I wouldn't buy this version even on clearance after trying to play it. DISAPPOINTING!

a favorite!

I loved this game as a child and am so happy to be able to play it with my daughter now! it is a family favorite already. It's easy to play, but a tad bit loud at times. I also didnt realize you had to put it together, but it was easy to do.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

not as well made as when we were little

haven't bought it yet, but my son played it at a friend's house and it was a bit flimsy and made of crappy plastic. the marbles are no longer marbles, they are plastic balls.... so they don't roll around like they used to and very hard to catch. the hippo's head gets stuck a lot! of course, for a little kids it's still fun, but for the price, it's really not worth it.

my son still wants it, so i may wait til the holidays to try and get it on sale......

Hungry Hungry Hippos is a classic game

Growing up, my sister and I had this game and it was in a huge box and we easily lost all the marbles.  My cousins bought their nieces this game and the 3 year old was interested for about a minute and the 2 year old could care less.  My cousins (all in their 20s) ended up playing the game for a half hour.   After a few rounds of this game, it always ends with people just hitting the lever as hard as they can. 

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Hungry Hippos is great for preschoolers

I am always excited to find a game that our three year old can play with us. Hungry Hungry Hippos is definetly one she can play. It is so funny watching her pound on the poor game to get as many marbles as she can, she loves it. It is a easy stright forward game where no instructions, but having fun, have to be followed. She does beat us at this game quite often and gets so excited. I only wish their was better storage for the marbles.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Fun for the whole family

This game is great for getting the whole family involved in game time.  It is easy enough that preschool aged children can play along, all they have to do is tap down on the lever on their hippo, and he will stick out his neck and eat some balls.  Whoever has the most balls wins.  Fun game, but noisy!

I would recommend this product to a friend.
