    Gets the job done…

    So fun that this childhood game that I grew up on is around now! It seems though that the quality of the game pieces is not as good as it was back in the day. The hippos mouths get stuck and don’t open to grab marbles causing MELTDOWNS for the kid using that particular hippo. When working well, it is a GREAT game for young kids as it teaches skills like color recognition, counting, patience, hand-eye coordination, and following rules, just to name a few. Despite the satisfactory quality that this game is made with, I would still recommend it for families as it is a great introduction to board games.

    Great game but quality is lacking.

    The concept of the game is great, especially for kids.

    The quality isn’t that great, the hippos seems fragile. The leavers stick and sometimes the heads don’t lift up to eat. For a game that requires that hippos to be pushed down to play they don’t move that great. This is just after a few games played.

    I’d be willing to pay more if the quality was better.

    Fun for all ages

    We love this game! I have 3 kids that are 3,8 and 11 so sometimes game night means not everyone can play. This game they can all take part in ands have a blast trying to beat each other! It’s bit the most sturdy. My 3 year old broke one of the hippos the first time playing but we made it work with the other hippos.

    Fun game

    Hungry Hungry Hippos is a classic well known game that has been around for a long time. It’s a lot of fun and a great family game. However, this version they make now is cheaply made. The marbles are a hollow plastic and the Hippos hand lever stick sometimes. Almost feels like they are going to break. To store you have to take the whole game apart which can be time consuming. Regardless on the way it’s made it’s still a lot of fun and my family enjoys playing.
