I have had lots of fun introducing my girls to things I loved as a kid. I've put glow-in-dark stars on Sadie's ceiling, forced her to love Ariel, and have rocked out to the Best of Wee Sing while driving around town. Another one of the things I was excited to buy for the family was Hungry Hungry Hippos.
I bought the game and here is my review:
It took 20 minutes to put together and less than a minute to figure out I had wasted $17.49. The first disappointment is that you have to snap the hippos onto the board and take them off to fit the game back into the box. Second is that there aren't very many white marbles. The third and biggest downfall is that the hippos jam when you hit them. I barely had to push on my pink hippo before it would get stuck. It was frustrating because isn't the point of the game to be able to smash those hippos as fast as you can? I mean, that's how you win the game! If your hippo stops in the middle of the competition, where's the fun in that? This cheap version of the game is no where near as fun as the one I had when I was a kid. What a shame.
