There's a rumble in the jungle with these Hungry Hippos. All the hippos love to munch on marbles... they just can't get enough. But which hippo's the hungriest? See which hippo gobbles the most in this feeding frenzy. Hungry Hippos is a great children's game for a rainy day.
Four hippos, 20 marbles and only one aim--what's not to like? A hilarious way to develop your pre-schooler's hand-eye coordination. Start with one marble in the middle for the littlest players and then add more and more as their skills improve. Of course, for older players and long-time devotees of the game you can always just chuck all the marbles in the middle, engage in a spot of fast and furious fun and see whose Hippo can eat the most.
The frantic marble-munching action game. Gobble up as many marbles as possible. The faster you press their tails, the more marbles they try to chomp. If your hippo gobbles the most, you win.

I dug this out of the loft the other week when sorting through my old toys. I engaged my 5 year old nephew in a game when his mum brought him over. It brought the memories flooding back to when my sister and I played it, with the problem of the balls flying off the gaming arena due to the frantic pounding of the levers still occuring in 2010!
To its credit, Hungry Hippos is a very sturdy game, it can take a hell of a pounding and survive.
If you've got some little people with lots of energy to burn, then sit them around Hungry Hippos, just make sure you have some ear plugs on standby!
Basically the box is the same size as the blue square play arena so when you put it all together with the hippos bottoms sticking out it no longer fits in the box. It is not as if it comes apart easily, in fact i gave up trying for fear of snapping something. So we are left with a game containing small balls sitting loose in the cupboard - need I say more!
very silly design, leading to iminent loss of marbles for the game and for parents!
Found at Amazon on first visit with all requirements met. I saved time and effort and I was very pleased. The game was delivered within two working days.
Tracking available from Amazon of your purchase is another added bonus.
Very good toy for kids and for adults to join in and show their competitive side.
adored by my 3 year old son, probably because of the incredible noise created. Yes we have lost some marbles in the process but this is inevitable and still works with similar sized replacements.
not especially educational, the most you could manage is simple maths and colour recognition along with some dexterity to release the marbles using the button.
no it doesnt go back in the box without dismantling it each time so we have ditched the box and just keep the remaining marbles secure in a little bag.
My son would probably play it for hours but the noise means its usually only a few quick games!
