Appalling quality - Hasbro should be ashamed!!
on 30 December 2012
Absolutely terrible quality. Flimsy cheap plastic. Fell to bits half way through each game. The straws are too short and not bendy enough. The centre part of the funnel does not fit corretly. The marbles jam in the middle when they fall. The top part does not sit correctly and the lid wobbles. In summary: Its virtually unplayable.
What a disgraceful disintergration of what used to be a fantastic family staple!
Simply put - its not worth the time and effort that it takes to set this up. The game is over usually because the equipment collapses or jams up. It takes all the fun out of playing/attempting to play.
I understand that times are tough - But the manufacturers have obviously used cheap materials and do not care about quality anymore. The old Ker-plunk would have lasted a lifetime. I do not think that this version should have been approved to pass quality standards.
Hasbro - SHAME ON YOU! You used to be one of the best. You no longer deserve that reputation.
If you buy this - be warned - You WILL regret it!!!
