When I was a kid, this was a game that I always wanted but for some reason my parents would never get for us. I was never sure why really until I became an adult myself and we were bought it as a family gift for us all to play. At the time my youngest was 19 months old, which was too young really...

ProFun game for all ages

ContraNoisy, small parts, doesn't fit in box when set up

Hungry Hippos is yet another classic game that I have fond childhood memories of and is still on the shelves today. I recently brought the game for my daughter and was suprised at how little it has actually changed. The game is set out on a plastic, red, square shaped base and has 4 different...

Contralose balls, games don't last long

One of my first memories of having a friend when I was little involves playing this game. I can have only been around 4 or 5 at the time and I remember being at his house and he had this game. I had fond memories of this game so when the opportunity came for me to add it to my son’s ever...

ProFun for a long time

ContraCan be noisy but I like that

I am going to be honest here – my hubby begged me to buy this game for my little boy (who is 3½) last Christmas but I knew it was for him. He may have tried to give me all the flannel about what a fun toy it was and how Charlie would love it – all of which is true – but I knew – he wanted it and...

I own the MB games edition of Hungry Hippos, it was bought for me on my 18th birthday but I also owned it as a child. It is a classic game that everyone has heard of and that most people have played.
