My beef with this toy is that it appears no one at the manufacturer bothered to play-test it. The lightweight plastic pellets go flying everywhere (you can't call 'em marbles anymore), the hippos get stuck or they fall off during play, and you can count on a plastic piece eventually breaking off or cracking, leaving you with crying children and extremely disappointed adults. (However, there IS satisfaction to be had after it breaks...go outside, place it in the driveway and stomp on it until it's reduced to nothing more than itty-bitty colored plastic pieces. Great for getting out the aggression this crappy toy provokes!)
Forget this rubbish, you're better off getting an original. Thank goodness for eBay, second-hand stores, and flea markets. Happy hunting!
This was a christmas gift for my kids (4 & 5)
and even though they play with it (rarely), it gets
frustrating when the hippos constantly fall off. And
when you wack the hippo a few times, it gets stuck and
won't open to accept the marbles. Definatly not worth
the money. Too bad they don't make it like they did a
This game was at the top of my daughter's list for christmas last year, and she did receive it. When I saw how small the box was, I almost thought her grandfather purchased the wrong game. It is definitely not made the same way it was back when I was a child. Back then the board was all one piece, and made of a harder plastic. We even added our own marbles to the game and it held up quite well even with the extras. The game now, barely stays together, it comes in parts that have to be assembled and taken apart each time you play. The hippos get stuck and you have to stop the entire game to fix it or else someone will get hurt trying to fix it or they get left out if they let it go.
I am extremely let down by how milton bradley has cheapened this product, and I feel its definitely not worth spending your money on.
I would never, ever recommend this game to be purchased by anyone. I just don't understand it. What happened to the Hippos?
The game itself is easy to play, makes a good amount of noise (as the hippo heads knock the plastic) and entertains for long periods of time. It's a silly game, but it does promote counting marbles to see who wins.
This games provides a great release for toddlers and adults. Because of the intensity and noisy pounding, you may want to limit your own play to about ½ hour. Educational value? Well, the game helps with hand-eye coordination, learning how to be a good sport, and simple counting. But basically it's just a good way to get in touch with your inner hippo--let the pounding begin!

I loved this game as a kid. We were NOT gentle with it, but it held up just fine. The current version is so poorly made that it is practically unusable. Read morePublished 18 months ago by Michael Phipps
