plastic marbles, er, I mean balls really?????
It is not one continious baord like the old origional but you "slide" the hippos into place. Which makes them flimsy while trying to play the game, becuase they will shift and make the "board uneven.
I can even tell it is much smaller than the origional, and the hippos had a tendency to get stuck while extended out with thier mouths open. And this was all noticeable the first time we took it out of the box.
It truly is made of the cheapest plastic and the hippos heads/necks get stuck frequently which is extremely frustrating for the kids and adults alike. But worst of all once the game is assembled it DOESN'T FIT INTO THE BOX!!! Who sells a board game that can't be stored in the box in which it comes?? Ridiculous! Of course the box does suggest that you disassemble the hippos from the game board in order to store it, however I have been unable to get them back out and am afraid to force them since the plastic is so flimsy I am sure it will break.
If I had read the reviews before purchasing this game I would have talked my daughter into asking for something else. It's a real shame because the original version that I had from the 1970's was so sturdy that my family passed it down over the years and was still playing with it up until just a few years ago. I'll be surprised if thi game lasts more than 1 year. I guess it is just another sad example of how we have lowered our standards and expectations over the years. So sad.

Very cheap and very disappointing. The game board does not sit flat, and the marbles are plastic, making them too light for the rigorous play kids do. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Amazon Customer
