The game itself is made of a cheap, thin plastic that easily bends when in use. The Hippos necks get consistently stuck in the "lunge" position and you need to stop the game to fix at least one Hippo during each round. In addition, the cheap, plastic marbles get stuck in the Hippos necks so they stop "eating" the marbles during the game unless you reach in and try to pry the marbles loose.
In order to set up the game you need to take each Hippo off of the bottom of the board and attach it to the top as everything is stored on the underside of the game. The effort that it takes to set up and store this game properly means that my 4 year old can't play it without my help. I can't imagine that the game will last much longer with any type of heavy use.
Yeah thats this toy.
The hippos get stuck to the point where the child CANNOT unlock the jaw from being clamped down. OR the whole hippo comes off the crappy board. Seriously its CRAP
We thought our kids lost 3 or 4 of the balls by the end of Xmas day. Nope! After hours of searching, we finally found them.... stuck inside the hippo's necks (see the two pics I uploaded on the product page). Really? 30 years of manufacturing this game and this never came up as a QA issue??? Again, lazy, lazy companies who want to sell you the cheapest products for the quickest buck.
Second, you CANNOT have the storage cap on the bottom while you play or the game wobbles (again, how did this ever pas QA?).
Granted, the kids love the game. If kids didn't, it wouldn't be around. But, please Hasbro, put a little effort into your brand. I'm really bothered by all the poor quality defects in half the games and toys we get for our kids nowadays. (See my Play-Doh Ice Cream factory review).
The product is CHEAP and too light weight. The board moves all over when you play because it doesn't have enough weight to it. Even the marbles are light weight plastic and go flying if you hit the dispensing lever too hard. The inside of the hippos does not have enough slope to make the light weight marble roll all the way through the hippo, so they get stuck up in the neck of the hippo.
You have to disassembled the game (remove all of the hippos) to fit it in the box provided which is SO impractical because my son will need to ask me to assemble it anytime he wants to play.
I wish I could get my 1980's version of this game back. You are better off finding an old version of this on eBay or at a garage sale than than buying this cheesy imitation of what once was a great game.
