Took a chance and am glad we did
on June 17, 2017
I was EXTREMELY hesitant to buy this after reading even just a handful of reviews, but decided to take a chance since my 5 year-old has wanted this for years after playing it at a friend's. It all went together well, I was expecting it to be flimsier based on what I read, so was actually pleasantly surprised on its quality. We all played this for an entire evening and then the two kids- 5 and 8- kept playing with it for the rest of the weekend. And they were really rough on it, pounding on the hippos, launching the balls, etc. I finally had to put it away and while that process was more extensive than it should be, it all came apart just fine. I may be one of the few, but I'm really happy with it. Make sure you read the instructions, the necks lock intentionally for storage and if you overfill a ball reservoir you'll get one stuck up in the hippo's neck.
