This review is from: Gobble & Go Hippo (Toy)
Before you buy this though, ask yourself: do I want to encourage my crawler who already gets into everything to be even more mobile? Really, shouldn't we be doing everything we can to keep those kids as immobile as possible? I don't know about you but the keep-up-with-your-toddler exercise plan is wiping me out. Our 9 month old daughter was already pretty mobile but had just started to cruise and wasn't great at it. Well along comes Mr. Hippo and forget it. She's toddling all over the place now and it's only a month later. At first he was a little too fast for her but now she can keep up. Our dogs go running when they hear old gobble-and-go clipping across the floor heading straight their way.

On the "gobble" topic. He doesn't exactly gobble that well, it's true. The mechanism that pushes the blocks from his "mouth" to his middle is very soft and turns very loosely so sometimes the blocks just sit against it in his "mouth". Hey, that's okay. If your kid is like mine and loves shoving her hands anywhere and everywhere at least you don't have to worry that they'll be "gobbled" or pinched or whatever.

Overall though, he's one sturdy little hippo. He's been rammed into furniture, and into aforementioned pets repeatedly (not repeatedly into the pets though, as I said, they learned to flee early on) with no damage. So if you really want to help that little mover and shaker to move even more, go for it.
