Hungry Hippos by MB games. Another one of MB Games (or otherwise known as Milton Bradley) board games and it has been around for years. MB makes lots of board games, they began in the mid-1800s and have been making games almost constantly since. I remember seeing the adverts for Hungry Hippos as a kid and it always looked so appealing. I tend to always buy at least one board game every Christmas, just a tradition we have gotten into, and this is among our growing collection. I have to admit that this is not one of my favourite game, as it just seems so pointless to me but both my sons seem to like it, not that my youngest of two and a ... Read the complete review

When I was a kid, this was a game that I always wanted but for some reason my parents would never get for us. I was never sure why really until I became an adult myself and we were bought it as a family gift for us all to play. At the time my youngest was 19 months old, which was too young really, but we got it out to play with the people who bought it for us, and it seemed to be a hit, so we decided that it would be a game we could play under close supervision only. The game is a simple concept. Balls are released into the central part of the board by pressing a small lever. Each player has 5 balls at the start to release, which are a bit smaller ...

If ever there was a game that could transport me back to my childhood, then this is it. Hungry Hippos. Many an hour I whiled away fighting with my siblings over who was what hippo and who was cheating.... So, when I saw it in my local branch of The Entertainer quite recently, I had to purchase to play with my nieces and nephews when they visit. The game cost me £11.20 and is for ages four plus. THE GAME The game board is simple, as is the game. You are provided with a thick plastic board, on which sit four different coloured hippos - pink, yellow, green and orange. Well, you are provided with the board and four hippo attachments and four ... Read the complete review

Sometimes, it's the simplest of games that stand the test of time. I vividly remember playign hungry Hippos with my brother when we were kids, sitting in our parents' front room bashing the handle as hard as we could and as fast as we could with no finesse whatsoever to try and capture as many little plastic balls as possible. It must have made a right racket, and driven our parents bonkers! I seriously think that those who create games deliberately try and think of things that are going to make as much noise as possible. I know I would have done, given half the chance, when I was younger. Now, though, with two little boys in the house, I know the true value ... Read the complete review

We have a good selection of games in our house, due to us having a six year old son. One of my favourites to play with him though is hungry hippos. This is a classic game which has been around for years, but is still as popular with children nowadays as it was a few years ago. The concept of this game is simple. There are four plastic hippos attached to a plastic base. Each hippo has its own lever which is controlled by the player and opens and shuts the hippos mouth. Within the game you get a supply of small plastic balls which you place in the centre of the base before you start the game. You frantically press your lever when the game starts to open and ...
