Cool Vee - 1 month ago, Verified purchaser
My daughter and I love to play this game all the time we even try to bring Dad to play too. She's learning how to get the yellow ball. It also teaches great leadership skills and how to try to get motivated and positive at the same time. I highly recommend this game it's been around a very long time very inexpensive. Thank you Target 💳.

I bought this as a Christmas gift for my 4 year old with mild ADHD. It was a huge hit, he loves it and most importantly understands it. Now he wants the family to play every night!

Very poor quality. The mouths don’t open like they should. I thoroughly read the instructions on how to set it up( it’s very simple), but the mouths don’t work right. Would not recommend . Wish I could get a refund.

Super cheap quality. Will not survive the typical abuse of mashing the eat lever. Gets jammed easily. This is nothing like the build quality of the game from your childhood.

Callie - 3 months ago
Cheap. Levers and mouths constantly get stuck. Balls are cheap and lightweight so they go flying if hit just right. All cheap, lightweight plastic. Built NOTHING like the original. I would pay 4x the price to have a quality one from my childhood back.

Total garbage- what a disappointment! I had and loved this game as a kid. This trash doesn’t work as intended! Nothing about the functionality works well. Actually bought this last Christmas, played once with our child, and haven’t brought it out since- Going in the trash. Warning buyers this year!

I grew up loving this game. The problem with this version is the hippos are removable and the mouths don't open consistently. Press to hard, and your hippo comes loose. It works, but the quality of this "new" version is terrible compared to the red based version from the 80s. They don't make things like they used to :-/
