My cousin had the game and we'd drive our parents nuts playing it. But it was so fun! Now that I have a kid I would NEVER buy it lol

This was my favorite game as a kid. My mom gave it away though to a little boy who had nothing. She could have given him any other game but this one. She replaced it for us a few years back. lol

I wanted this game so bad as a kid but never got it. I remember the kids in my class would sing "hungry hungry hippos" to the heavier kids. Poor kids. They probably have had to have a lot of professional help because of this game.

this was a great game in the short time i had it. my mother eventually got distressed by the noise, and into the garbage it went.

My favorite game as a child, and quite possibly one of my favorite toys altogether.

I'm 20 now, and as far back as I can remember this game has always been available for me to play at my grandparents house, which is where I reside at now. Probably 2-3 months back my 4 year old cousin had it out and I couldn't resist! Though I didn't really play it, I set the marbles in the dispenser and hit it as hard as I could launching the marble 6-7 inches in the air! Hahahahahaha. But my cousin caught on to that too. Man what a loud game though.

Yeah, my mom threw it out when she realized it was so noisy. And the one at school was pretty useless cuz there was only a handful of the original white marbles left.

God we had fun with this! It was loud as all get out but fun to play. My dad would play it with me. A round always seemed to get over too soon!

My father was a mold maker and made the mold for this game and Pass the Trash. He brought Hungry Hungry Hippos home from work with him for me, although it didn't get too much play, as I was an only child.

I had one of these, but most of the time I didn't have anyone to play with, so I had to just press two of the handles at once and pretend I was playing with someone else. Sometimes it sucked being an only child.

My mom swears we had this game when I bought it for my son last Christmas. We didn't have it. The boy behind me did and he never wanted to play it with me. He would tell me the little white balls were lost. I would suggest Trix or Cheerios in place of em, but he would never try it.

I remember this being the absolute loudest game ever. It was ridiculous.

How hard was it for all 4 kids to play at once-u were like on top of each other banging the heck out of the that white stick and with the vibration of that you pushed the white balls into another players' hippos mouth -- it was fun for like 5 mins HA!

I broke 3 of these things during intense games with my cousin when I was 3 and he was 4 and 5 he is 22 months older then me. I just got to excited and pressed two hard thus breaking the handle. The noise of thus batteryless toy would annoy any grown person.
