EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

Fizzy Dizzy Hippo is a 2-4 player children's suspenseful game for ages 4 and up. Easy to play, players take turns spinning the hippo's fizzy drink umbrella then pressing on the hippo's can the number of times shown on the umbrella. As they press, his belly grows, eventually causing it to pop - and causing him to spin in circles and let out a loud burp. The player who caused his belly to pop wins that round. Win three rounds to win the game. Beach sounds of seagulls, and the hippo slurping his drink can be heard throughout game play. Two AAA batteries are required, as is some adult assembly but we found it simple to do in just a few minutes. 

Is It Fun?

There have been a lot of suspenseful games on the market the past few years that incorporate the element of surprise. This is one of those games though the results are usually messier ones you want to avoid. Fizzy Dippy Hippo is just silly fun that has a bit of the gross out factor in the form of belching but it's not terribly offensive. It's very easy to learn and play.

What To Be Aware Of

Fizzy Dippy Hippo is just silly fun that has a bit of the gross out factor in the form of belching but it's not terribly offensive. Most kids will find it hysterical though some adults may not want their kids playing for fear of them mimicking the Hippo's burping behavior. We found it pretty harmless though. Two AAA batteries are required, and not included. Some adult assembly is necessary but we found it easy to do in just a few minutes.
