Hungry Hungry Hippos Review (Hasbro)

What It Is

Hungry Hungry Hippos is part of Hasbro's Elefun and Friends game line and an updated version of a go-to classic preschool game. Start the game by placing all 20 marbles into the marble slots around the game's center "pond." Then launch all the marbles into the pond and have a player yell "Go!" to start the marble chomping fun. The game ends when no marbles remain in the center. The player with the most marbles wins.

Older fans may find a few hippos have been traded out over the years and the latest hippo characters include Veggie Potamus, Bottomless Potamus, Sweetie Potamus, and Hungry Hippo.

Is It Fun?

This is a fun and fast-paced game that is super easy to play and a game that is fun for the whole family. As a fast-paced marble eating game, the more players you play with the faster the gameplay and the more fun it is.

Who It’s For

Hungry Hungry Hippos is for ages 4 and up.

What To Be Aware Of

You can always switch up the gameplay for two players and have each be charged with two hippos for double the fun.

The game also features a single yellow marble, which you can also play as the "automatic win" game piece.
