This is the version I'm looking for of Hungry Hungry Hippos. Made by Milton Bradley its one solid piece.
This is the one readily available made by Hasbro that is a piece of junk in a small box. You have to assemble the game. It has bad reviews.
The annoying thing is some stores use the MB image. So far only FAO Shwartz in NY has it in stock. Used older versions on ebay are going for a pretty penny.
So...if you happen to be out and about and see the MB version the 4 year old great nephew wants it VERY VERY much. I'll pay you plus express shipping.
