Hungry hungry nostalgia

When I was a kid, the commercials for Hungry Hungry Hippos entranced me. I longed to have my own hippos. Clearly it was the coolest game ever. I would play it at friends’ houses and marvel over it.

I have no idea if today’s kids find it similarly enrapturing (I suspect not, but who knows?), but right now Amazon has Hungry Hungry Hippos available for $18.97 with an available $5 off coupon to clip, making it just under $14, or their lowest price ever. Is that worth it for a bunch of marbles and plastic hippos for a kid who would probably rather play Angry Birds? Maybe not. But maybe you want one for yourself.

It’s okay. I won’t tell.
