Hungry, Hungry Hippos Ride-On from Kid Trax

Company: Kid Trax
Available: Now
Price: $34.97 USD

The Hungry Hungry Hippos game is 40 years old, and toy manufacturer Kid Trax has partnered with Hasbro to release the Hungry Hungry Hippos Activity Ride-On.

The toy car is patterned after the original green Homer Hippo. As the ride-on is pushed or ridden, the hippo’s head moves up and down in a chomping motion, giving the illusion that Homer is eating seven coloured balls, which are then stored beneath the transparent seat. The toy is designed for children ages 1-3, with a 44-pound weight maximum.

The Hungry Hungry Hippos Activity Ride-On is available now for $34.97 USD, exclusively at Walmart and on
