This human version of Hungry Hungry Hippos is the game we should all be playing

This is how to make #TubeStrike day better

If today’s London tube strike has got you down, we’ve found the perfect antidote: real life Hungry Hungry Hippos. 


Forget the plastic game, this interactive version is so much better. In fact, if you’re working from home today, just ditch the spreadsheets and give this a whirl. 

You need a fair bit of kit: skateboards, balls, rope, washing baskets and some willing friends. Then it’s all about pairing up and wheeling your ‘hungry human’ into the middle of the circle to scoop up as many coloured balls as possible. Hours of fun.
