Old School says:

I have an old school version with the red board. The 3 of the heads move out, but the jaws do not lift. Any advice on how to fix?
Allison says:

Denise, I had same problem. Put the hippo in place on the board, then press the head down flat, and the lever releases in the rear
Denise says:

I can't get the heads to move and don't want to force it in case it breaks What do I do
Kevin says:

This was the first game my daughter got really excited about and when her cousins came over they played it for about an hour (a long time in 3 year old land). The best part was there really were no rules so they didn't have to learn how to play other than start, stop, count your score and how to make your hippo bite. Love it!
