Harry the Hungry Hippo

Toy maker Hasbro has reinvented Hungry Hippos – with a special new version of the game featuring Harry Redknapp.

Instead of Hippos, each player has a Harry to control – a choice of either Happy Hammer Harry, Pompey Harry, Saint Harry or Harry Hotspur.

Coloured marbles will have the faces of footballers on them – and each player has to use their Harry to get as many ‘footballers’ into their ‘squad’ as possible. The player with the biggest squad wins.

When asked about his feelings regarding having his name linked with Hungry Hippos, Redknapp said, “Yeah – Hippos – good boy, good player – strong, fast – good technique – he’s definitely somebody we’re ‘avin’ a look at – but we’ll just ‘ave to wait and see”.
