Toy Artist Turns “Hungry Hungry Hippos” Into “Hungry Hungry Koopas”


A toy maker with a love for turning video games’ finest into twisted creations has given a new spin to a classic board game.

Donald Kennedy of El Paso, Texas, aka KodyKoala, took a simple “Hungry Hungry Hippos” game and gave it a unique Super Mario Bros. twist.

“Hungry Hungry Koopas” takes four members of the evil Koopa family and pits them against each other in a battle to eat the most marbles.

Not only did he refashion the hippos into the Koopas but he also gave the toy toy a makeover as well. The outer shell of the game has a slick castle wall style look and the playing field has been transformed into a red and orange lava pit.

The coolest part is that you’ll be able to own it. Kennedy announced that he will sell the game at the El Paso Comic Con starting on Sept. 14 and then on his website if no one picks it up in person.
