Put vocabulary and imagination to the test with these word guessing riddles! The goal is to guess the answer, which will be two words that rhyme with each other.
The rules go as follows:
The first part of the riddle will consist of some variation of “Hink Pink,” such as “Hinky Pinky,” “Hinkity Pinkity,” etc., etc. This will determine the amount of syllables each of the two words need to have.
For example, “Hink Pink” means both words in the answer need to have one syllable each, “Hinky Pinky” means two, “Hinkity Pinkity” means three, and so on and so forth.
The second part of the riddle will be the clue as to what the two words will be.
For example, the answer to the riddle, “Hink Pink, a type of plant and a type of insect” would be “Tree, Bee.”

They are an exact rhyme, unless specified as a “Spicy Slant Rhyme.”
An exact rhyme would be like “patting, batting.”
