"Purchased this pinata as an extra decoration piece for my daughters second birthday party. It is a beautiful piece and added a lot of fun. At the last minute we decided to use it as a regular pinata instead of the pull string. The only complaint is that the hook isnt very strong. We couldn't get the rope around it initially= after some work we got it tied up. After about 3 hits the hook broke. Luckily- we had someone there to fix it and got to finish the game."
