"I chose this pinata for the Safety aspect of the strings to pull for a child's party. However, the Pinata isn't sturdy. When 4 kids pulled the string the base of Pinata just dropped to the floor and the top part was left hanging. Although the kids went ga-ga over the candy it was a big DISAPPOINTMENT TO THE PARENTS. I recommend a Parent holding the crown to let the kids pull the strings and enjoy the surprise !"
