"I purchased this pinata for my son's "soldier" themed 4th birthday party. I filled it with army men and treats, and it withstood the weight quite easily. It was extremely cute and durable.....after 10 minutes we had to take it down and rip it open! but the kids were only 4 years old, and not hitting very hard. The price is reasonable and the product is well made. I am buying from this site for every party need I may have!"
