"I bought this piñata along with the pull string kit. It is very cute and made of thick cardboard however it doesn't really lend itself to being a pull string piñata. There is a solid layer of cardboard that separates the top from there the "track" part is on the bottom. This is a problem because the candy stays in the top half (where the trap door is to load it). I ended up putting the candy in the bottom where I put the trap door for the pull string kit. It works but not much fits. Kind of a pain."
