"I purchased this Spongebob Pinata for my son's 1st birthday and it was the hit of the party! I filled it with 4 1/2 lbs. of candy. It was very sturdy and easy for the 1 & 2 yrs. old to pull. Even the older kids enjoyed it. When the magic ribbon was finally pulled, the candy easily dispensed. All the kid's eyes lit up when all the candy hit the floor. I was very pleased with this pinata and definitely recommend for young kids. I will buy again for my next party!!"
