"Yes, I read the reviews before purchasing and still bought them. If you have a lot of time and a good bit of energy you can probably alter them, but I decided to go to the dollar store and buy real hats made from foam instead. THESE HATS DO NOT STAY ON!!! Save your money."
"I wasn't sure about purchasing one online, but thought I would give it a try this year and I'm so glad I did! I was worried that it would be too small, but I managed to put about 6lbs worth of toys and candy in it. When the weather turned rainy, we opted not to break the pinata in the house and save it for another party, which meant I had to unload the bounty. Not a problem, just a bit time consuming. This pinata is truly a work of art."
"I read some of the others reviews before purchasing and knew I had a 50/50 chance on getting a "good" one. The pistol looks amazing! Very cool detail (except maybe the bright orange rim at the end of the barrel.) The one we received shoots far and for a good bit of time. Some of the other reviews claimed that it didn't shoot for very long, however, I found that I had to shake the pistol while filling it, to get the water into the entire chamber. Well worth the money!"
"Although the price is about average for this size balloon, it was still well worth the money. Great hit at the party. The balloon is very tall and well made. We purchased online and brought it to Publix to have it filled (for fee.)"
