"I ordered a pack of these to use as centerpieces on the tables since I used the hard hats as party hats. Cute but needed to be assembled. May need tape to hold together. Worked great as centerpieces."

Title: Don't Waste Money
Date:January 24, 2011
"Bought these for the party favor boxes. They looked cute and sounded cute but were made really poorly. Cheap, chinsey, and the truck with the lift part (the lift falls off with the lightest touch). I would recommend buying a ten pack of hot wheels or something. Don't waste money on these - really not worth it."
"Bought this for my sons 3rd birthday. He was absolutely elated about it! Only thing I didn't like was I bought a pull string kit to use on it but no where in the description did it say anything about not being compatible due to this pinata filling on the top instead of bottom. So dont waste money on a pull string kit like I did. Just buy a stick. I let the youngest kids go first and the older kids last. The older children (aged 5-8) had no problem wacking that thing down. We actually tied it back together twice so all the kids had a chance to hit it. We saved it and its in my son's room."
"Do not purchase the pull string kit if you plan to use it on the dumptruck pinata. It does not work correctly since you fill the pinata from the top and not the bottom. Was disappointed I wasted money on these strings. Nowhere did it mention that it wouldnt work on the pinata I purchased from them. They also mailed me two so now I have 2 string kits that I will probably Never ever use. Just get a stick!"
"I liked this foil balloon. Had pictures on both sides. Matched the party theme. Only complaint... the side with the backhoe - the backhoe should be positioned differently because the front arm/scooper part looks weird right in front of the machine. I had to look at it for a minute before realizing what it was. Almost looks like an old inkwell and pen."
"I ordered this shirt for my son for his 3rd birthday. I thought it was really cute and really matched the theme of the party. The shirt was made very wide and short in length. I was thankful I ordered a size bigger than he wears or it may have been too short."
"I bought these as party hats for my son's 3rd bday. I didn't realize how chinsy they are before I purchased them. The kids didn't really seem to notice though. They serve the purpose but I think they could be a little better quality personally. I have seen other companies offer similar versions for about the same price and they look to be a lil better."
"I order a banner every year for my son's birthday. This is the first year (he just turned 3) that we have had a banner with his photo on it. He thought that was the coolest thing when I showed him the banner. I got tons of compliments from the party guests and everyone wanted to know where I got it. The banner is very sturdy and made durable. This banner should last forever really. I plan to hang this in his room or playroom. The only negative I have to say is that I found it difficult when creating the banner online. The picture doesnt move as your moving it on the screen. You have to wait for the screen to reload before seeing where your photo is lined up. And when I finally got it placed right I did double check to make sure it was correct, and the stinking thing moved the picture completely and I had to spend another 15 minutes trying to place the photo again! I would suggest they fix that but other than that - great product, great value, great quality."
