"I bought this pinata for my daughter's 5th birthday. She had a luau themed party and this pinata was perfect. It matched the theme and had plenty of room available for toys and candy. We used a regular baseball bat to hit it, and the pinata lasted through a whole line of kids. The pinata split clean in half instead of just a little hole. The kids loved that the candy flew everywhere. Overall this pinata was sturdy and roomy."
