"Since we were ording the party kit from celebrateexpress.com we went ahead and ordered the pinata here also. It looks just like the picture and is of ok quality. Once you fill the pinata you cannot stand it up on its legs or it will collapse/break a leg off. The second child broke the hanging strap from its back, however, after having the total stuffing beat out of it! (no pun intended), it would NOT break! Its legs and tail came flying off, but no amount of beating broke this pinata open. We had to finally give up, fearing the candy was going to be completely wasted inside (and alot of it was), and rip it apart to get the candy out. Come to find out the pinata is made out of cardboard! We had teenagers beating on this thing and it would NOT break. It would be better converted to a pull-string pinata. The kids (and the adults) were getting quite frustrated."
