"Takes a long time to prep; cutting a hole in the bottom of the piñata then individually gluing strands of ribbons to the bottom and then trying to cover it with the tissue paper they supply. Says to put small amount of glue - I only put tiny end of toothpick on each with school/Elmers glue. When the first child pulled the ribbon, the whole thing came open. Followed directions carefully. The kids all thought it was a bust. Do not buy."
