"This pinata looked good & was well made. I would suggest having the kids pull all the strings at once though instead of one at a time. The bottom was too tough to open with the force of one string at a time, so in the end we still had to bust it open with a stick. I was trying to avoid that; it was the whole reason we bought a "pull string" pinata in the first place. Even still, I'd say it was a nice product; I would recommend it."
