"that way kids aren't flinging a baseball bat or other unsafe object around. this pinata buster survived 7 or 8 kids, ages 2 to 7, taking whacks at the pinata, and we got through the line four times before the pinata started to break. we saved it for future parties so should get the $5 worth out of it!"
"This worked out great for us. we had kids from age 2 to 7 whacking this. there were 7 or 8 kids in the line and we went through it four times before the pinata started to break, then a couple more kids hit it to finally crack it open. perfect! we stuffed it full of smarties, dum dums and starbursts--it held a LOT. my son was thrilled to have a guitar pinata (hard to find one that isn't hannah montana)"
