"This pinata looks great and is big enough to hold a ton of candy and small toys. However the thick cardboard construction (with cardboard beams in the inside center for reinforcement), made it nearly impossible for my 4 year old son to bust open. He had a blast trying though! In the end my husband had to hit it a couple times to get a hole started so my son could finish it off. It may be better suited for older kids who have a little more strength."
