THIS WAS A SUPER BIG HIT AT MY SON'S BIRTHDAY PARTY. SO CUTE IT WAS THE CENTER OF THE ROOM AND ALL THE KIDS LOVED IT. WE GOT A LOT OF CANDY IN IT AND IT WAS HARD TO BREAK. note: the hang tab came off right away.. NO PROBLEM we tied a rope from the hole the tab left to through the hole for candy and used the rope to hang it. then it was so sturdy. AWSOME

Entire order MUSTY & MOLDY
Ordered a bunch of items from the "carnival" theme (including this pinata) for my son's birthday party. Items were delivered smelling very musty and the paper/cardboard items actually had small mold specs on them. One item that I ordered was the treasure chest box that comes with toys. The treasure chest boxes sticky tape/glue was dried up and didn't work, so I had to staple and tape the box to assemble it.... This was my third time ordering from O.T.C. and I am not too pleased. I will likely give the company another chance in the future and hope that they shipped these damaged items to me unaware of the poor quality.

Afraid To Break It... Without A Stick
I ordered this for my daughters birthday party and I ordered it early just to make sure I had it. I also ordered the Pi¿¿ata Stick. Well I got them both and the stick is MUCH to big for this tiny pi¿¿ata. The ears don't seem to be on very well and I am afraid to take it out of the box with fear of breaking it before it gets to be used. Next year I will definitely be getting a store bought pi¿¿ata, its worth the money you pay.

Dont waste your money
This pinata is very ugly and small. there is hardly any room for candy. there wasn't even a hole in the back to put candy in we had to cut it open ourselves which made it look worse.

I purchases the elephant pinata along with many other carnival themed paper products. The elephant came smashed but oriental trading is sending a new one in time for the party. However, the elephant isnt very cute and they forgot to put a holein it for inserting candy. I guess we will see if the new one is in better shape. The other carnival stuff is really cute!!

Not a good deal.
Much smaller in reality than the picture, workmanship is very poor quality, ugly, ugly.

The pinata looks like a rhino. very unhappy with the quality it's packed full of paper and we couldn't fit hardly anything in it. When you start putting candy in it you almost ripped the tail off! I do not recommend this product.

Great color but was Small.
I bought this pinata for my son's 2nd Birthday "Circus Carnival" theme party but it was too small and was stuffed full of paper so I could only use it as a centerpiece. Oriental Trading did offer to send me another one free of charge but it would have been to late for the party.

Shipping w/OT is great & a day earlier than expected. Product however; very, very disappointing. Do not order this elephant unless you are planning to remake it. It has more of a resemblance to a rhino!! The trunk will need to be reworked, as will the tail...but for $15.99 it's still a good deal. You won't be able to fill it by removing the pre-placed fill-here sticker...it's crammed full of paper!!! I'd suggest cutting the under-belly to forcibly remove all of the paper ~ then fill. It's still cute though. I'll let you know what my Grand-Angels think of it, after their party next week.
