My first problem with this product occurred when I tried to stuff it with candy - there wasn't a trap door/opening! I carefully searched the entire pinata searching for a way to stuff the candy. In the end, I ended up cutting my own hole.
My second problem occurred while the kids were hitting it. The plastic loop came out of the pinata so there was no way for a rope to hold it up. As a solution we had the kids stand in a circle and kick the pinata. Not as fun, but the only thing we could do.

looks better than it looks...
Bought this pinata cause it went really well with my son's sports themed birthday. But after only a few hits, it fell to the ground because the attached loop broke away from the pinata. We had to tie a rope around it so the kids could continue to hit it. Other than that, the overall quality is good; took alot of hard hits to finally break it. Will purchase pinatas from OTC again.

Swing Batter Batter
Don't be afraid of this pinata breaking open early. After 3 rounds of 8 - 8 year olds swinging my husband and another Dad I had to tear it open. Most of the hard candy was broken in pieces. Buy small candy.
