About Pinatas

A pnata is a decorated container filled with goodies (candy, party favors, etc.) of some kind. During a party or celebration a pinata is hung a short ways off the ground, and the party guests, usually children, take turns being blindfolded and trying to hit it with a stick or something similar. When someone finally hits the pinata hard enough it breaks open, spilling the goodies inside for everyone to pick up and enjoy.

Hitting a pinata with a stick is the traditional way of breaking it open and is still common today. However, you can also find pinatas that release their goodies by pulling a string: These pinatas have several strings hanging from them and party guests takes turns pulling one string at a time. When the correct string is pulled, the pinata releases its goodies.

Pinatas are typically made of lightweight material that is not too durable so they can be broken open when hit firmly with a stick. Common construction materials include paper mache and cardboard. Pinatas are often made in shapes to accent the theme of the party or celebration they'll be used at. For example, a cowboy or Western-themed party might have a pinata in the shape of a cowboy, a cowboy boot or hat, a horse or bull, etc. However, a pinata can come in virtually any shape.
