What to fill your piñata with ...

The first thing you need to know is that piñatas are supplied empty, so it is up to you to add sweets & treats. Our favourite fillers are:
  • Sweets
  • Small toys & favours 
  • Confetti
  • Games &  puzzles
Of course if you decide to purchase a complete kit from our party shop, this will all be taken care of for you.

How to fill a piñata ...

It is so quick and simple! Each one has a white paper disk , push it in and you'll create a hole - insert the fillers!

Setting up your piñata ...

  1. Remove the white paper disk and fill with your desired treats
  2. Each piñata comes with a plastic hook, use some strong string to tie  this to
  3. Hang it somewhere it can swing freely - ideally outdoors
  4. Start playing!

How to play ...

  1. Wear a blindfold and take it turns to hit it with a stick or buster 
  2. As soon as it breaks, make a dash for the treats!
  3. Top tip: Since piñatas are quite strong, make sure that everyone gets to hit it a couple  of times before you move on to the next person

Pull piñatas ...

Developed for younger children who may struggle to use a buster. Pull on the ribbons to release the trapdoor and treats! Most have around 12 ribbons to pull on. For a party with a mixture of ages, simply tape it back up and let the older kids have a go with a buster!

Safety first ...

  • Keep everyone at a safe distance from the person hitting the piñata - around 15 feet should do it!
  • Make sure it has completely broken and spilled all its contents before the children make a dash for them
  • Don't go near the piñata until the person hitting it has stopped 

So now it's time to play!

 We have a fantastic range of classic and pull piñatas to choose from! 
Alternatively check out our complete ready made kits that contain a piñata, buster, blindfold and fillers!
