Made mostly from newspaper and paper mache paste, today's pinatas have bright tissue paper decorating the exterior while filled with candy and toy favors on the inside. A Pinata Buster, or bat, is used by a blindfolded contestant to break the pinata open exposing the candy to the crowd that's standing by in anticipation.

Pull-string pinatas and the pull-string pinata game came around as a safer game for the younger kids to enjoy. The pull-0string pinata has multiple string hanging down beneath the pinata, which to is suspended up high from a tree or pole. The object is to allow the kids to run all in at one time trying to pull the one string that is mounted to a trap door. Pulling the right string means opening the trap door and spilling out the candy filling that's inside. Click here to view our pull-string pinatas.

Our pinata artisans came up "Portrait Pinatas" back in '03 to meet the needs of our customers.
