Editor's Notes

July 25, 2019:

The best thing about this list of piñatas is the variety. We've picked out options that are great for parties for kids, in addition to decorations that are well-suited to events geared toward grownups. It's important to note, however, that children must always be supervised around piñatas, as the act of whacking a piñata open is inherently dangerous, and the prizes and candies within can pose a choking hazard to especially young children.

The Pirate Treasure Chest, Ya Otta T-Rex, Unique Butterfly, Aztec Imports Motorcycle, Unique Industries SpongeBob SquarePants, and Unique Unicorn have all been removed due to quality and availability issues. In their place, the Ya Otta Piñata Unicorn, TexMex Fun Stuff Mexican Star, S&S Worldwide Treasure Chest, Juvale Diamond Ring, Aurabeam Loot Llama, and Juvale Comic Superhero have been added to the list.

4. Unique Despicable Me Minion

5. S&S Worldwide Treasure Chest

6. Ya Otta Piñata Fierce Bull

7. Unique Tiki

8. Juvale Diamond Ring

9. Aurabeam Loot Llama

10. Fun Express Superhero
