Piñatas have been included in many types of celebrations dating back tens of thousands of years ago in Chinese and Spanish cultures. They are constructed in colorful designs and characters and made of materials that are easy to break. Once filled with treats and toys, piñatas are suspended at arms-length for blindfolded youngsters – as well as the young at heart – to take turns striking them with sticks to send the goodies inside spilling to the ground, resulting in a rush of excitement. Modern pinatas are available in almost countless designs, and are constructed of materials like cardboard and paper. Most can hold several pounds of candy, toys, and other surprises, and make great additions to all types of celebrations, from birthday parties to weddings and more.
