A tried-and-true birthday party tradition gets an eye-catching makeover, thanks to the master crafters who sell their wares at Etsy. These 12 piñatas will make a seriously stylish addition to your child's party decor — at least until it's time to destroy them! From Dora the Explorer to Thomas the Tank Engine, check out some of the prettiest piñatas out there.
Treasure-packed pinatas are a staple at sunny summery birthdays in the park, but whacking beloved characters or animals with faces can make some children (and their parents) uneasy. If your crowd has outgrown the toddler-friendly pull pinatas and is old enough to wield a big stick, consider a colorful custom-made pinata from Etsy that's more appetizing than anthropomorphic. They're less expensive than licensed character pinatas and a world more creative. Here's a peek at some of my favorites this season.
Last year, I focused on birdie piñatas, but it's a dog's day today with these cute creatures. Now, anyone with a canine knows an actual piñata plus pooch is a recipe for disaster (and a trip to the vet's office), these are plush toys ($10, small or $15, large) filled with yummy pet-safe snacks.
North loved his Puppy Piñata – he knew there were yums inside – and broke it open in no time! Even if you're ordering today and celebrating a lil late, trust me, your pet won't know the fifth of May from the fifteenth with snacks involved!
Birds love to peek and peck to find their treats so what better way to let them celebrate today's holiday than with piñatas for our feathered friends! Made of natural, nontoxic, and biodegradable materials, the fun, fruit-filled shapes let animals get a special treat and an educational experience in the process. While these stimulating toys can be offered year-round (obvs), I gathered some of my fave shapes in a widget below to honor the day – olé! Check 'em all out when you read more
