    My son (3years old) loved this. It takes some craftiness to add the ribbon kit and the extra crepe paper that comes with the kit to hide the ribbon ends is yellow. Not so deceptive considering the shark is white and blue. I found a way to hide them under the existing paper and it worked out well. We will hang this in my sons room for a while so he can enjoy it.

    Great for Decor...but too small!

    The shark pinata was pretty cool. The quality was also good, but they are too small. We bought two. Good size for about 10 kids or less.

    Comments:

    Ok, we had "fins to the left, fins to the right" with our Jimmy Buffett party. Thought this shark piñata would be a cool decoration and fun for the kids. The only problem was the conversion kit. The first thing it says on the instructions was that it was for use with flat-bottomed piñatas. The shark was V-shaped. That made it difficult to cut the flap in the bottom. After getting that part done, the instructions said to place the ribbons at random points on the shark. Easy enough. Now hide the ribbon ends with the tissue provided. The shark's belly is white. The tissue is blue. Not a good match. But I had some white and it didn't take much to cover the ribbon ends. I liked the suggestion that a piece of candy be tied to each of the ribbons. Despite the little challenges, it is a great shark and got lots of compliments.

    The product was great and worked well for our party of 14 1st graders. Pasting the strings on and getting the product ready definitely took time, but the kids loved it and we all had a wonderful time.

                The pinata was perfect for my son's shark-themed birthday party. It was easy to fill (we did the traditional pinata, but I was happy to have the option to convert it to a pull string) and the kids all thought is was awesome. My only complaint is that when it arrived in the mail the tail fin was broken. It hadn't fallen off all the way, so I was able to work around it. I think some more careful packing would have avoided that whole dilemma. Overall, we were super happy with this item.

                The shark fulfilled its role. The birthday boy and guests had fun breaking open the shark. However, I found it very difficult to fill the pinata. The opening located near the shark's dorsal fin was difficult to open. I was worried the dorsal fin would separate prematurely from the shark's body. Also, the shark look a little more drowsy than fierce. I think only the adults noticed that detail. :)

                      [...] Great customer service! I hope I can put the pull-string conversion kit together correctly. I'm not so sure with the shape of this shark that the candy/toys will fall out the bottom so easily (might get stuck in the tail). We'll see come party time....

                        My son (3years old) loved this. It takes some craftiness to add the ribbon kit and the extra crepe paper that comes with the kit to hide the ribbon ends is yellow. Not so deceptive considering the shark is white and blue. I found a way to hide them under the existing paper and it worked out well. We will hang this in my sons room for a while so he can enjoy it.

                            The shark pinata was pretty cool. The quality was also good, but they are too small. We bought two. Good size for about 10 kids or less.

                              Perfect for my 6 year old son's birthday pool party. A little tricky to convert (this shape)to a pull/ribbon pinata, but worth it. The kids loved it!
