  • The need:

    The act of blindfolding a child and then having that child swing a stick wildly toward a piñata presents obvious dangers. Often a blindfolded child swings a stick and strikes another child or a breakable object. Furthermore, when a child does strike a piñata, the piñata typically does not open fully. Rather, it opens a little and some candy falls out. This causes other children to run to the piñata while the blindfolded child is still swinging the stick. Again an obvious danger is presented.

    A need therefore exists for a new piñata design that has a non-violent release mechanism, yet enables the piñata to be repeatedly refilled and reused. This need is met by the present invention as described and claimed below.
