Papier mâché -vs- Card board
Let's compare from the inside out,
a custom piñata creation versus a generic piñata.
Piñata on the Left
The piñata on the left is one of our custom piñata art creations made from papier-mâché, which is made to break and not frustrate your party guests.
Even better, you won't have to cut open
to retrieve goodies.
Piñata on the Right
The piñata on the right is a generic piñata made from
corrugated cardboard with
reinforced angles which makes for strong and durable, Not Breakable!
Ever Been Disappointed by a Piñata?
Have you ever bought a piñata from the party store, and been disappointed because
come party time it just wouldn’t break open. Well the reason for this is because they are made from corrugated card board. Yep, that’s right, the same corrugated cardboard that moving boxes are made from.
Corrugated Cardboard is a hard enough material to break through, add that to the shape of the generic piñata with its spliced cardboard angles giving it form, all act as a reinforcement to the entire piñata.
Now for any other product, you would pick strong and durable.
This however is not what you want for your party piñata.
You want it to be fun, coordinating, and most importantly breakable.
That’s why we only create our piñatas using 100% papier-mâché; not cardboard.
