When we heard about Amnesty International's big idea we were more than delighted to make them a BIG piñata to match. We based it on a traditional Mexican star shape design. It measured 165cm across the body and a further 150cm across its frill-fringed points. It was made out of papier-mâché and heavy-duty card and its frills were decorated with multi-coloured tissue paper in the traditional Mexican style. This piñata was made with a trap door style opening under its lowest spike specifically so that it could burst open on queue and so that it could be used multiple times!
