Boombox Piñata Drops Beats (and Candy)
December 27th, 2011
I for one think that every party should have a piñata. I don’t care if it’s a birthday, a christening, a wedding or a wake. Smacking objects with a bat while blindfolded until candy pours onto the ground is just perfect for any occasion. But for your next piñata, don’t just get one of those boring old rainbow donkeys – go for something a little more fun, like this boombox piñata.
This particular piñata was made by Etsy seller Fuzzy Lollipop, and looks just like a retro ghetto blaster – minus the actual speakers, cassette player and zillion D-cell batteries to weigh it down. Instead, you fill this one with delicious candies, then proceed to beat on it with a large stick.
I suppose you could just go buy an old thrift shop boombox, rip its innards out, fill it with candy and take a crack, but the flying plastic shards might cause additional injuries beyond just the blunt-force trauma risks of the baseball bat. So if you’d like to go the safer route with this cardboard and crepe paper boombox piñata, you can grab it over on Etsy for $65(USD) now.
