- For answers to commonly asked Label questions, see below.
Piñata feature a personalized tag (or label), usually attached somewhere on their posterior, that contains all the individual and unique data about who it is, its garden of origin and the original owner.
You can customize this tag by giving your pinata a unique name and logo using the Label Designer found in the menu. Any piñatas that you have made a resident from the wild will have a blank tag, with that piñatas offspring sporting your personal label.
The tag helps keep track of where you received a certain Piñata and what gardens it has visited. Who knows... your Piñata may travel across the world!
The Label Designer is used to customize a pinata's unique label.
A label consists of a border, a background, and a logo. Each of those three areas has many different color and pattern combinations to choose from making for millions of unique combinations.
A pinata has to be born in that garden, to have a garden's tag. Residents you've attracted from the wild, or had Gretchen fetch for you, will have a blank tag. View thread
