In a lovely garden on the beautiful (and never officially charted) Piñata Island, a multitude of happy, colorful Piñata species live and frolic and dance (Piñatas love to dance) and grow and (in some cases) develop deep-seated neuroses. The Piñatas live to fill themselves full of the most delicious candies a child could ever want, and they eagerly await the glorious day when they’re chosen by the Piñata Factory to “attend” birthday parties, bar mitzvahs, retirement parties and other special celebrations all over the world!
