"Dreadful customer service! They shipped the incorrect costume-childs size rather than adult. I called several times, no one ever answers. Also sent an email, no response. Eventually spoke to someone who idenitified themself as management. She was very curt, bordering on rude. She made no apology and promised to ship the correct item. I hope this will actually happen. I would not recommend this vendor, nor will I ever purchase from them again."

"Did not deliver product...ever. Just sent refund 5 days before the child's birthday party. No offer of help from customer service. I phoned 5x and e-mailed twice seeking help...just got told off by surly employee. I would never use them again. When confronted with the facts she said, "I would never admit to that."

"I shopped because they had the largest selection of pull-string pinatas I could find anywhere. I ordered one lion pinata. I got an email confirmation immediately and another email confirming the order had shipped the next day. The pinata arrived via UPS within 5 days of placing the order, and it is absolutely adorable. The quality is better than I expected. 

I would buy from this merchant again. As a hint, there are 10% off coupon codes floating around out there on the couponing sites."
