Discover all the details of where to get a gender reveal pinata, what options there are beside pull string pinata gender reveals, what makes for the best gender reveal pinata stuffing or filler, and even how to make your own DIY gender reveal pinata!
There are so many fun gender reveal ideas out there! From gender reveal cakes and gender reveal scavenger hunts, to fun gender reveal poems and riddles, there is always a fun way to announce to the world (or at least your close friends and family) if your newest bundle of joy will be a girl or a boy!
A fairly popular trend is using a gender reveal pinata! Or maybe it’s just popular here in Texas, where people love any excuse to get a pinata in on the party action! No matter if you whack the pinata yourself or use a pull string pinata for the gender reveal, pinatas are just fun.
However, I have also seen a few pinata gender reveals not go according to plan and the pinata pull-strings don’t actually pull anything open or the gender reveal pinata filling was the wrong choice, or fell on their head…
I’m hoping to help you with all of those dilemmas and more so you don’t become an unfortunate meme someday!
Gender Reveal Pinatas
One of the simplest ways to do a baby pinata gender reveal is to just buy a pre-made pinata. Plus, it saves you some time and creativity, should you lack in either, or both!
Where to Buy Gender Reveal Pinatas
Some popular places to buy a baby gender reveal pinata are:
- Etsy (so many options!)
- Amazon (not a ton of options)
- Party City (they only have one)
- Oriental Trading Company (they only have one)
It was a bit surprising to me that more places didn’t sell gender reveal pinatas, as I thought they were pretty popular, but I really couldn’t find a ton! Some retailers only have one they sell!
You can, of course, opt to get a generic or non-baby specific pinata and fill it as you choose with pink or blue. The real surprise of course comes with what’s reveal when it is cracked or pulled open!
Gender Reveal Pinata Stuffing
While some gender reveal pinatas come with gender reveal pinata stuffing and filler, not all do. Or you might want something else inside. It’s totally up to you!
Generally, the gender reveal pinata filler contains things like pink or blue:
You can buy pre-made packs of gender reveal pinata filler or buy the various parts yourself.
However, you could also throw in whatever you wanted as long as it is colored that either blue or pink! You could get something like blue-wrapped vanilla Tootsie Roll Midgees mixed with blueberry flavored Dum Dums so everyone can still have a nice little treat after it is whacked open, like a traditional pinata.
