Description

This is my original design of the fabulous crab TAMATOA inspired by Disney's Moana! This is a 100% handcrafted and hand painted three dimensional work of art! Tamatoa features a glittering golden shell, two pincers and 6 more legs...well...to stay true to the movie 6minus the one Maui chopped off! He truly is not a drab little crab now! He's as happy as a clam, beatiful baby!

All of my piñatas are lovingly crafted from start to finish. The traditional papier-mâché creates a sturdy, yet breakable piñata. You will not find cheaper, difficult to break cardboard box construction here but layered papier-mâché. I precut a treasure door and include a hand braided sisal hanging rope. It is important to me that all of my piñatas are made as sustainable as possible so I source recycled and biodegradable materials in the bulk of the construction. You won't find any plastic or metal parts but all of the highest quality traditional materials.

I am glad to offer any customizations to fit your celebration. Please convo me, I will be happy to help!

This Tamatoa is available for order as featured in the pictures or if you want to live on the dark side I will paint him in the glow in the dark color scheme from the movie.

We loved this beautiful pinata! Studio Folklorica created a spectacular custom pinata for our daughter's garden themed party. It was almost too pretty to use as a pinata, but the kids had a blast hitting it. We had attended a recent birthday party with young kids and they had a very difficult time getting the store-bought pinata to break. This pinata held up well but took much less time to break. Customer service was great and the pinata arrived well packed.

FAQs

Currently all StudioFolklorica piñatas are based on a 42-44” circumference sphere which does not included decoration. The piñatas ship in a double reinforced 18x18x16” box with just a little room to spare. These would be considered XL piñatas. As each piñata is handmade small variations may occur and custom size requests are welcome!
Shipping is priced by individual carriers. This is considered an oversized package, most piñatas weigh approximately 8 pounds packed and ship in an 18x18x16 double reinforced box from zip code 97477. If you would like to provide your own pre-paid shipping label please attach it to a convo with your order number.
