Piñatas in France are part of our Mexican heritage that continue to be a part of our family culture even though we are geographically far from our Mexican roots! My dear friend Zitlaly of Las Piñatas de Laly made this gorgeous piñata for Rémy, a rendition of Kido – one of the Zazoo characters of Little Bilingues. The Zazoo are a big deal around our home, especially for one little 2-year-old boy who recently had a birthday and that’s why this post deserves its own! Rémy had bronchitis the night before his birthday party and so we had to cancel at the last minute and ended up just having a quiet family dinner that evening. It was joyful and sweet, but we didn’t get to break the piñata!!! (I’m an affiliate partner with Ornicar Publishing and have my own online boutique where you can purchase the Zazoo books at a discounted rate. Just click here to view my online store: Zazoo bilingual books for children.)
So Kido sat quietly in our kitchen, awaiting the day when Rémy would smash him open for the goodies inside. And so without further ado, here are the photos. Please show my friend Zitlaly some love by liking her Facebook page and if you live in France and you need a piñata (or a children’s workshop), Laly is your girl!

Piñatas in France are one way that we keep are Mexican heritage alive! How about you? Do you live far from your heritage country? How do you keep your heritage alive wherever you live?
