Piñata stuffer ideas?

We just used candy at DD's 1st party for the guests. She didn't have a piñata for her 2nd. We just bought one for her 3rd. She's old enough to hit it herself and not be afraid of it. Since she'll be cracking it, what can I put in it? She doesn't eat candy and that's not changing. There will only be 2 other small kids and one has many allergies. So I figure sugar, chocolate, and nuts are a bad idea anyway. All the fruit snacks I've seen are basically candy with pictures of fruit on the label. Any ideas for treats and prizes? I already got bouncy balls but can't think of anything else. It's a small piñata so I don't need much to fill it.

  • small glow in the dark items
    plastic rings (if you think the children will not put them in their mouths)
    As Sabrina says try OrientalTrading.com it has a lot of ideas for a fairly cheap price...

  • Try looking at the dollar store. Butterfly tattoos, stickers, I don't know girl stuff since I have boys.
