Party Animals are consumable items that spawn a Party Animal (NPC) that will drop loot when defeated. They can be obtained when purchasing several pack deals that include the item or they can be rarely obtained in Chaos Chests. These Party Animals have a chance to drop the Prancing Pinata mount.
These items were the original and first set of pinatas that introduced several themed pinatas in the future (mainly the seasonal and shadow pinata variants). Shortly after its release, Autumn Pinatas were introduced as the first seasonal pinata.
