    Buying accessories adds value to your pinatas, as well as their "joy level". If they are overjoyed, their value gets a little boost. If the pinata isn't overjoyed, purchase some joy candy and direct the pinata to it. It will eat the candy and the joy level will rise.

    Sending them away for factory challenges also adds value. There are often challenges that pop up asking for "a single pinata, preferably a valuable one". When this happens, always send away the one you are trying to value-boost. When it's returned, it'll be worth more. I picked a pinata with a fairly high base value, maxed him out with accessories, then mailed him to myself and left him at the post office until the challenges popped up, then I'd retrieve him...send him away...then repeat the process. Keeping him at the post office keeps him safe so you don't have to worry about him getting sick, fighting with other pinatas, etc ;~)

    You obviously need to do this with one of the more rare/valuable pinatas so you don't have to work as hard to get the achievement.

    Get the Taffly, make it fly though fire, and put it out now you have a Redhot worth 2100, go and buy 2900 worth of accessories and you have got your achievement fairly early on.

    DeeecoI couldn't get this to work. Most accessories I could buy and use only gave me 3900

    Another easy method if your a decent way through the game, hire diggerlings and buy a mine and let them mine. After a set amount of days you will recieve a Dragonache egg. Direct a Cluckles onto it to hatch, recieving a immature Dragonache instantly worth 11,000 chocolate coins.

    SpilnerTrouble with this is you get diggerlings after a very late level, it costs a lot and the amount of time you may need to wait can be random. On the PC version i got one after 40 or so hours while it was 20 or so on the xbox version when tbh you can get all bar the 50hours achievement for the game in 10 or so. Not saying this is a bad way just not the fastest way (Sorry if that came across thatway)
