    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.

    The easiest way to get this is to use an at least level 9 piñata. The base value is 4.500 for a level 9 and that's what you want to break the 10.000 mark without having to wait for anything. The cool thing is : the Chewnicorn is level 9 and you'll need it for another achievement anyway, so use her.

    Once you have it, it's time to max out accessories. 7 out of the 9 spots use random 600 coins accessories. The other two are the mouth where the highest value items cost 360 coins, and the hat where you can buy the extra valuable Sturdy Halo (2.700 coins). All in all, you have to spent 7.260 coins to add 5.500 value to your lovely Chewnicorn.

    4.500 + 5.500 should give you the achievement. If it doesn't pop right away, feed it a Joy Candy (found in Ivor Bargain's shop) to max its happiness for a 10% of base value (450) boost.

    Of course if you bother to get a level 10 piñata like an Elephanillia, it's even easier as their base value is 5.500. You can also use the level 11 Dragonache and in this case you won't even need accessories as once fully grown his base value is 11.000. It's a bit harder to get though, your choice.
