That tiki looks fabulous! Unfortunately, for many many reasons, I refuse to shop at Wal-Mart.

I got this back from walmart.com. Its not much help:

Original Message Follows:
I'd like to find a Wal-Mart Garden Trends tiki UPC: 0
14397 26140 1, which is available in Wal-Mart lawn and garden centers
in
Canada. The problem is, I live in Kansas. Will this item be carried
either at walmart.com or in Wal-Mart stores in the United States? Can I
get one shipped to my local Wal-Mart store so that I may purchase it?

No tiki at Walmart last night.

I will of course check each and every time I have to endure the crowds of, ahem, white trash.

Please excuse my Canadian slang. I assure you that it means something entirely different than what you're used to. Maybe.
And besides, I shop there too. And I aint too in-bred! (cue dueling banjos)

tikijackalope, thanks for the info! At least we know where WalMart's head is at on this.

I found this tiki at Tascano
http://www.designtoscano.com/shopping/product/detailmain.jsp?itemID=1455&itemType=PRODUCT&iProductID=1455 for $49.95 before shipping. Was it significantly cheaper at WalMart?

Hey Silverline, I'd say it was significantly cheaper. It was only $30 Canuck bucks. That's like $20 US...

This may only apply for fellow Canajuns but...

I found another resin garden tiki at Wal-Mart today. It's by "Mainstays Garden" and it's called a "Totem mask figurine". It's about 13" tall and there were 2 other styles which looked more totem pole-esque to me. This one definately passes for tiki in my mind.

I'll post a pic later. Just wanted to give you folks (who don't mind supporting the evil empire) a heads up...

Wow, I just bought that same tiki at The Christmas Tree Shop for seven dollars.

I guess it pays to wait a couple of years. I bought two.

Heads up Canajun tiki fans:

There's yet another Sprawl-Mart resin tiki for the garden season. This one is of a more traditional Ku design and it's eyes light up. Solar-eyes. Yes, it's cheezy. Yes, I bought one.

Pics soon!

Yep, bought one too. Pretty cheap, actually! It sits proudly guarding my balcony among the tiki torches and string of plastic tiki lanterns. I'll post a photo if Slacks doesn't beat me to it, although it'll probably be a day or too before the solar battery is charged enough to capture it in all its glowing-eyed glory!
