At $12.48, it's hard to say no. I do not particularly like these, but I had to get one of each. I took the black one and stuck it in a dark corner of the yard and partially covered it with vines and it looks good. You don't even notice it at first and then you can't see it well when you do. Works well there.

I wonder how they will do in freezing temps, and in direct sun at 100 degrees.

I'm going to check out Target tomorrow and see if they're in my area. On a similar note, my friends Dad found this guy at Menards a year or two ago. I've looked everywhere and have been unable to find him or any information on where I can get one. Its about 2 feet high and a resign covered plastic. The thing I like about it is that it has a flower pot on top. Anyone know where I can get one (or three) thanks.

Well, they haven't gone on sale yet here in any of the Target's I've been in here in Tucson. I'm hoping for 75% off.

They're still in the $30 - $40 range up here!

I've got my fingures crossed.

Ms Swanky's Mom went to the store where she took the above photo with 50 of them in stock, and she said she could not find one... I need a brown one now!

I bought a pair two weeks ago and had no choice but to leave them in the backseat of my car, outdoors, in the Midwest heat wave for nine days while I travelled in another vehicle. Even with the three-digit temps in a closed car, I checked them tonight and there is no damage. They're ceramic, you know, not resin as far as I can tell.

As to prolonged UV damage to the colors, who knows?

A cautionary note: open and inspect them when you buy them; about 1/4 of the sample I picked through already had slight damage while in the store. The black one is packed upside down and subject to edge-of-head damage if set down too hard.

None are in boxes here. I am more worried about direct sunlight on the black. There is not a hole in them, which means the air inside could expand and burst them.

I have one of each here in Florida. I have had more of an issue with the black paint chipping off on the top due the frequent rainstorms. Not as bad with the brown.

I plan on touching them up with spray paint after the rain season.

There *is* a hole in some of them, right in the center of the bottom. I had to look through about 16 boxed pieces; I noticed the holes in about 1/4 of them.

I figured I was too late to catch any of the clearance tikis but lo and behold I found some in Olympia, WA for 12.49 each! (Black only.) There's some slight chipping, but nothing a black sharpie can't fix. I wonder if using a sealant would help with the weather issues? I'm thinking they'll have to get packed up once we hit fall since I'm in a big rain region. Not today though and 90's projected for the next few days. :::sizzle::: I've been listening to friends complain about the heat recently and now we're gonna fry.... pass the water bottle...

Still full price here in San Diego $29 - $39 - $49 each. I was thinking of cutting the top of the head out and make a planter out of them.

Help!

All they ever had in the Denver Targets were the brown Tikis with the little divits on them. If there is anyone out there who has an extra of any of the other kinds and would be willing to sell one, please let me know.

T.F.
