I know you guys are really pumped about the Tiki Figures at Dollar Tree. I too, have picked up a few of them. Here's an interesting item my fiancee picked up during her latest trip there. A very nicely detailed palm tree, ceramic mug. Neat, eh?

Hey Tiki Chris,

If you happen to be passing a Dollar Tree, I wouldn't mind some of these little chaps myself. I realise you've just gone to get some for the others, so don't go out of your way on my behalf.

Cheers,
Trader Woody

I picked up about 50 of those Dollar Tree tikis and was disappointed to find whitish/grey splotches on the brown faux-wood paint. I had thought these were areas the paint hadn't adhered to but when I ran a damp washcloth over these spots they came right off and browned up nicely. I hope this info. is of use to somebody. TIKI TIKI TIKI!!

Cool, I hadn't tried for fear they would disintegrate.

Polly at Omni Hut has one of the three-tiki Dollar Tree tikis up by her cash register. She said an employee brought it in and, when she went right back out to buy more, they were gone. Even managers of tiki restaurants must suffer shortages with us collectors.

I wanted to bump up this thread to ask a question:

Here in the midwest, the Dollar Tree and most other stores only stock tiki themed stuff in late sprig to early summer. Does anybody have the word on when exactly this will happen? If anybody sees this stuff commming out this spring, at the Dollar Tree or anywhere else, please let me know. Mahalo.

Nothing here in N. Texas yet. Last year they got their tiki stuff in March. I'll keep checking.

Theeerrrree Baaaack!

I picked up a second full set of the little guys at lunch today. They had 2 different colors here in Denver (light and dark colored). The shelve in the store looked kind of slim, like they were selling quickly. These guys are hard to beat for $1 a each.

Here is a earlier post on how I used the first batch of little guys.

I picked up one of every style and color I could of these little guys at my local Dollar Tree here in SNJ. My best bud tipped me off that they had them! I remember reading posts about them in previous years but never found any in my area, then BAM they appeared this year!I took home about 15 or so!

I read this a couple weeks back and was discouraged when my local dollar tree carried nothing of the sort. But after a stop at the barber shop yesterday found myself searching again at dollar tree and hitting tiki pay dirt. Thanks for the post. I got six of them.
