The tiki "parti" lights (but not the packaging) are pictured on page 150 in the "Tiki Quest" book. Described as "Classic PMP design."
That's as far as my photographic memory goes.

I have a set of those patio lights in my apartment, but they are Moais (and faded from hanging in my window for eight years).

Yeah, the lights themselves are molded pretty darn close to the style of the classic, and very often ripped off PMP mug design.

You see these lights around from time to time, but they were still a good find, IMHO.

The Moai lights, on the other hand, are still currently being made, but there is a vintage style too. The vintage ones are richer, deeper colors, like the PMP lights.

The new ones are brighter, more day-glo-ish colors.

The lamps are modeled after the Marquesan style of tiki, similar to this one:
