Was doing a little XMas shopping this weekend and came across these at the Chrstmas Tree Shop in Manchester, CT. Its a knock off of the Toscano one, with a pineapplely top instead of the horned one. I seem to remember seeing these in mini sizes (like 1 footers) but this one is around 3 feet (+/-). Tiki is in lower right.

They look like the same kind of resin Tikis that was advertised in those catalogs you find on airplanes. I think it was Air Mall.

The SkyMall catalog tikis are from Design Toscano, as Bargoyle mentioned. The Toscano ones are 2.5 or 3 feet tall, so they're about the same size. (A TC search on "Toscano" will bring up all kinds of threads about the tikis, and their knockoffs, and what they're knocked off from to begin with). Boy, the next generation of knockoff is going to look like a stack of sleeping Muppets.

That one looks like a bigger version of the resin tiki they had at Big Lots earlier this year. It was about 12" tall and cost about $8.

I was walking by a co-worker's desk earlier and noticed not one but THREE of those creepy dolls on and around her monitor.

Needless to say, I backed away slowly...
