We were in the garden section of our local Target today, and saw they are carrying faux Tiki statues! They had at least 5 different designs. Only one was stone (cement?), and the rest were hollow plastic painted to look like wood. Except for the stone Tiki (with no price), they cost $39.99.

I assume this is part of their Spring garden inventory. If imitation is the ultimate form of flattery, then what does a hollow plastic copy of an imitation Polynesian statue mean?

There is an Easter Island bust (which is not that bad) and the more common elongated tiki face. The prices are $40.00.


They did not have any of the Hawaiian tiki styles.

Thanks for the heads up, I don't think the Target here in Allentown brings in spring stuff for another month or two. Despite the unseasonally warm weather (we're above freezing), we will probably get a couple good snow storms yet this winter.

I've seen all five of them over the past two days. There are three tikis and two totems. Two of the tikis are moai and the other looks kind of like the Orchids R-3 mug.

They've also got an outdoor furniture line called Mai Tiki. It's bamboo. They've got a gazebo, a bar, barstools, chairs and fountains. Pretty cute and reasonably priced.

Approximately 24 - 36 inches. Certainly worth a consideration. I have one of the totems, but I could understand if one could resist.

I was just looking at the Mai Tiki "bamboo" Fire Bowl outdoor fire pit/table on their website. I've been looking around for something just like that!

Does anyone know of any pictures of these tikis they sell? I can't find anything on the website.

The semi-hollow 36" tikis they had for sale at the
Target in Long Beach looked something like this

A Target in Pompano Beach, FL is now offering Bamoo "Tiki" bars and Bamboo covered gazebos. At first I thought my wife was joking but its true. Not fake bamboo - tikis going mainstream.

They also have this weird dash-board tiki-hula-guy thing....maybe its easier to just look at the picture:

target.com/gp/detail.html/sr=1-23/qid=1137607176/ref=sr_1_23/602-1332965-5938250?%5Fencoding=UTF8&asin=B0009S66O2" target="_blank">http://www.target.com/gp/detail.html/sr=1-23/qid=1137607176/ref=sr_1_23/602-1332965-5938250?%5Fencoding=UTF8&asin=B0009S66O2

I'm not sure about this one. The traditional wigglin' wahine on a dash still looks best to me.

Here is my personal favorite:

What will they think of next? Perhaps little paper umbrellas in drinks?
