Sorry it's so long, but they did produce 200 or so products. I have been doing extensive research on the company and it's products. Considering doing some reproductions for those folks interested in the style, but not the hefty price tag these items often come with, if you can find them at all.




It would be very interesting to see some of their TIKI product. Do you have any images of:

#402 - #409,
#707 - #714,
#805 & #806,
#818A - #828,
#870 - #889,
#891,
#911

Tiki is a very visual pop culture, and if you would post images of any of these you could get a more accurate idea of the interest out there.
Uploading mages here is very easy. No need for ALL of them, of course

That is very cool that you found this. Since I can remember going to the Haunted House, I dug all that ghoulish stuff. The old Haunted House was much better than the re"Vamped" one. Anyway, thanks for the link to Doombuggy. Just another thing to delv into during down time at work...um I mean when I get home.
Mahalos,

That was an awesome post! Thanks so much for posting, sharing and most of all, cataloging all of that. I'm sure it can be useful for everyone into Randotti products!

I used to have a tiki pendant necklace I got at Disneyland, pretty sure it was a Randotti piece. I wish I could find a picture of it - it had rubys for eyes. Come to think of it, I think that was my first tiki!

when you create the reproductions are you crediting rondotti as the designer? it would be really cool to own an actual rondotti licensed piece in this day and age.

I take care to not only let folks know that these items come from original Randotti casts, and are Randotti designs, but also that they are not produced by Randotti any longer. I don't want someone buying one thinking they are getting a Randotti produced item. While the reproductions have that same look, they aren't collectable originals and thereby don't carry the large price tag. I also don't want anybody buying repros from me and passing them off as originals, so I date the bottoms of each piece.

They can be seen at:

I personally only have one original Randotti piece. I bought it from a lady that worked for the company and now sells new old stock. It was really expensive, but it was one of the designs that I owned as a child so I wanted to make sure I had at least that one. I would love to own many of them, but the prices can be prohibitive. Plus, not all the originals glowed, and that just seems like a waste. Why not, when they look so cool in the dark? As a result, just about all of my reproductions glow, or are at least available in a glow in the dark version. Oh well, maybe someday I can acquire more originals.....until then my tiki bar glows from the light of reproduction skulls and tikis. Still pretty cool though.

Thanks for posting those catalog pages. A while ago I bought a plaster cast of the 12 inch 'Hedleba' Tiki, with its name incised on the bottom (no Randotti tag though), and the signature sounded strangely familiar. I asked Bamboo Ben about it, and indeed, his aunt Ba Hedley was friends with Randotti's daughter, so it seems likely she designed that Tiki. Eli Hedley had his own store in Adventureland. Dotieba is another curious name...

I believe the Tiki pendant business of the 60s and 70s was 'copy and get copied', Randotti included.

Just off the top of my head I can tell that #9,10 and 13 are Randotti copies. They could be recasts or refinished originals I suppose, but they seem to lack the detail usually present on the originals.

Found a Randotti # 889 Happy God today



Out in the wild, I looked at the number on the bottom and asked myself, "Hey! I wonder if this is a Randotti? Looks like a Randotti number to me." Then I wondered what other important information was purged out of my mind to make room for my Randotti number recognization capabilities. I have an iPhone now, so maybe that will slowly replace some of the more useless cognitive functions I currently have.


Randotti is the same as the Matson ones. From L-R Monterrey, Mariposa, Randotti, and Unmarked black


Buzzy Out!
