Bigbro,
Isn't that the one that Diego use to play with?

No, you mean the ceramic fountain one, which I used as a measuring stick for him:




If it wouldn't have been stolen out of my front yard, I could shoot a pic of it now next to his knees, I would guess, since he shot up to 6.5 feet now, way over my head.

Swanky has the complete set up, with the Ti leaf basins for the the waterfall....

Thanks guys. This is the stuff I was thinking of when I started the thread. I passed up one of these statues a few years ago for twenty bucks! Still kicking myself in the ass for that one. I hope to start a list with all of the styles and sizes of the United Tikis... hey that sounds nice "The United Tikis" I'll have to give that more thought. Thanks for posting.

Cut out cardboard advertising stand up Tiki:


The United Tiki coasters:


... and I know they are not Tikis, but the Menehunes are wonderful too. The "Uncle" came in the full size and also a small bank size:



and like the Tiki decanter, there is a postcard for the Menehune decanter:

Cool, never seen those coasters. Am I interpreting it right, the slogan alludes to Hawaii being an island state of the U.S.?

That is actually a really good price for vintage originals, they typically bring that much EACH on eBay. Those look to be in really great shape too. Fair piece of change for sure, but a bargain compared to what they usually go for.

The reproductions are amazingly accurate. Right down to the sarong and plastic leis.

i found this in my travels this weekend..i suspect it's the last variation united made of these maps....it looks mid seventies style to me...made of vacuum formed plastic with a cardboard backing. it's quite larger than the others ones that feature carved relief frames around them...anyone have any more info about this??

It would be interesting to line up all the United and Primo maps in chronological order to see the devolution of design in America. I mean what went wrong in the 70s? Matchbooks, menus, swizzles...all lost detail, artistry, and pictorial quality. And then they stopped making them all together...

I forgot I had this one, its a little water damaged but still quite fun. It comes in a nice envelope that I suspect was given out the every passenger (probablly in the pouch of the airline seat) with a Luau Party Planner catalog where you can get the best tiki supplies money can buy.
