Mr Tiki on on the move to TikiSkip in Ohio. It will be interesting see how the tracking device works on his trip.

From now on, all Mr. Tiki's gonna talk about is the proper way to make tiki lamps and how terrible Ohio winters are!

The sky's DID clear up, it was raining for a week before Mr. Tiki got here.
If he brings sunshine wherever he goes I will not send him on!


So it's kind of his birthday so we got cake.
here he is blowing out the candle now.



Am trying to teach him how to tie fish floats and make lights.


We will go out soon....

First-Class Tikiskip treatment all the way! Don't let him eat too much cake, or that will increase shipping costs!

Looks like he made a mess of your twine. Be careful, he is part menehune (on his father's side)

It was good cake, but just bought it at the store.

Getting closer to time for Mr. Tiki to move on not going to tell where he is going and will leave that to the new host.

BUT I had an idea and I did ask Mike first as Mr. Tiki is his idea, so I thought it might be fun to have a travel box for Mr. Tiki.

This box is small and comes with almost no decoration that's where the hosts come in.
The people that host Mr. Tiki over time will add small doodle's or decoupage just some form of tiki art stuff to the box, you could glue on a craving or even a small ceramic thing.
And sign and date the box at the very least.

Also Mr. Tiki being a tiki collector himself would naturally pick up souvenir's at the places he visits, just one or two very small items like a postcard or swizzle sticks it, you could carve him a small tiki or even make him a small mug.

Would be best if these represent the places he visits and be tiki but small enough to fit in the box.
Over time his box will become packed with tiki crap like our houses.

I hope this will work and all have fun with it.
How cool would it be to have Tiki Kate's or Tiki David's have signed this, or even art by say LeRoy Schmaltz on this box?

Skip, that's what I call "value added." Way to take a fun thing like Mr. Tiki and raise it to the next level!

I hope the box is fun in the end.
But then it will only be as good as the efforts put into it.

Here are some shots from around Kahiki land.

The large Moai that was in front of the Kahiki.


Here Mr. tiki is with another statue from the Kahiki.


Had thought that Kientz worked on the Giant Statue of King Gambrinus too, but this may not be true.
Philip E. Kientz even drew the image of “the German beer guy” for Plank’s restaurant in German Village
Mr. Kientz also designed the horse head on the Rolling Rock label.

King Gambrinus Statue



And this Mr. Tiki is what we got in place of the Kahiki ... Walgreens.
Not a fair trade in my book.
Check out those awesome Ohio clouds in the sky.


It is said that the eggroll factory is what killed the Kahiki, as the focus went more towards making eggrolls than the restaurant side of things.
As you can, see they even changed the Kahiki font - one would guess to divorce themselves from the old Kahiki a bit.
Here's the eggroll factory.
