How limited are these mugs? $80 for a $36 bowl that was released TODAY seems excessive.

They are not limited. They will be reordered once they sell out.

The bottom of the bowl and the mug is stamped with first edition. I wonder how many they will make before they make the second edition.

Hopefully the mugs will appear again later at a more reasonable price. I would be interested in knowing how the volcano bowls compare in capacity to non-Disney bowls. A good balance of both form and function is always nice.

For everyone out of state I'm sure the new Trader Sam's mugs will end up on ebay. Everything ends up on ebay. I'll be going after work to pick up mine!


For 3x the retail price where they languish stubbornly.


That's unfortunately true.



They're already up there and at nosebleed prices. This isn't limited to Disney stuff, as anyone who has seen the swarms of people descending on, say, Target to scoop up Missoni items for resale can attest.

Speaking strictly for myself, I'm willing to wait it out...I see no need to subsidize gougers.

Holden, that bowl is sweet! The barrel is a killa! Trader Sams-the drinks were tasty.
Ace ; the barrel holds a little more than 2 1/4 cups (18 oz.). The bowl has a capacity of 3 1/2 cups (28 oz.) There are some small holes 1/4 " or so from the rim of the bowl that prevents filling the bowl completely.Otherwise Sam's would be serving up 32/34 oz. bombs. I dunno how these stack up against other mugs and bowls. TS's doesn't fill the barrel (shipwreck) to the top either but still a fair price if you buy the drink/vessel combo.

I went to Trader Sam's today. The new mugs are great. I especially like how the barrel mug fits in with the Trader theme.



When we were leaving, the bartender swapped our dirty mugs for new clean ones, still individually packed in boxes. The boxed mugs, both the barrel and Uh Oa bowl, have "Made In China" stickers on them. Do we know these are really Tiki Farm products? They don't say "Tiki Farm" on them anywhere and I seem to remember Mr. Westland saying once that Tiki Farm mugs are manufactured in Mexico.

-- Update --

I had the great pleasure of meeting Mr. Holden Westland last weekend at the Don the Beachcomber marketplace event. He was extremely gracious -- engaging in friendly conversation with everyone, whether they were buying mugs or not. Anyway, I asked him about the new Sam's mugs and he confirmed they are indeed made by Tiki Farm. You all knew that already though I'm guessing.

As for not saying "Tiki Farm" on them, this is because Disney did not want them to. That's not really so surprising now that I think about it.

As for them being made in China, well, they are.

I bought my 2 today! LOVE Em'! The barrel mug without a drink was $13.00 and the bowl without drink was $30.00. No Annual Pass discount though, bummer! But still worth it! As of 2:00pm, they had plenty left.

Tikifarm is not talking, But if you are familiar with two artist who have a long history
of designing for Disney/Tiki etc. you might have a clue.
