When I was a kid growing up in Anaheim, CA, we went to Disneyland a lot. Next to the Jungle Cruise was a kiosk we called the "Rubber Snake Hut" because they sold rubber snakes. But they also sold lots of Coco Joes. I remember staring at the rows of tikis - brown or black, some with rhinestones, some without. I had a big Lono that had a bright purple plastic orchid glued on the base. Of course, I went through my rebel teenage years and got rid of it. I have about 5 or 6 Coco Joes tikis now - mostly acquired from antique stores or thrift shops. I love them. It's best if you can find the tiki's with the labels on the back or under the base that describe who they are. My personal faves are any with rhinestones. Love them rhinestones on tikis.
