Nothing will make a Tiki cry faster than setting him on fire. I picked up a great little crying Tiki candle yesterday. Great vintage graphics and packaging. The instructions on the back read like a Tiki torture manual. These were often scented and colored tears refills were available. Another great product to brought to you by Tiki pop culture.






Here is a larger version from my collection.

I have a couple of those, sans the instructions, and always wondered what the eye holes were about. Now I know! THANKS!
