Since Tangaroa is the hot subject now has anyone seen this baby Tiki from Disney's Enchanted Tiki Room? http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=2220619197&ssPageName=ADME:B:SS:US:1

I have a visual with a guy and wire cutters..

Ouh yesss...BOT on page 195 is one that's similar, but I have never seen it dressed up like this.
At some point they were actually selling ALL 4 types of Tongaroa's babies (see the new Shag print) in Adventureland as souvenir statues.

The small ones (6-7 inch) were made out of clay, the big ones (ca. 16 inches) were out of some kind of fiberglass, and all were painted in dull off colors.

As with other Tiki collectibles, the combination of Tiki with another highly collectible pop culture genre (Tiki Bob-Elvis, War God-Frankoma) spells DEATH for the pocket book...

For that price, he'd better make it his REAL god!

That one was real guys - not one of the molded ones for sale in the 60s.... Bonbonvic's bolt cutter quote is probably more accurate than you'd thnk...

Arrgh! A case of baby-napping! Tiki temple desecration!
But then again, Disney used to put quite a bit of precious stuff out to pasture, unaware of it's value (for some nutty folks like us).

I went last Thursday and checked to see if they're were any missing tangaroa babies at the tiki room, but they were all there! I waited around to get pictures of each of them as they dropped down from the tree. It was fantabulous. I think I'll be going back to enjoy the tikiroom very soon, before they "update" it. I could definitelly see someone clipping one of those babies very easily though.

hey tikitony! i'm the bastard that bought the Tangoroa tiki baby. i haven't been to the Disneyland in a while...could you post some of the pics that you mention? although this may have come from Tangoroa, there larger tiki figures were used throughout the attraction over the years. they date from 1963 however you can still find a few placed around the building's exterior. it's probably one of those.

tanks!

congrats on the buy, Sure, I'll post the pictures, but I used old skool film, so it'll be a while before I actually develop them. I was actually taking the pictures because I wanted to copy it to make a tangaroa baby tiki lamp. It's far different than any of my other carvings, so I'm not sure how it'll turn out.

So, did the seller give up where they got him? What's the height of him? Resin, right?

Tone Loc, that's funny, cause I just saved all the pics . I thought to myself,"I gotta carve one of those!" See you Fri? Oh yeah, congrats on the purchase! I think the seller did an inside job. Probably a uke playin' elf!

Isn't anyone afraid of an item being stolen property or a clever fake as the dollar amount paid for things like this or the Skipper Kent's bowl goes up and up and the temptation to unscrupulous dealers increases? I've seen this happen in other collecting hobbies.
