My S.O. called my attention to some tiki and tikiesque toys tonight and I thought maybe we should have a thread just for childrens' tiki toys since there seem to be a few this year. Some of us have kids to buy for so it might be nice to have them all in one place. I borrowed the links and pics from Amazon and posted photo links of the Amazon pics from my shutterfly account in case Amazon changes it's links later this year.

My Scene Guava Gulch by Mattel; price: $19.99
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/B0000E2DJO/103-1486566-3700615?v=glance&s=toys&vi=pictures&img=14#more-pictures
This is scaled for a series of 12" fashion dolls. If they can actually fit in the chairs, I think my 1960's GI Joes are gonna have to have a drink. Note the thankfully brown Marquesan(?) tikis. My girlfriend tell me Toys R Us has these.

And its hard to confirm from the picture but I think maybe the menu on the bar has a decent rendition of the Daga/Steve Crane Ports of Kon-Tiki mug.


Polly Pocket Totally Tiki Diner & Clubhouse with Stretchy & Magnetic Polly and Rick by Mattel; price: $14.99
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/B00005BM51/103-1486566-3700615?v=glance&s=toys&vi=pictures&img=14#more-pictures
Unlike the previous entry, this has no appeal to me. It looks like a version of the Florida beach-side tiki bars I've heard described. I only note it here because the word "tiki" is used and someone might hear of it and wonder what it looks like. There is more to the set than in this pic, but I wanted to show the close-up with the bowl. I have seen these at Wal-Mart.


The first of the following two Play-Doh items has been mentioned on TC previously; but not with a photo. I don't think the second has been noted. I've seen both at Wal-Mart.

Doh Doh Island Playset by Hasbro; price: $9.99
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/B00007H1ZI/103-1486566-3700615?v=glance&s=toys&me=A3UN6WX5RRO2AG&vi=pictures&img=1#more-pictures


Play Doh- Doh Doh Island Squishketball Arcade by Hasbro; price: $9.99
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/B0000YGDXE/qid=1077176141/sr=1-3/ref=sr_1_3/103-1486566-3700615?v=glance&s=toys
The little red thing is a passable moai that can exude play-doh hair from holes in the top of it's head.


Hot Wheels Tiki Torcher Playset (Jungle Rally) by Mattel; price: $19.99
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/stores/detail/-/toys/B0000E3BU9/qid%3D1077176882/sr%3D11-1/ref%3Dsr%5F11%5F1/103-1486566-3700615
This has been discussed here but I don't think anyone posted a picture. http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic-new.php?topic=7243&forum=5
The funny thing is, if you read the reviews on the Amazon listing nobody has anything good to say about this thing; I believe a TC member also complained about it's construction. It has been reported at Wal-Mart and Target, that I know of.


There is also a five-pack of cars as mentioned elsewhere in TC but I found no pic of it.

Anyone got any more toys to add to this thread?

Here's an item from last year that's still for sale:

American Girls Tiki Party Set, which includes possibly the world's smallest tiki mugs.

Not quite tiki, but also of interest is the American Girls Groovy Room:

The Islander Lego sets from 1994 are discontinued but still found at cheap prices on Ebay:

tikijackalope - the mug on the menu is actually Lil Lono Double shot mug by crazy Al. It is available on tiki farm now. I know because I have both the barbie set and the mug. (one for my daughter one for me)

My daughter got two Christmas gifts that included mini Tiki Mugs. A Barbie and one of those Bratz dolls. Both came with Tiki mugs that I quickly snatched up and started the worlds smallest Tiki Mug collection.

I just saw this at Target last night:



It's more Doh for the island playset.

Oddly enough, it turns out Play-Doh has a whole
Doh-Doh Island website with movies (there's a video) and a Tiki Art Studio and Tiki Arcade.

I just saw these at Toys R Us last night- the tiki on the menu is is actually the Ono Lono mug designed by Crazy Al for Tiki Farm. And I'm 80% sure the brown tikis are the Monster Marqs from Tiki Diablo. Gentlemen, start your lawyers!

And there is a bonus Play Doh refill set for the Doh-Doh's that has a tiki on the package and cool "gothic" black play-doh.

Well, I bought this a few weeks ago. It's really detailed and damn cool. Unfortunately, it requires some damn "power platform" thing to run the torch lights, and of course they don't make them anymore so they're collectors items and selling for hundreds of $$$ on eBay. So, fuck. Plus, I'm on this damn American Girls mailing list now, and getting this catalog full of creepy dolls in my mail each week.

So the moral of the story is: Fuck you, Sabu. You did this to me. Asshole.




(before anyone suggests it, I've already been to radio Shack and solved my torch light problems.)

So, how tall are the tikis and the tiki mugs in the American Girls Tiki Party Set?

The tikis are about 4", the cool moai light-up torches are 6.5" and the mugs are a wee, but detailed 3/4" It's pretty darn cool.

Don't diss the AG dolls too badly. Mine look pretty cool in their custom-made tiki garb...

It's here, and it's really, really great! Guess I'll have to go to Radio Shack so I can light those torches! I give this set a big thumbs up!

"Honey, I shrunk Martiki!"

Well, it wouldn't be so bad, he could wear this tiny tiki shirt and play the mini bongos while drinking out of his petite AG tiki mugs:
