The "Bratz" need a "Deluxe Virgin Sacrifice Volcano Playset with Lava Stream". I know my niece would go for it.

It's the girls with bathing suits and shorty-shorts sets, all ready for "Jammin' in Jamaica" (ready for adding to your Guava Gulch bar). The dolls and their accompanying gear are $9.99 right now, I believe.

I am poised like a vulture, waiting for the Guava Gulch bars to drop in price at my local Target. 4 of the original 6 are still there, and it's been months. Patience, patience.....

Hi, Kanaloa! I got mine on eBay...all of them for $3.99. (Mugs only.) I think the seller still is putting sets of them out, but I'm not sure, I got mine back in early March.

Target, at least in some stores, has reduced the price of the My Scene Guava Gulch bar set to $16.99. Still too high for me, but heading the right way.

Yep, I'm also still waitin' for less than $16.99 (dropped here in Houston, too). I'll check each week, and if the remaining 4 G.G.'s at my Target start to go, I'll go ahead and pony up the $17...maybe.

But - that's a vintage mug or 2!

Then again, by buying modern tiki items, we do show the manufacturers (and potential bar openers) that there's a market out there for tiki.

Decisions, decisions. To be cheap or to make an investment in the future. Cheap? Investment?

Ah, hell. Cheap wins again. I retain my vulture's stance.

Hey thanks Formikahini, I've been wanting one of those as a photo prop and that price is about right.

I set mine up last night and it is as CUTE as a BUG! (Sorry, no digital camera.) The tiki bar is almost a foot tall (including the parrot who sits atop). I have some Trader Vic's salt and pepper guys sitting in the equipale chairs, chairs which I coincidentally have real ones of in my living room. They look very relaxed, sipping their drinks out of a pineapple and a coconut. Funny thing is, the tikis that hold the palm fronds and tiki torches (all of which come with the set) are a little taller than the TV guys!

I think I'm buying another set, this one for my 4-yr-old niece who's in town today. Start her off on the right track.

Do you think the average 12" male action figure can fit in those chairs? I'm thinking that this Halloween my Universal monsters need to share drinks with Star Trek figures and GI Joes. I can make a volcano bowl so Frankenstein can say "fire, bad!"

And to think I was worried about America's youth. Btw, if Target follows pattern, the next markdown will be two week after the last one. This usually happens on Wednesday in the toy department.

Yes, the 12 inch tall action figures do fit in the Gava Gulch tiki bar set -- I know because i have a set, and my old 12" G.I. Joe set could sit comfortably in the chairs and enjoy a tiki drink. He needs to drop his camouflage outfit though, and borrow some tiki shirts from Ken so he doesn't feel too out of place.

Earlier this week I was at a magazine store, and looking at a Barbie doll collector magazine named 'Barbie Bazaar' Inside they used the Gava Gulch tiki set as a background setting for a photo-essay that combined a Tina Louise-like character and tiki.

There's a good picture of the set here:

http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/B0000E2DJO/102-6132441-4326501?v=glance&s=toys&n=507846&me=A3UN6WX5RRO2AG&vi=pictures&img=14#more-pictures

I changed the signs on mine so that they have the logo of my Tiki Room on them and I also offer pink elephant daiquiris on the little menu board.

I have two Blythe dolls who use the set and are on their way to becoming alcoholics (and they've only been using it about a week). Sad, sad...

I see now that the pics are posted not once, but twice on page one. That's what happens when you don't review the entire old thread. However, it is a great set at a good price (if you like that kind of thing)...at our favorite store of the month: Target.

Mai Tais for the kiddies, you can never start too young....I think these sets should include tropical cocktail recipes!

OH! The niece SHRIEKED, I mean SCREAMED at the top of her lungs when I pulled the box out of the Target bag! I am now officially The Coolest Aunt in the Universe.

Tikijackalope, this last drop in price took months. I'm sure I spent much more in gas checking, than I saved by waiting!

Exoticat, I had the same idea (to change the name on the sign). No time these days to do so, but one of these days. But I didn't think of our beloved TC as the name - great idea!

And Tiki Matt, I made SURE, as does the packaging, to mention often that this tiki bar serves fruit smoothies - only! I enjoy holding the position of The Aunt That The Niece Adores But Who Won't Steer Her in the Wrong Direction. (You know, Do as I say, not as I do!) Her parents trust me that I won't ever lead her down the wrong path, so by gum, I shan't.

Well, except when it comes to buying lotsa really cheap crap that ya don't need but looks really cool.
