I have wanted to ask this before and have yet to see one on ebay, but does anyone own or seen or know where a guy can get the old Hawaiian 'floaty' pens?

I had one. Had a Hawaiian scene (may have had a tiki in the corner, or I may be imaging that), palm trees, and a outrigger with its riders would "float" back and forth.

I made the mistake of taking the one that my dad had given me to show 'n tell in the 2nd grade (yes, we're talking the 70's here!). After placing it safely in my desk, it was gone when I returned from recess.

Has anyone seen anything like this on ebay or anywhere else for that matter?
Do they even hold up (still float) through time? I may never know.

Desperately seeking a replacement.

Thanks.
-C.

This doesn't sound just like your old one, but might do until you find one.
Ebay item # 2134534564.
It is pretty cool !!!!

Thanks guys!

Yes, the one lady has some pens similar, but definately newer.

And I never really knew what to call them until I saw JunglePams posting somewhere and she refered to them as "floaty pens".
I have been looking in search engines & ebay for Hawaii pen or something of that nature, never knowing they had a name.
I tried liquid pen one time and got a few results, but none that were what I thought I was looking for.

Well, my search continues. Thanks again!

I realize this was eleven years ago, but if you're still looking for this pen I found it here: http://m.ebay.com/itm/281183322285

Yes sir. Picked them up at the Mai Kai gift shop during the 2007 Hukilau. They had red and green.
