When I was kneehigh to a menehune, I loved the “What In the World” feature at the back of the National Geographic World magazine for kids. It showed zoomed-in photos of things (a butterfly’s wing, the center of a dandelion), and you had to guess the item. I thought I’d try the same with some of my tiki stuff I have here at home — and so I bring you What in Polynesian Pop. If you recognize an item pictured above, post your guess as a comment! Be warned — some of these items are probably pretty hard to guess — but I’ll offer clues if people are truly stumped. They’re all Polynesian Pop-related, and they are all objects in my own collection. When someone has a bang-on guess, I’ll announce the item and the name of the correct guesser.

  2. Item one is that usb tiki with the flashing eyes, three is the cover of the Grog Log, and eight is a menehune from Trader Vics, I believe….

  3. #2 is a Trader Vic’s Port Light Glass, and #9 is one of the feet on the famous Humuhumu bamboo purse (as seen in the Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room Collectibles ad)

  4. Item #2 is definitely the Port Light Glass; Item #3 is the cover of the Grog Log. #4 looks like jewelry I think and #8 actually looks more like a part of a mug to me. But I am not at home to compare…

  5. Item 8 looks like the hair from the United Airlines Menehune.

    Item 7 looks kind of like some of the printing on the Mai-Tai glass from Trader Vics

    But, some hints would be helpfull. All of the easy ones have been guessed.

  6. Item #5 looks like the shell inlaid on wood typical of Solomon islands art, it looks like a detail from a nguzunguzu or head hunting canoe /canoe prow. Item 9 looks like part of a tiki mug shelf like the bottom or top.

  7. okay, i will be the first to express frustration. item 6 is really bothering me. it is so familiar. i have viewed these pictures so much that i am starting to think “gee, i have seen these before” with the answer being i have seen them all here at the website.

    could item 5 possibly be from a menu?

  8. Tangaroa was almost (mostly?) right about item #1– it is a USB Tiki Drive. Not the newer mentioned on this blog a few days ago, but the older one that was available in 2004-2005.
