The statues on Easter Island are marvels of human ingenuity. But honestly, how practical are they? You can’t move them around easily (the largest one weighs 82 tons). They won’t fit through the bathroom door (33 feet high). And on top of everything else, they serve no useful purpose (other than to provide fodder for TV shows about ancient aliens).
As you can see, this Tiki head tissue box cover is in many ways an improvement on the original models. Not only is it much easier to mount on your wall, but it provides an attractive – and hilarious – exterior for a box of Kleenex or whatever your tissue of choice is. The cover has an elastic band in back to hold the box securely in place as you tug tissues from the statue’s nose.
You don’t actually have to mount this cover on the wall. It can also sit flat on a counter or table. However, one thing you probably don’t want to plan on doing is sitting it upright without some sort of anchor. The customer reviews indicate that it tends to topple over.
This item is both unique and funny, making it a great little novelty gift for the person who has everything. It’s also the sort of kitschy gift that often becomes the center of attention at a white elephant/dirty Santa gift exchange.
