Sculpted and manufactured by Tiki Al. Beads chosen and strung by Trader Tom. Tiki Al made a small handful of this variant. He also made an Oceanic Arts Moai Pendant holding the same emblem.
This Jumbo Limited Edition pin was inspired by Steven Miller, Project Manager for Disney Pin Trading at the Walt Disney World® Resort. Steven's design resembles a postcard and features Mickey Mouse in a tropical outfit. When asked about his Pinbassador Inspirations, Steven replied, "For every good odyssey, it is customary to send postcard greetings to friends and family. I enjoy collecting vintage Disney postcards and sharing the 'Aloha' spirit with others. In this pin, I combined those two interests as Mickey Mouse sends greetings from the happiest place on earth, the Disneyland® Resort. Hang Loose!" A collection of Limited Edition pins inspired by Disney Pinbassadors has been created for Mickey's Pin Festival of Dreams. A Disney Pinbassador provides strategic direction for the Disney Pin Experience and finds new ways for Guests and Cast Members to "Continue the Disney Pin Trading Tradition" at Disney Parks and Resorts. It is a limited edition of 500. It is in brand new condition in its original box. Measures 3" high by 3 1/2" wide.

This is one of several CoCo Joe's tiki keychains that were released both in black (lava) and brown (Hapawood/Half-Wood). Each had a metal keychain attached and a small green or orange paper tag that told what they were (i.e., God of Wisdom). They also had colored rhinestone eyes (usually red, green, or blue). This particular pendant had its keychain removed and was strung on a cord. Additionally, since it was missing one of its rhinestone eyes, I popped out the second one and replaced them with composite white opals. The camera flash doesn't do the eyes justice (in real life there are many shades of pink and blue). Probably early 1970s.
