Souvenir Fridays- United Airlines Tiki Mobile

Today's souvenir is a fantastic bird mobile that was sent out to travel offices to promote United Airlines and the Enchanted Tiki Room in Disneyland. Unfortunately this one became wet many, many years ago before I purchased it and the metal rods have rusted. Some of the rust has transferred to the cardboard pieces. I still love this item as it has everything a Tiki Room collector needs- tiki's, Jose, and advertising for United. Now I just have to figure out how to hang it appropriately.

Thanks to Jed for finding this for me many years ago.

Oh my goodness, that is possibly the coolest Tiki Room thing I've ever laid eyes on.

Wow...I am really out of it. I actually forgot I had one of these. I need to get it out of the closet and up somewhere out of the reach of sticky, curious hands.

Thanks for the shout-out!
