This tissue box is lots fun with being able to pull tissues out of an Easter Island statue's nose! But the danger behind this statue is nothing to sneeze at.

Be careful if you display this vertically as shown in the amazon photo. Whenever someone goes to pull a tissue out, the entire thing tips over very easily. This tissue box is best displayed laying down horizontally, which is a shame, because the real Easter Island heads aren't laying down, they are standing up.

If you really want to stand it up, try putting some strong adhesive tape underneath it to prevent it from falling over while pulling out a tissue. Otherwise you'll have a running nose and a falling tissue box.

I was actually just looking up tissue boxes, not tissue box covers when I came across this. The cover fits over a standard size tissue box and is held in place using an elastic strap in the back. It does look better when its standing up on its side, that way everyone can see the face on the box. However to do so you have to somehow fix it in place so that it doesn't fall - its top heavy and will topple over as soon as you try to take a tissue out. I took it to work and it sparked a lot of smiles and laughs. I fixed it in place actually using a bent paper clip. I hooked the paper clip through one of the side handles on the box then hooked the other side of the paper clip to a joint in my cubicle wall where two walls connect. To hide all of this I used fake leaves and now my box looks like its growing leaves out of its head too!

Head's up: If you do buy this, make sure that when you start using it to pull the tissues out at an angle. The way the nose is shaped, its better to pull the tissues down - with a new box of tissues, the first few always come out torn in half.

This tissue box is so much fun but it will tip over if you display it upright. It could be wall mounted if you're clever - just screw it into the wall through the inside and fasten the Moai to the container. Too bad it doesn't come with hardware just for that purpose.

BTW, I don't know why Amazon calls this a "tiki" when it is clearly an Easter Island "Moai". Another reviewer said the Moai don't lay down, well... they do. So even if you do display this on it's back you're still going to enjoy it.

Next they need to come up with a matching cup dispenser that looks like a Moai with a "topknot" where you pull the cup out of the top of it's head. I'd buy that. 5 Stars for uniqueness.

My solution to the problem of placing the box upright:

1) Get a plain old stamped metal bookend (basically a piece of thin steel bent at a right angle, causing a kind of "tongue" to extend on one side). Mine is about 4.5" wide and 4.5" high.
2) Place tongue piece between bottom of tissue box and inside bottom of Tiki holder.
3) Set upright. Stand back. Admire.
4. For greater stability, place a can on the part of the bookend that extends out from behind the holder. I'm using Steen's Sugar Syrup, but I imagine canned spinach will work as well. Exercise your creatvity.

I too have this great tissue holder and I solved the problem of it being upright by wedging it between several books on a book shelf in our family room. It works great!

Verified Purchase
I saw one of these tissue boxes at my optometrist's office and it was so kitschy, I just had to get one. After finding it on Amazon and reading the reviews, it sounded like there have been a few different versions of this box that have gone out over the years it's been available. Mine arrived with the face detached from the box (poor gluing job) and a flimsy mounting hook included that was not long enough to reach a wall stud and not strong enough to hold up the weight of the box.

I really wanted to display this upright on the wall of my guest bathroom, so I came up with a way to mount it securely using a loop of self-adhesive fuzzy Velcro with a punched hole to hang on a strong picture hook. Once I glued the face back onto the box and finished the mounting attachments, I wanted to hide the picture hook and Velcro loop. I got the idea from another reviewer to attach leaves to the top of the box. I used fake palm leaves that I found at Michael's craft store, which worked perfectly and looks great with the stone head.

The result is even cuter/funnier than I anticipated and I love it! Check the photos I added to see what it looks like. It's a little tricky to get the tissues to dispense smoothly from the giant uni-nostril but I think having this mounted on the wall makes it work a little better because of the downward angle of pull.

The reason I am rating this only 4 stars is because of the condition the tissue box arrived in and all the tinkering I had to do to get it just right. Still, I would recommend it to anyone with a sense of humor who likes whimsical objects around their home.

This is a very cool item which we mounted in our downstairs beach-themed bathroom. Everyone loves Rudy!

We purchased this item from a B&M retailer, but when I came to Amazon hoping to find instructions on how to mount it, I came up short. After giving it some thought, I came up with the perfect solution:

I had a 1" square wooden dowel, which, when trimmed lengthwise, fits perfectly under the top rim of the tissue holder. I painted it black, anchored it into the wall, and when the tiki head is placed on it, it sits perfectly and can be taken down to replace empty tissue boxes quickly and easily. To keep the tissue holder in place, I screwed a black washer on the front of the wooden dowel, sticking up JUST ENOUGH to create a lip so that the tissue holder can't slide, and is held nicely in place.

I am going to try to upload a photo or two if I can figure it out. Please leave comments or questions if these instructions are unclear.
