    I've not heard about it in relationship to the Poly, but I know that it can be done. It's a popular thing to do from Hawaii. Thongs too. They decorate them and sell them individually and you can send one as a post card. :yes:

    I would imagine if it can be done from the Poly, someone will come along soon to confirm it! :yes:

    I had one that a friend sent me when she stayed at the Poly and it was awesome. I did have to finally throw it away because it started to smell kind of funky after a couple of years though :(

    I also recv'd one from a friend several years back...the kids went wild over it.

    I've not seen them at the Poly (though it would make sense, I s'pose :yes: ) But I do recall seeing them at the Caribbean Beach Resort...

    You can send them from the Polynesian Resort. Just remember, they're pretty heavy, so shipping won't be inexpensive! Certainly more than a postcard stamp! But they do make pretty terrific gifts! My aunt & uncle sent me one from Hawaii in the early 60s and I had it until the mid-70s. :)

    Keith, Slowhand--I'm so proud of both of you for showing restraint. :lol:

    I have one! It's a pretty cool gift. I've seen them in the shops at the Poly, Carribean Beach and Coronado Springs. They mail them priority mail so in the US that is about $8.
