The golden age of Tiki was from the mid 1950s to the mid 1970s. It was the most strongest phenemonen in American pop culture because it became realised and visible in several areas.

In the 1920s the "Hula Girl" became the dominant symbol of men´s realized dreams: passion, warmth, sex and uncomplicated love. Men liked this "Hula Girl" very much because it is the total opposite to war, fight and death. Therefore bowling alleys, restaurants, bars, apartments and hotels were build after the Tiki culture´s idea of Polynesian simplyness and escapism. The main symbols and main trends were:
- the "Hula Girl" - the rum cocktail; especially after the prohibition, fruity and tropical rum cocktails were famous - in the late 1950s the ancient Hawaiian sport "surfing" became popular - the Polynesian gods, the so called "Tikis" So the modern America combined its own imagination of ancient exotic culture with its own culture. The launch of the today well known Tiki mug completed the whole Tiki culture during the 1950s. But no one knows when and where these, so called Tiki mugs were designed and firstly appeared.
