50th Anniversary Day 24: Search for the Abominable Snowman

Released in 1973, The Search for the Abominable Snowman was an exclusive for Sears. The set was packed full of gear to outfit your Adventurer. This included a winter parka and pants, snowshoes, gloves, skis, poles, binoculars, rifle, crate, sled and net. Lastly, playing the role of the abominable snowman was a repainted pygmy gorilla.

This is the last of the ‘’beast hunt trilogy’’ (not an official term) – along with White Tiger Hunt and Capture of the Pygmy Gorilla – and was one of the first sets I wanted to do for this project.

Enjoy!
