Gift Guide 2015

for THE YEAR 2015


You guys like gifts? 'Course ya do. And you like yetis? Naturally!

So listen up and let me tell you what I think the best yeti gifts are this year. And by year, you know I'm talking 'bout 2015.

It's time to GET YETI in 2015


Top pick is the Jeffers Pet Yeti, a steal at $10 with shipping:

New to this blog: Only $15 for this Bigfoot Snowsquatch Plush Stuffed Animal Toy in 10" variety, and $35 in the 26" variety:

 $20 for this Polariffic Yeti plush (from the Hallmark cartoon):

$25 for Yeti USB Heated Plush Handwarmers from ThinkGeek:

Only ~$3 for this snorkel yeti to decorate your aquarium and get your fish in the holiday mood:


$18 can be exchanged for this new game: "Yeti in My Spaghetti":

A cool $14 gets you this Yeti Attitude 2-Piece Fleece Pajama Set (Boys 4-10) from Kohl's:

$15-20 for Claire's iphone case with yeticorn - the snow cone lights up so you'll never lose it!

For $21 at Toys-R-Us, there's this decent Animal Planet playset:

And when price isn't a deterrent, this $250 made-to-order "Tibetan Yeti Rug" from Middle of Beyond is yowza:

If your recipient is an intellectual, how about Sykes' Nature of the Beast: The First Genetic Evidence on the Survival of Apemen, Yeti, Bigfoot and Other Mysterious Creatures into Modern Times?

And if not an intellectual, how about this steampunk comic book?: Lady Mechanika Tablet of Destinies #1

There's a Steampunk lady hunting yeti in it.

Or somewhere in between, how about: Cryptozoology Anthology: Strange and Mysterious Creatures in Men's Adventure Magazines?

Maybe your giftee likes to bake? There's: Cake My Day!: Easy, Eye-Popping Designs for Stunning, Fanciful, and Funny Cakes

For the younger lover of yeti, it's your lucky year! Look how many new books there are:

Pugs of the Frozen North

Dear Yeti

The Yeti Files 2

The Thing about Yetis

No Yeti Yet

Are We There, Yeti?

The Snow Beast

And, not out this year, an oldie from 2011, but still a goodie:   Encyclopedia Mythologica: Dragons and Monsters Pop-Up:

Has a fantastic yeti pop-up page

My Not Yeti suggestions for holiday buying are as follows:

1) This Nessie Ladle ($8):

2) This Octonauts yeti crab toy (blogged about here):

3) This Girl in Totoro costume plush (not sure where to get - Ebay?):

4) And most importantly, Chia Bigfoot:

A Wampa for the Holidays

How about a Wampa for the Holidays?  There's a lot of gift options for the wampa enthusiast this year.


Back in 1982, the wampa action figure was THE gift to give and to receive:

Now there's a brand spankin-new Wampa action figure!  Pretty special. Costs like $50. Jacked-up Luke Sold Separately.

Twenty dolla beanie, baby!

There's also this playset, Playskool Heroes Star Wars Galactic Heroes Echo Base Encounter.

For the bloodpainting fan, Bloody Wampa Funko figure was limited to 750.

Check it: new dog toys from Petco:


The Wampa's Tale: indie comic by Spencer Hawkes exploring his backstory:

Oh, and there's this new table-top game: Imperial Assault: Return to Hoth

Michal Ivan

And the Hoth Collector Set with Wampa plush included:

Disney Infinity 3.0 is out now, and wampa's in the game.

Finally, the Star Wars Where's the Wookiee Search and Find Book is like Where's Waldo but Star Wars themed.  Spend hours and hours of fun examining overly-detailed image spreads seeking a diminutive Chewbacca.

There's a Hoth battle page, and you can actually play "Where's Wampa?" instead.
