Description: In 1975, Fisher-Price introduced a new series of toys that could follow children through and beyond preschool age, the Adventure Series. This series began with 4 sets, #304 Safari, #303 Rescue Truck, #305 Rescue Copter and #306 Sport Plane.

The Safari was the largest of the 4 new sets introduced in 1975. Complete with 19 play pieces, this set could keep children entertained for hours! The people figures used in this set are different from any other people that Fisher-Price had ever made to date because they have a jointed head and jointed arms and legs. These figures have "Fisher-Price" written on the inside of their leg. The animals are very similar to those used in the Little People series, such as the #991 Play Family Circus Train. These animals have jointed arms, legs and head and are very detailed.
