The Hess Truck is back, and it’s better than ever.
Every year Hess rolls out their latest truck in what is probably the easiest way to make money year after year.
They are not a toy company, but an oil and gas company, who just so happens to put out a yearly truck, just in time for the holidays.
I like the tradition. Those that collect them have something to look forward to year after year, and quite frankly, the trucks are really cool to play with.
When I was a kid I had a few of them, and I remember them to this day…and with the roadside Hess locations gone, is it bad that every kid knows their name because of the yearly song?
Nope. That just sounds like good marketing.
I had a few of these trucks including:
- 1995 Truck with Helicopter
- 1998 Rec Van with Motorcycle and Sand Buggy
- 1999 Space Shuttle Transport
If I wasn’t such an adult, I would still buy this every year, and recommend it as a good gift for kids ages 6+, just visit them online at hesstoytruck.com, and remember that Energizer batteries are included!
