My grandmother and grandfather would always buy us kids the Hess Truck every year, and I have to admit that I kind of miss it. Each year it was always fun to see what kind of truck Hess would release not only are these wonderful to collect, but they are super fun to play with. Since 1964, Hess Toy Truck has been a holiday tradition for many families, and there is no better time to start your collection this year. On November 1st, the 2015 Hess Fire Truck and Ladder Rescue went on sale online. For $30.99 including free shipping and five Energizer batteries you can jump-start your collection.
This years truck is everything that I remember it has been years since I actually held on in my hand, but it brings back so many wonderful memories that still last to this day. This year’s Hess Toy is a red Fire Truck with oversized tires, swiveling chrome-detailed fire hose nozzles, LED light including a high-powered pivoting LED searchlight, a slide-out ramp, and four realistic sound effects.
The accompanying Ladder Rescue truck features a rotating extension ladder with a movable nozzle and push activated friction motor.
Everything works brilliantly, and I have never been disappointed with the quality of the Hess Toy Truck line. Hess is adding a new surprise this year. 100 Lucky customers will find an individually numbered Silver Edition Fire Truck and Ladder Rescue when they open their 2015 Hess Toy Truck Package. This would be utterly fantastic to find!! Here are a couple of pictures of what the truck looks like when it is lite up.
In all, I would totally recommend the 2015 Hess Fire Truck and Ladder Rescue. This is an excellent way to start a tradition with your family and friends. These bad boys are very nicely made so no fear when the little ones would rather play with the truck then let them sit on a self.
