2012 Hess Helicopter & Rescue Review (Hess)

What It Is

Every holiday season, Hess comes out with a new vehicle. This year's vehicle is the Hess Helicopter & Rescue. The helicopter has motorized main and tail rotors as well as lights and three authentic sounds: ignition, takeoff, and fly by. The sounds and lights are activated by pressing one of the three buttons on the side of the helicopter. The working lights include running lights that work in flash or steady mode and high-powered pivoting search lights. The helicopter also has retractable landing gear. Press the two red buttons on the back to release the rescue vehicle from inside the helicopter. The rescue vehicle has real-rolling wheels, and it also lights up with the press of a button.
