2013 Hess Toy Truck and Tractor Review (Hess Corporation)

What It Is

The Hess truck has been a staple since 1964 when it first came out, and it's become a very popular collectible during the holiday season. The first one cost $1.29, and while this year's truck costs a little bit more than that, it also features a lot more. This year's Hess truck is a truck and also a tractor. The truck has three different buttons to push to hear different sound effects: engine revving, horn, loading dock beeping sounds. Kids can also turn on the tractor and watch it move forward or backward. Kids can also lift the tractor loader up and down.

Is It Fun?

The Hess toys are a tradition each holiday season. With this year's holiday toy, kids are getting two toys in one. With so many realistic features and sounds, kids will have a lot of fun imagining all sorts of scenarios with this truck and tractor.

This toy is not age-graded, but we recommend it for ages 3 and up.
