The Hess Toy Truck, one of the longest running toy brands on the market, has been a beloved holiday tradition for more than 50 years. It all began when New Jersey entrepreneur Leon Hess first purchased a second hand truck and started delivering fuel oil to homes in 1933. Shortly after opening the first Hess branded gas station in 1960, Hess decided to offer families a fun, high-quality toy for kids ‑ the Hess Toy Truck ‑ that would become a hallmark of the holiday season.
Hess wanted a toy truck made with outstanding craftsmanship and innovative electronics at a price families could afford. Fortunately – for collectors, enthusiasts and kids of all ages – the Hess Toy Truck tradition lives on today.
"The Hess Toy Truck is one of the longest running toys on the market, and a cherished holiday tradition," said Justin Mayer, Hess Toy Truck general manager. "We're excited to keep that tradition alive online and continue to bring smiles to kids' faces across the country for many holiday seasons to come."
This year, Hess has added a twist. Individually numbered Silver Edition Fire Truck and Ladder Rescues will be hidden in 100 random toy boxes.
