Our first Gift Guide selection is a really cool toy that I’ve written about HERE and HERE. The reason that I am making the Hess Toy Truck our first selection in this year’s Gift Guide is that the folks at the Hess Corporation report that it is selling very quickly and may no longer be in stock if you wait a week or three.
This year’s Hess Toy Truck is a beautiful flatbed fire engine carrying a Fire Rescue SUV. Both vehicles have really cool lights and sounds and as always with the Hess Truck, Energizer batteries are included. This is a great toy for all ages. Younger kids will love the flashing lights and sounds and parents will enjoy the fact that these are very durable, well made toys. Collectors will also enjoy the craftsmanship, as well as the collectibility of these limited edition collector vehicles. In addition to that, these would also make a great gift for any current or retired firefighters who appreciate a well crafted souvenir of their work.
Unless you are near one of the select malls in the Northeast, the only way you’re going to get your hands on a Hess Toy Truck this year is to order it directly from their website. The cost is $30.99 plus tax. Shipping is included.
