The Hess Toy Truck has been a holiday tradition since 1964, and is one of the longest running toy brands on the market. This year’s Hess Toy is a red Fire Truck with oversized tires, swiveling chrome-detailed fire hose nozzles, LED lights including a high-powered pivoting LED searchlight, a slide-out ramp and 4 realistic sound effects.
