2013 Hess Truck Review

Hess sent me a Hess Truck in exchange for my honest review. Regardless all opinions are 100% my own.

I recently had the pleasure of reviewing the 2013 Hess Toy Truck & Tractor. The Hess Truck has been a family tradition in our home for many years, and even when I was a child I always got the new Hess Truck every year for Christmas. We plan to keep this tradition going in our family for as long as the Hess Truck is available.









Hess Truck has always been known for their quality and amazing craftsmanship. Detailed truck and trailer with loading ramp and bold white and green colors. Custom designed to haul a versatile, self-propelled tractor. And as always battier powered by Energizer batteries which have always come included for as long as I can remember. Also comes with motorized rotors and cool sounds! The Hess truck even has real working lights. The self-propelled, multipurpose tractor has both front and rear buckets, and a fully motorized rubber track to take on the toughest terrain!





Heavy-duty truck and fully motorized multi-terrain tractor. Hess trucks have always been made very durable and can take a beating. In my opinion these are great for boys, girls and anyone who loves to collect.

Truck Features Include:

  • 45 lights that work in flash or steady mode
  • Hidden, extendable rear loading ramp with sound effects
  • 4 realistic sounds: ignition/idle, horn, backup alert, hydraulic lift

  • 15 working lights

History of the Hess Truck

In the 1960′s a man named Leon Hess, wanted to provide a fun and affordable toy for all families for the holiday season. The first Hess Truck was then introduced in 1964. This truck was a tanker that could be filled with water and then emptied through its delivery hose. The retail price back then was only $1.29,  which also included the batteries. This was a great value back then, and became an instant huge success. His creative genius and attention to detail is what made the Hess Toy Truck an exciting holiday tradition and a collector’s item for boys and girls of all ages.

Today, now over forty years later, the Hess Toy Truck still keeps it’s original commitment to quality. With detail and value in every Hess Truck. Some models from the past where fire engines, helicopters, a police car, an airplane and even a space shuttle. Each year the truck is something new with a distinctive holiday television commercial “The Hess Truck’s back, and it’s better than ever!” — and, more recently, with the Hess Toy Truck Float in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.

The Hess Toy Truck has become a lasting family tradition that extends across generations.
