A family tradition of mine is to always get the Holiday Hess Trucks every year. There’s always a new one that comes out during the holidays. I have so many over the years. This year I had the chance in reviewing the 2016 2016 Hess Toy Truck And Dragster

2016 Hess Toy Truck And Dragster 
The Hess Toy Truck has been a holiday tradition since 1964, and is one of the longest running toy brand on the market. This year’s 2016 Hess Toy Truck And Dragster is a powerful, race-ready duo with sleek styling, drag-racing inspired sounds, over 50 brilliant lights, and an innovative design for wheelie-popping action!

The Truck is a mighty motorsport flatbed designed to transport the dragster to any racing event. Styled with a solid green lower body and green-accented white upper body, it is loaded with chrome detailing including a front grill, sunshield, side panels, and exhaust pipes. The cab houses 4 top-mounted buttons that activate 3 realistic sounds (ignition, horn, and an exciting race launch countdown) and the headlights, tail and running lights. A hidden ramp with slide-activated hydraulic sound ensures this duo can quickly get to the next dragstrip.

The oversized Dragster is the largest accompanying race car in the fleet’s history. Its innovative pull-back motor and tilt-activated weight transfer design allows the speedster to launch in either a flat or wheelie position. The racer features super bright LED headlights, a stylish spoiler, and chrome detailed hood-mounted air intake, side exhaust pipes and rear parachute box.

My youngest son, since he was a baby we have always gotten a Hess truck every year, and as he got older we got them for him for Christmas. He loves playing with them with his collection of action figures. As soon as he see that signature green wrapping paper he gets so excited to see the new Hess Truck
