Since 1964, the Hess Toy Truck has become a cherished gift of the holiday season, a family tradition for generations and one of the longest running toy brands on the market. A different model is unveiled every year and every year the Hess Toy Truck sells out! I have such great childhood memories of my grandfather giving my brother the new Hess truck each year for Christmas. It was always something my brother looked forward to. My own son received a few Hess Trucks over the years. It’s such a fun tradition!
This years Hess Toy Truck will be revealed around Thanksgiving and Hess is running a super fun giveaway for the unveiling of the new truck.
