And the 2016 Hess Toy Truck is…

Just kidding, this is our belated April Fools blog! This year’s toy truck is still a secret! Although the Hess Toy Truck design changes almost every year, keeping each year’s new truck a surprise until the holiday season has remained a constant. Whether it was revealed through signs put up at Hess gas stations, having social media fans unlock pieces of a picture of the toy on Facebook, or announcing the toy on NBC’s “TODAY” national morning show, maintaining that buildup to the surprise of the design will always be a special element to the Hess Toy Truck. This month, take a drive with us as we look back at the history of the reveal itself. And if you’re wondering about the design of this year’s truck, well, that’s top secret…for now!

Kiosk Adventures!

After 20 years of buying Hess Toy Trucks at gas stations for their kids, Richard and Mary Simon weren’t about to end their tradition just because the Hess gas station near their East Brunswick, NJ, home closed recently. So when their daughter told them about a new way to shop in-person for their beloved toy, by going to one of 10 kiosks at malls in New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania, they knew they’d found an easy way to keep up their decades-long tradition. The Simons went to the kiosk at Woodbridge Center mall on Friday where they bought two trucks, one for their 40-year-old daughter and one for their 38-year-old son, which they will give to them on Thanksgiving as they have done for the past couple of decades.
