What better way to usher in summer than with the hottest toy on the market? We’re thrilled to bring back the Hess Mini Toy Truck this year and it really is better than ever! The 2017 Mini Collection consists of three highly detailed, small-scale versions of popular holiday Hess Toy Trucks. We know we missed the last few years but we’re thrilled to bring back the Mini Collection with this special twist!
Kids are back in school, nights are brisk, leaves are changing colors and Halloween costume shopping is well under way. That means the holidays are just around the corner! Although Hess Trucks are loved all year round, we look forward to every holiday season in order to share the new yet familiar joy with our fans again. And of course before that, we’ll be sure to share some cool news about the 2016 Hess Toy Truck!
The amazing journey of the Hess toys all started with a 19-year-old, the Great Depression, a truck and a lot of determination.
Picture this: Dad gives you a soft nudge to wake you up early on Thanksgiving Day. While half in a dozing daze, you follow dad to the car and head over to your local Hess to stand in line. The weather is cold, but dad has a thermos of hot chocolate to keep you warm. Waiting in line, sipping hot chocolate – it’s all part of the special bonding time you get with dad every year in the moments before the Hess Toy Truck goes on sale. Those moments are the Hess Toy Truck history. That’s the history of many of our fans – either as the dad or the boy in this scene who may very well be a dad by now.
As Valentine’s Day approaches, it is the time of year to show your affection to your loved ones and likewise we wanted to express our love to all of our Fans. This month’s blog shares some special moments on how fans like yourself have lovingly invited Hess into your families. Thank you all for being our special someone this month and all year long!
We want to start by wishing all of our fans a very Happy 2016! As we turn the page on a new year, every January we reflect on the most recent holiday season, which, of course, is our favorite time of year because…well, we get to spend it with YOU! All year long, we work towards creating a unique toy truck that both our long time dedicated fans and the newest tikes joining our fandom can enjoy during the holiday season.
