The tradition keeps on (fire) truckin’…
December 8, 2015
Today we’re excited to announce that we have officially sold out of the 2015 Hess Fire Truck and Ladder Rescue! We’re thrilled that you love the Hess Fire Truck and Ladder Rescue as much as we do.
The Hess Toy Truck was originally created as a way for Leon Hess to thank loyal customers of Hess gas stations. And we are continuing that tradition of gratitude here: Thank you for your continued support of the Truck by purchasing in our new sales channels this year. You’ve all demonstrated that it’s not about where you buy the truck, but about who you buy it for – whether that’s yourself or your family members.
We love reading your stories and we’ve highlighted some our favorites below, including that of a lucky Silver Edition winner. Just because the 2015 Hess Fire Truck and Ladder Rescue is sold out doesn’t mean this blog is going away. We’ll be here every month so be sure to continue to share your reactions, favorite Hess Toy Truck memories and more on our Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram pages. Don’t forget to tag @hesstoytruck and use #2015HessToyTruck as your story might be the next one to be featured on this blog! And last but not least, remember to share your holiday pictures with us! We love to see the delight on the faces of our fans on Christmas morning or Hanukkah evening…
Cindy Wooding Del Rio: An early Christmas gift for my son who woke up not feeling well Thanksgiving morning. This cheered him up. Keeping up the tradition. That’s the 2005 and 2015!!
Mary Ellen Collins Quinn: Wouldn’t be Christmas without a Hess Toy Truck from Grandpa! Just ordered one for my dad to give to my son – the annual tradition continues! Thank you for continuing to make such a high quality, affordable toy.
David Turpin: My son got his first Hess truck 8 years ago. One each year since, plus any other ones I come across, great gifts for anyone who appreciates a QUALITY product. It’s hard to find toys/collectable items this well built any more. Love our Hess Truck collection!
Julie Palm Dion: I just want to give a shout out to @HessToyTruck. We ordered our first Hess Truck for our 3 year old son and are excited to give it to him for Christmas. We just happened to be one of the lucky ones to win one of the 100 Silver Hess Toy Trucks!
Rory Shallis: My Dad has gifted me a Hess truck every Christmas and I’m 34. Each Christmas morning it’s the only gift I actually look forward to, search out under the tree for, and unwrap first. Hess trucks still bring me the same excitement and enjoyment as they did when I was a tot. Have my office wall decorated with 34 years of trucks. Each on its own shelf. The red 2015 firetruck will look great. The limited edition silver fire truck would look even better!
Marian Stavinga Trossman: I am very happy that the Hess Toy Truck tradition continues and that I was able to purchase them online since our local Hess gas station closed. I hope my grandchildren are Silver Edition Winners! But even if they don’t win the silver they are still winners to receive the 2015 Hess Toy Truck! Merry Christmas Hess!
Donnamarie Perez DeGenova: It’s been a traditional Christmas gift that my son has gotten since he was born whose now 10. Our local firehouse drives Santa on the firetruck to personally deliver it to our house on Christmas Eve. He is still looking forward for this years visit!
