They Came From Far and Fell in Love

November 24, 2014

From Long Island, NY, Baltimore, MD, and California, new and longtime Hess Toy Truck fans flocked to the first Mobile Museum stop in Pennsylvania at the Please Touch Museum in Philadelphia. 

The Mobile Museum was one of the best free and fun things to do with kids in Philly this weekend, as visitors found out over the course of two days at the Please Touch Museum.

A grandmother and grandson visiting family in Philadelphia from California went to the Saturday stop. The grandmother had never heard of the toy trucks before, but it quickly became clear that the grandson loved what he was seeing. Before they left, the grandmother said, “You’ve made two new collectors today!”

A family drove all the way from Long Island because they were unable to catch the Mobile Museum when it was there two weeks ago. The son brought along with him the first truck he was ever given to show off still in its box. It was a 1998 and he said that this year’s Collector’s Edition Hess Toy Truck is by far his favorite.
