I participated in a campaign on behalf of Hess Express. I received a promotional item to facilitate this review and as a thank you for participating.
When my siblings and I were little, our father worked in a neighborhood store and would always bring home treats for us to enjoy especially around the holidays. One year, he came home with a few Hess trucks for us to enjoy for Christmas but he explained to us that they were special because he was going to start a family tradition and buy the holiday Hess truck every single year for us to collect.
Even then, we understood that this was something special that was going to be shared between us and our father. True to his word, he brought home a new Hess truck every year while we were kids. The best thing was that, although they were collector’s items, he never stopped us from playing with them and we spent hours rolling them across the floor and turning their lights on and off.
When we received the opportunity to review the new 2013 Hess Toy Truck and Tractor, I knew that this was my chance to introduce my own children to this family holiday tradition that my father started all of those years ago. This year’s truck comes with a fully motorized multi-terrain tractor and is beautifully chrome detailed. Here are some of the cool specs on the new Hess Toy Truck and Tractor:
Truck Features Include:
- 45 lights that work in flash or steady mode
- Hidden, extendable rear loading ramp with sound effects
- 4 realistic sounds: ignition/idle, horn, backup alert, hydraulic lift
The self-propelled, multipurpose tractor has both front and rear buckets, and a fully motorized rubber track to take on the toughest terrain!
Tractor Features Include:
- 15 working lights
- Motorized forward / reverse motion
- Locking front bucket with release button
- 360° swiveling back bucket
As you can see from the photos and video that my son made, he learned how to use all of the truck’s and tractor’s features right away. He was just so tickled with all of their moving parts and the fact that they both light up. It really warmed our heart to see this new family tradition come to life. Make sure you head to your local Hess Express or even order them online and start your own family tradition this year!
