2011 Hess Toy Truck and Racecar

Since 1964, the Hess Toy Truck has been a holiday tradition and it’s one of the longest running toy brands on the market.  And this year, for the first time, both the Hess Toy Truck and Race Car include lights and sound!  Plus this year’s truck has a 4-wheel spring suspension and pull-out ramp which activates a cool hydraulic sound.  The cab has three additional sound effects in addition to the flashing lights.  The Race Car, based on an American stock car, fits on the truck’s flatbed trailer for even more fun.  The car comes with a pull-back racing motor and is decorated with the Hess Express logo.  Push the race car’s gas cap to activate the flashing lights and car engine sound.
