Here's an early Christmas present to all the Hess Toy Truck fans out there: The 2015 truck has been announced, and it will be a classic red rescue vehicle!
Firetrucks have long been a standard of Hess's yearly toys, but this will be the first fire-fighting truck since 2005. This year's truck is a stout vehicle that looks off-road ready and carries a smaller SUV ladder truck attached to the back.
We previously revealed that the truck would involve an extra-special feature for 2015: One hundred of the boxes will contain a special silver Hess truck, which is the same model firetruck, but completely colored silver and individually numbered as a collectible. The special edition will even include a certificate to receive one of the red trucks as well.
This will be the first year that there are no longer Hess stations to where you can purchase the toy, so Hess will be selling the truck primarily online at the Hess Store, but has set up a few retail locations in shopping malls across the northeast U.S. where a kiosk shaped like the original Hess truck will display the trucks! Whether online on at the malls listed below, each toy will cost $30.99 plus tax.
Purchase a Hess truck at these retail locations beginning November 12th: * New York: Queens Center, Kings Plaza, Green Acres and Broadway * New Jersey: Paramus Park, Woodbridge Center, Willowbrook and Cherry Hill * Pennsylvania: Willow Grove Park and Capital City
