A New Jersey Icon: The Hess Toy Truck Hits 50

A New Jersey Icon: The Hess Toy Truck Hits 50

SPECIAL TO NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM

This past weekend I received a call to action postcard about the 50th anniversary of a collectible icon; The Hess Toy Truck.

It has stayed true to its brand; solid, well designed always with a surprise or two, and always with batteries included. Kids, especially boys, of almost every generation love the trucks, and as they get older even keep it on the holiday list as a collectable even in places where Hess gas stations at least may be a thing of the past.
