We are huge Hess Truck fans in this house. It started when my son Ben was 3 years old and really, really into trucks. At 7, he still loves them. Now his little sister and brother love the Hess Trucks too.
This year, Hess released the Hess Helicopter and Rescue ($26.99). (Read More after the jump).
What did my 7 year old think? Take a look at our video.
- Real lights and multiple sound features
- Motorized Rotors
- Retractable landing gear
- Adjustable spotlights
Note: The Rotors on the helicopter spin very fast, but are made of plastic (your child is NOT going to hurt themselves, I personally stuck my hand in them while they were spinning).
The Rescue Truck (which fits inside the back of the helicopter)
- Friction motor
- Real lights
- Retractable emergency lights
And the best part – it comes with Energizer batteries already installed (so you don’t have to frantically load batteries while your child waits).
Get the 2012 Hess Helicopter and Rescue Vehicle at Hess Gas Stations or online at Hess Toy Truck for $26.99.
Thank you to the Hess Corporation for sending a sample for review.
