This year’s Hess Toy Truck isn’t a truck at all, and it’s officially landed!
The 2021 Hess Cargo Plane and Jet joins the iconic fleet of green-and-white vehicles, and if you’re like us, you can probably hear the jingle with just a mention of the Hess Toy Truck.
A featured pick in the Toy Insider‘s 16th annual Holiday Gift Guide for kids ages 3 and up, the Hess Cargo Plane and Jet is a classic toy set that features lights and sounds and comes packed with six Energizer batteries included to make gift-giving easy. As in recent years, this year’s set is available exclusively at hesstoytruck.com while supplies last — which tends to be not very long.
Measuring nearly 14-inches long and with a wingspan of 15-inches, the Cargo Plane is the biggest vehicle ever offered in the Hess Toy Truck collection. The heavy-load transport aircraft features a white body with a Hess Green undercarriage. The Plane also features bold green striping; a sparkling chrome nose cone and accents; six turbine engines; free-rolling, foldable landing gear; and 32 high-visibility LED lights! Kids can press the taillight to open the rear cargo bay doors revealing the Jet inside. The cargo bay is illuminated and features a hidden, slide-out ramp.
The Jet includes high-quality, motion-reactive sounds that kids will hear whenever they tilt the toy. Three buttons on top control the engine lights and activate additional sounds. The spring-loaded wings are retractable for easy storage in the Cargo Plane.
The Hess Toy Truck is a legendary holiday tradition that has grown well beyond the East Coast and is now something that families across the U.S. look forward to. This year’s 2021 Hess Cargo Plane and Jet is an incredible — and massive —addition to the fleet that kids will love, and collectors will covet for years to come.
