The 1964 Hess Truck Tanker Trailer

I really appreciate the Hess Toy Truck legacy.  This is a tradition that dates back to 1964 when the first Hess Toy Truck was introduced. The first truck was an 18-wheel fuel oil tanker painted in the traditional Hess dark green with white and yellow accents.

The 2007 Monster Truck With Motorcycles 

My oldest actually received his 1st when he was a baby.  He got the 2007 Monster Truck With Motorcycles from his Great Aunt, and he still plays with it to this day.

Does your family own any of the Hess Trucks?  If so, which make and model?

I can’t wait to see my son’s reaction when he opens his present!



  1. OMIGOSH! My nephew would love one of these! It seems to be fully equipped!

  2. Looks like a fun toy! Know my sons would love this, for sure!

  3. My little boy would love to play with this! Maybe Santa will bring him one…

  4. That is so cute! What a great gift idea!

  5. I imagine these would be great collector items and a fun toy for any little boy or girl.

  6. Having boys must be awesome, because I would totally play with these cool toys. My youngest daughter would happily join me if she was just a wee bit younger too.

  7. I know a ten year old around my house who would love to get his hands on that tractor.

  8. I have such great memories from my childhood and the Hess truck that I couldn’t help it giving it to my son right away when it arrived. As predicted, he loved it and has been playing with it since we opened the box.
