2013 Hess Toy Truck and Tractor | Holiday Gift Guide

If you are looking for a gift for a boy ages 3 and up then I highly recommend the 2013 Hess Toy Truck and Tractor.  The Hess toy trucks have dated back to 1964 and continue that tradition today with the 2013 edition, a toy truck and tractor combo.

The truck is detailed with chrome elements and feature 45 lights that work in flash or steady mode, hidden  extendable rear loading ramp with sound effects, and four realistic sounds:  ignition/idle, horn, back up alert, and hydraulic lift.  

The tractor features  front and back  buckets and a fully motorized rubber track along with 15 working lights and 360 degrees rotation.  All this equals Fun for your child on Christmas morning.  

Also, new for this year is the Hess app! Available for IOS and Android, this app features 
  • Three unique environments at launch, with more to come in future releasesPlayers will explore the Snowy Mountains, Red Desert and Volcanic Island at launch, each with unique environmental features.
  • Five unique tractors: Throughout the game, players will be able to earn Hess Cash and purchase new tractors with unique attributes: HARDHAT, the 2013 model; SPEEDY, a souped up racer; BOUNCER, a dune buggy-style tractor;STRETCH, an ultra-long tractor that can grab hard-to-reach coins; JUGGERNAUT, a massive tank-like model.
  • 200 vehicle upgrades: Boost your tractors' speed, acceleration, in-air handling (perfect for flips) and more as you progress and earn Hess Cash (for use within the game app, only).
