Image and video hosting by TinyPic Looking for the perfect gift for a truck obsessed little boy or girl? The new Hess Toy Truck and Jet is now on sale (and perfect for a holiday gift). This is the first time that an aircraft has been part of a Hess Truck set. 14-wheeler tractor trailer features a flatbed trailer with hydraulic lift and runway lights that doubles as a launch pad for the accompanying jet. The truck has a launch ramp, 42 lights with 3 light settings — countdown sequence, steady and flashing mode. The Jet has retractable landing gear, 4 motion-activated sounds (climb, dive, left or right bank, and level flight), 2 button-activated sounds (engine ignition and take-off), 13 lights (including a front spot light and button-activated wing and cargo lights), and a flashing light mode.

The Hess Toy Truck has been a holiday tradition since 1964. Find it at Hess and Hess Express retail stores retailing for $25.99 plus tax – Energizer® batteries included. In this day and age, the price is very reasonable and the batteries will last for a long time.
