Hess today launched its 2023 holiday collectible trucks.
The police truck and cruiser pair also will cost $1 more than last year but shipping and Energizer batteries are still free.
The 2023 Hess Police Truck and Cruiser are two first-responder vehicles.
“The 2023 Hess Police Truck and Cruiser are a heroic pair of first responder vehicles. The green Police Truck is equipped with four realistic sounds, each with a unique flashing light combination, 55 colorful LED lights, and highly detailed chrome accents.
“The Police Truck’s rear door folds down to double as a ramp to unload the Cruiser, which features a slide-out battering ram and 17 lights, including a 270-degree rotating turret with spotlights. The action-ready Cruiser is powered by a speedy pull-back motor that races in flat or wheelie positions,” Hess said in a news release.
Hess said it will provide 20,000 toy trucks to classrooms nationwide with a STEM curriculum guide that provides lessons featuring the police truck and cruiser as a learning tool.
Teachers can apply for a free set of 12 toy trucks and download the guide online. Hess said it also will gift more than 10,000 toy trucks to police department toy drives.
Also available this year is the Plush Tugboat for younger children. The light-up, sing-along toy sells for $34.99 with free shipping and free Energizer batteries.
Last year’s flatbed truck with two hot rod racers was $41.99.
