The truck this year isn’t a truck at all – aptly, it’s a rescue helicopter, complete with working rotors, flashing lights and searchlights. A button opens up a cargo bay, which holds a small rescue truck with a pull-back motor, lights, and chrome detailing. For the first time this year, Hess is selling their annual holiday toy truck online, which is great for those on the West Coast (where Hess is not) and those who don’t really want to go to a Hess right now for fear of it being too crowded.
Fortunately, they won’t be rationing these guys. The 2012 Hess Helicopter and Rescue toy truck is available at Hess locations and online now for about $27.
