Making a New Tradition @hesstoytruck #ad #MakingMyList

If you know me, I am all about making memories and incorporating traditions with Broxton.  I want him to look back and remember these things... and maybe start new traditions with his family years and years from now!   We do things like movie night and arts and crafts and fun things... But we have started a new one (last year) that even my dad is a bit jealous about!

Our new tradition started last year when I was able to share with you the 2013 Hess Toy Truck.  Broxton thought it was the coolest thing and it is always so fun to see him playing with it.  (My dad may or may not have been a tad bit jealous when he came to visit and saw it.)   I knew then that the quality of this truck was amazing and that we would need to get another one when they were revealed.  Side note- I love that they do a big reveal as to the new truck each year!   That just makes it so much more exciting!  So, each year... I plan on getting a new Hess Toy Truck for Broxton to add to his collection!  
When it arrived, I was quick to open it to check it out... Marc and I were both in awe at how cool it is. I still don't know what I like the most... The real life sounds it makes or the fact that it lights up just like a real Hess truck.  They spare nothing when creating this collectors item.  Marc and I had to press all the buttons, make all the sounds and then quickly put it up before Broxton came in and saw it!  (This will be a Christmas gift this year!)  

The 2014 Hess Toy Truck and Space Cruiser with Scout marks the 50th anniversary of the Hess Toy Truck. The sleek space cruiser, with retractable landing gear, features 3 buttons to activate sounds and flashing lights.

The truck itself is pretty cool... add to it a space cruiser on top and Broxton is going to be thrilled.. but that is just the start!  Inside the space cruiser is a little scout that is also removable and will provide lots of running around the house as the toys are "flying" and doing who knows what!  I can not wait to see his face when he gets to open this!   This is a great thing to start collecting at your house!   (Head on over and buy one now!  It is only $29.99 plus tax... and the batteries are already included!   Free Shipping too!)  Since it is the 50th Anniversary, they have also released a hard cover 50 Years of Hess Toy Trucks Book filling you in on the history and tradition of the Hess Toy Trucks!   
Do you have any toy collections that you add to each year?  Are you familiar with Hess?  


  1. My son has been asking for one of these, so he'd love to get it for Christmas!

  2. My mom gets the boys special ornaments - geared towards their interest. They like getting them out every year to put up on the tree. I also have those holiday puzzles.

    That truck does look like fun!

  3. You already know I'm a fan of these!! My 2nd oldest collected them for years.I did finally ask my MIL if we could have ours back (is that rude? lol) and she gave them to us but they were ruined. :( My fault, not hers. I should have kept them here.

  4. I saw the TV ad for this truck and it looks really cool!

    My parents buy us an ornament each year, but we don't purchase anything collectible on our own.
