History – Hess Toy Company
"In the early 1960's Leon Hess, founder of the company, wanted to provide a fun, high quality and affordable toy for families during the holiday season. The first Hess Toy Truck, introduced in 1964, was a tanker that could be filled with water and emptied through its delivery hose. At a retail price of $1.29, including batteries, the truck was a great value and became an instant success, this truck can now fetch up to $2,000! His creative genius and attention to detail made the Hess Toy Truck an exciting holiday tradition and a collector's item for boys and girls of all ages.
Today, over forty nine years later, the Hess Toy Truck still maintains the original commitment to quality, detail and value. Models have included fire engines, helicopters, a police car, an airplane and even a space shuttle. Each year the truck is introduced with a distinctive holiday television commercial “The Hess Truck's back, and it's better than ever!” — and, more recently, with the Hess Toy Truck Float in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.
The Hess Toy Truck has become a lasting family tradition that extends across generations."
Q: "Is the toy safe for children to play with?"
A: "Each toy is backed by Hess Corporation’s commitment to extremely high standards of quality and safety. We systematically subject our toys to rigorous quality, safety, and durability tests to meet American Society for Testing and Materials International F963 standards for children’s products. Additionally, we test each paint delivery coming into our manufacturing facilities to ensure they are lead free. We are proud of our history of providing safe toys that children and collectors can enjoy for many years. Due to small parts, we do not recommend Hess Toys be given to children 3 years old and younger."
