We told you a month ago that a holiday tradition going back over 50 years and with roots right here at the Jersey Shore is coming back as always, and today is the day that the 2017 Hess Toy Truck goes on sale!

Not only that, but it's a first of its kind, as Hess introduces the very first dump truck in the Hess truck family. Here's what they have to say about the 2017 edition:

The Dump Truck features a hydraulic powered lifting bed, LED lights, 4 realistic sound effects, and a fold-down tailgate with slide-out ramp. The Loader, which has an extending excavator arm and bucket combination, self-propels in multiple directions via dual-track treads and a 270° rotating cab. Together, the duo boasts 350 parts – making it the heaviest and most complex Hess Toy Truck to date.

 

Of course, you can pick up your 2017 Hess Toy Truck at HessToyTruck.com as of right now!
