By 9pm on Halloween night I had seen 3 Christmas commercials. While Thanksgiving hasn't been eliminated, Christmas is on the brain.

One of the most popular and traditional Christmas gifts is available once again. Growing up my brother and I (mostly my brother) always looked forward to our Grandparents giving us a Hess Truck. I'm sure going into my parents attic there are all the Hess Trucks dating back to 1987.

The 2018 Hess Truck is now available for purchase at a cool $33.99. This year it's a Hess Truck RV, ATV and Motor Bike. According to a press release this years Hess Truck includes a new free download feature. The download will be a "science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) curriculum with 8 lessons featuring the 2018 Hess Toy Truck. The curriculum can be used by teachers and parents as a learning tool to help teach core STEM concepts."

It's definitely updated since the 2008 edition:

In passed years we were able to buy our trucks at Hess gas stations, however in the past few years they have been changed to Speedways. You can purchase your 2018 Hess Truck at

Is the Hess Truck a holiday tradition in your family? How many do you own?
