2016 Hess Toy Truck and Dragster!
Joining our 5th annual Holiday Gift Guide is the 2016 Hess Toy Truck and Dragster. The Hess Toy Truck has been around for many years and each year they bring out a new one. This year, they created a race duo complete with the dragster.
With over 50 lights and drag racing sounds, kids are sure to love this set. But it’s great for adults too. My husband is a big fan of drag racing and of course he wouldn’t be playing it, but instead it will sit up on a shelf on display.
The oversized dragster has wheelie bars and do can do wheelies. It is also the largest in the fleets history. The 2016 Hess Toy Truck and Dragster are in the traditional Hess colors, solid green lower body and solid white upper body. The chrome detail includes the front grill, sunshield, side panels and exhaust pipes.
There are four buttons mounted on the top that activate ignition, horn and exciting race launch countdown. The duo can get to the next race quickly with a slide activated hydraulic sound.
The kids (or adults) will have launching the dragster by pulling back on it whether in a wheelie position or flat launch position. The dragster looks just like the real thing with bright LED headlights, stylish spoiler, hood mounted air intake, side exhaust pipes and a rear parachute box.
