The built-in LED lighting is one of my favorite features of the Hess Toy Truck, and this year is certainly no exception. The lights are bright, and the sound is impressive - it doesn't sound like a toy, which is something I've noticed for a few years now. Our youngest daughter, Finley, is our resident toy truck enthusiast, and she gives each one a personality and a voice - very much like she does with her dolls and action figures, and it's adorable. She uses them to work together - showing teamwork - as they keep her play city running strong!

- 26 total lights that work in flash or steady mode, including super bright LED headlights

With each passing year, we look forward to the surprise that comes with a new truck to add to our collection, and when the girls play, it becomes a busy scene at Rock Father HQ. The Hess Dump Truck and Loader have taken their place in the fleet. What will they accomplish today? That's for the imagination of a child to decide!
The 2017 Hess Toy Truck is available while supplies last at HessToyTruck.com. It's pictured here with the ReadySetz Urban Playset, which I reviewed here. As always, I cannot stress enough that if you want these - buy them right away. Supplies are limited, and when they're gone, they're gone.
