2010 Exclusive Hess Truck with Jet
Price:$32.69+ Free shipping with Amazon Prime

My 5yo son got this for his b-day. This set was extremely inexpensive compared to other similar items and delivers so much more. There are two buttons on the truck to make the lights flash and about 4 buttons on the plane to make all kinds of sounds like taking off, landing, and flying around. There is also another button on the bottom of the plane to keep those noises going without having to push buttons if your child wants to fly it around for hours. The seller shipped it out incredibly fast, it got here in great shape, and it very durable for a 5 yo. If you have a careful toddler or preschooler, it would be just as fine for them, though there are parts (like wings) that come off so you'd need to provide supervision (as with anything) for a younger child.

Update: It's been a year and half since we bought this truck. It has been played with by 5 year olds and 2 year olds and has not broken. It still works. My 6 year old has donated lots of his old toys, but this is one toy he wanted to keep!

Gave this as an early Christmas present to my friend's son who is crazy for anything having to do with trucks or planes. Though it was a little pricey for a gift to a little boy, it was hard to resist the "two-fer" that it offered on his hitlist. And boy was it worth it. He LOVE LOVE LOVED it. The sounds it made were awesome and the truck and jet were obviously high quality. He played with it, for hours until he had to leave. We'll see how it shakes out after Christmas - but I'm pretty I get the award for best gift this year. :-)

This toy was built incredibly well. My 3-y.o. grandson loves it! The lights and sounds are impressive.

We bought this for our 5 year old son who loves airplanes. This is a very high quality toy. It is well made and will last a long time. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is because of the airplane wings. They come off so it could fit into the box. They also often come off while he is playing with it. Sometimes he can't get them back on himself. We are able to help him, but I wonder over time if they connections will not work in the end.

My son loves it! Very sturdy, it's better quality than any of his other trucks, and he loves the jet with its lights and real jet sounds! Will be purchasing other Hess trucks.

Awesome. Crazy jet sounds. Lights. Awesome. Just don't accidentally cut the plastic straps holding on the jet wings. They are NOT part of the packaging!!!

I got one of these for my son (5 years old) and one for my nephew (3 years old), as well. They both love them. They have all kinds of lights and sounds, and are the perfect gift for a little boy. There is a lot of things to interact with and a lot of ways to play, while at the same time, the truck is not so large that it's one of those toys you can never find a place for. Even my daughter (1 year old) and her little friends like playing with it because of the lights and sounds.

My F-in-L gave my son (3 yr old) the Helicopter from 2012/2013 at Christmas. I was so impressed by the quality and had never seen this type of promotional toy before. I looked into them and found there was one for each year. I am sending them as gifts now and have collected about 8 of the toys. Incredible lights/sounds, nothing like a cheaply built toy you might expect, seriously good value and well built. 3 or 33, you will be impressed and want more of them.

Got this for my godson, and he really liked it! The jet makes cool engine sounds and lights flash. The truck has flashing lights but makes no sound. It would have been better had the truck also made sounds (boys love sounds!). It's a well constructed toy that I expect will last him a long time.
