From the Official Announcement: The Mini Collection includes three Miniature Hess Toy Trucks sold in a single display package. Each vehicle included in the set will be a fully detailed, small-scale version of one of the popular holiday Hess Toy Trucks, equipped with working lights and a detachable display base – just like the previous miniature toys. The designs included in the 2017 Mini Collection will be revealed when it goes on sale June 1 at 10 a.m. EST. The three-vehicle set will be sold exclusively at www.hesstoytruck.com for $26.99 with free standard shipping and 9 Energizer® batteries included.
The return of the Mini Hess Toy Truck marks the second new initiative of the year for the Hess Toy Truck program, ahead of the anticipated 2017 holiday toy. Earlier this year, Hess announced that it had created, in partnership with Baylor College of Medicine, a free STEM education curriculum and toy truck learning kit for teachers nationwide. The 500 free STEM kits were made available by online application and demand was so overwhelming that there were over 10,000 applicants in under 48 hours.
