Hess has announced a new addition to its Hess Toy Truck collectionMy Plush Hess Truck: 2022 Choo-Choo Train, the third in its plush toy series designed especially for its youngest fans. On sale exclusively at, the soft and durable green fabric train has colorful accents, lights and sounds. The $34.99 price includes free standard shipping* and Energizer batteries.


My Plush Hess Trucks are so popular that the first two releases in the series sold out – the snuggly 2020 Fire Truck and the playful 2021 Cement Mixer. Ideal for Easter, birthday, new baby gifts or early holiday shopping, the 2022 Choo-Choo Train is amazingly fun and safe for all ages with features that include squeeze-activated flashing LED lights, two familiar sing-along songs, an auto 15-minute shutoff nightlight, silent mode, and an easy-grab engine stack. The 2022 commemorative license plate and accompanying personalizable keepsake train engineer license tag follows the Hess Toy Truck collectability tradition.


“Hess has long been renowned for quality, safety, durability and innovation in play,” stated Hess Toy Truck General Manager Justin Mayer. “The My Plush Hess Truck is the only plush toy available anywhere that features lights and sounds and is safety approved for all ages, even newborns.”
