Hess Debuts 2020 Ambulance and Rescue Playset

Hess has debuted their Ambulance & Rescue just in time for the holidays.  Our First Responders have been our heroes this year so it is fitting that kids will have hours of fun saving the city!

 The heroic first responder vehicles were designed to deliver aid wherever the need, clearing the way with nearly 100 lights, 4 different emergency siren / flashing light combinations, and off-road wheelie-popping action!

Hess’ first-ever Ambulance is a heavy-duty Type I truck-style medical transport that includes an oversized passenger compartment that doubles as a carrier for its Rescue partner.  Designed for high visibility, the bright, attention-grabbing red and white cab coloring is accompanied by 70 lights!  They have added four different flashing light patterns; each activated in tandem with a unique siren sound via the four cab-mounted buttons. A switch under the chassis activates lights in steady mode.

Parents will appreciate they have added a “Mute” mode to keep those amazing lights flashing without the accompanying siren sounds. The sparkling chrome accents add impressive detail to the heroic vehicle.  A top-mounted button at the rear of the see-through passenger compartment releases the rear door which acts as a ramp for the Rescue.

The accompanying Rescue is a rugged on/off-roader pickup truck with a fold-down tailgate and a pull-back motor that can be revved-up and released to create fun wheelie-popping action!  Its bright red color is complemented with sparkling chrome-look accents and another 26 lights that work in steady mode.
