All aboard! Hess is introducing a new, raily awesome plush toy to its My Plush Hess Truck series! 

The 2022 Choo Choo Train is the third addition to Hess’ plush toy line. Featuring squeeze-activated flashing LED lights, this train comes equipped with recordings of two iconic railroad rhythms: “Coming ‘Round the Mountain” and “I’ve Been Working on the Railroad.” The Choo Choo also includes an auto 15-minute shutoff nightlight, silent mode, and an easy-grab engine stack for when train travel is over.

In typical Hess collectible tradition, the plush’s license plate commemorates the year with a “Hess 2022” imprint. Long-time collectors and new Hess fans can use the detachable engineer license tag to personalize their vehicle!

This soft and durable, green train is available for $34.99 exclusively on with Energizer batteries included.
