The holiday tradition of the Hess Toy Truck continues this year, with a tow truck bringing along a race car, both decked out with the Hess brand and the familiar white and green color scheme (note: if you have not spent any time on the East Coast, this will most likely not be familiar, at all).
When we were kids, we thought that those little toy cars that you pulled back to go flying ahead, were cutting edge. Nowadays, toy cars have come so sophisticated that kids can draw their own racetrack and the toy car will follow along its path. Doodle Track comes with Doodle Track Cars, and a marker. All you have to do is draw a path for the car and the race car will follow it automatically. That is not bad at all for $14.99 at ThinkGeek.
