Hess Cargo Plane & Jet

If you have a child who loves cars, trucks, and airplanes, this Cargo Plane & Jet is a must-get. Testers were excited right from the start. The packaging feels like you are opening a vintage collection item. The plane wings come unattached, so it fits in a box smaller than expected for an airplane toy. The wings can be unsnapped and snapped back on again, adding an extra layer of fun to the imaginary play. For instance, your child could pretend the cargo plane crashes and must be fixed afterward. The quality of the plane exceeded all expectations. Testers told us it looks and feels just like a real plane. Its design is impeccable, with shiny silver accents and beautiful green and white colors. The wheels are smooth and make it easy to glide on the ground. All materials are high quality and feel both heavy and sturdy. Nothing feels cheap in this toy, and it looks like it will last a lifetime. It certainly held up well through two months of vigorous testing. All this would be great on its own, but this cargo airplane offers so much more, like opening cargo doors that hide an included jet (which has folding wings), a sliding ramp, flashing lights, and sounds that are activated with motion or by the press of a button. The cherry on top? It comes with all necessary batteries already inserted, so your child can use it right out of the box.

HOW IT WORKS

A Seal of Approval review involves a multi-step process conducted over an eight-week period.

Parents and children, experience and review submitted products and services either already released or coming to market.

Participants fill out questionnaires for each product or service they test. They score based on 13 levels of criteria including quality, appeal, design, price, packaging, directions, desirability, stimulation, replay factor and more. Results are based on both statistical averaging and comments received by testers.

There are three testing periods each year:

It is non-refundable and has no bearing on the result of the testing. Additionally, we require three samples of the product or access codes for online submissions.
