A new week means a new post for Collector of the Week here at The Art of Fatherhood. As a fellow geek and collector of all things Pop Culture I wanted to showcase some cool collections that dads share in our community. We love to see this passion in what people collect. We talk about the latest movies, sports memorabilia, a Hess truck collection and video games that we are enjoying at the moment.
This Week’s Collector – A Hess Truck Collection
This week’s collector is from Barry. Barry shares a toy truck collection that is very near and dear to him and his family.
My parents got me Hess Truck for Christmas when I was a kid. I must have really liked the truck that my parents made it a holiday tradition. My kids came across the collection and asked me about them. I shared the history of getting them when I was their age. They asked me if they could play with them and I was thrilled. It was such a proud moment to pass down something my parents gave me now to my kids.
Thanks for sharing your story Barry. Hess Trucks are huge in the Northeast. Glad your kids like your collection.
It can be comic books, bottle caps, records, helmets or whatever you are into! I want to see what your passion is and why you started up that collection. For me, I believe that in each collection lies a better story. I want to share your story! Feel free to reach out to me and share your collection.
