Some of the unique attributes of this toy is that as the ability to float and roll on the ground. The Hess Voyager actually is mounted on rolling wheels. Both the working bow and stern have lights that work. The red and green port and starboard running lights are controlled by a switch located on the deck of the ship. Some of the finer details include anchors and propellers with a proud flag at the stern of the ship. An interesting fact about this Hess toy is its one of two Hess toys made by the famous Marx Toy Company which made this Hess Voyager Tanker Ship in the USA. Other Marx toys were made in China and Hong Kong
 
 
One of the neat features about this toy is its rolling wheels. Other unique attributes are a working bow with stern lights.
