You may notice something different about Thomas and all his friends – these classic toy trains have been redesigned with a fresh look featuring more exposed wood and stylish, contemporary patterns. Thomas & Friends™ Wood toy trains continue to deliver exceptional quality, imaginative play, and an emotional connection that only these iconic characters can provide. Gordon is like a guardian. He's strong, physically and mentally, so sometimes he seems wise beyond his years. This means he looks out for his friends and does anything possible to help when they get into trouble. For a seamless playtime experience, the redesigned toy trains are also compatible with classic Thomas & Friends™ Wooden Railway track (sold separately and subject to availability).
