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, contemporary patterns and brighter colors. Thomas & Friends Wood Toy Trains continue to deliver exceptional quality, imaginative play and an emotional connection that only these iconic characters can provide. Charlie can be a bit of a comedian. It's good to have sense of humor, though, even when things seem tough and that's why Charlie is so valuable. He may put play before work sometimes, but he'll always be there to cheer up his friends.
