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 and vehicles continue to deliver exceptional quality, imaginative play, and an emotional connection that only these iconic characters can provide. For even more fun ways to play, Bertie the bus comes with a poseable plastic figure that can ride along with him. Bertie is very friendly and always ready to help. He can be competitive and a bit cocky, especially when it comes to racing, but he's also very energetic and cheerful around his friends.
