"They're two, they're four, they're six, they're eight ..." If you're a parent with a child who loves "Thomas & Friends," you most likely know all the words to this catchy tune. In fact, my 3-year-old daughter asks me to sing it to her every night before she goes to sleep, holding onto a handful of the trains.

To my daughter's delight, Thomas recently added a new friend, Logan, to his team. The exclusive limited-release engine will be joining the Thomas & Friends Wooden Railway collection, only available through the catalog, website and at Official Specialty Stations. Each year, a new character will be available for a limited time, so you'll have to keep your eye out for the next one.

Here's a little more about Logan: He's a rough-and-tumble Steamie who looks like a Diesel. He understands how important patience can be and he works hard to correct his mistakes. He gains confidence and isn't afraid to ask questions.

Along with a limited-release character, the Thomas & Friends Wooden Railway collection also includes:

- My Custom Engine, where you can select one of three different engines in four different colors. You can customize your child's name on the bottom of the engine, as well as your child's favorite number on the side. Each custom engine also comes with a personalized book, where the child becomes part of the new exclusive story book by having their name and engine printed on the front.

- Sodor Story Collection introduces four new play sets based on kids’ favorite Thomas characters and Logan, the new limited-release character. Each play set includes an exclusive hardcover story book created in conjunction with each set so a child can play out the story.

- With Create-a-Set, little engineers can build their own train set.

Additionally, there will be more consumer products available, from high-quality bedding and sleepwear to soft storage and plush. For more information, visit ThomasWoodenRailway.com.
