Wilson is a young, red engine trainee. He is styled after the Santa Fe Super Chief. His boundless enthusiasm more than makes up for his lack of confidence when learning something new. Wilson often forgets to pay attention or listen well, which provides him with several learning opportunities. He is often heard saying "Let's ride the rails!" or "It's training time!"
Wilson is part of the land of Chuggington, where trains come to life! In this train-based world, the "chuggers" are talking characters based on trains of all types, from old steam engines to sleek new bullet trains. Based on a 3D CGI television series for preschoolers, the land of Chuggington is action packed and energetic. Each episode is entertaining, with lots of positive life lessons mixed in. Little fans will learn about values such as friendship, hard work, and sharing while they root for the three young "trainees" - Wilson, Koko and Brewster - as they learn to ride the rails in Chuggington.
