The Chinese Dragon is made of paper and is brought out for festivals and special occasions on the Island of Sodor. When the engines first discovered him, they were frightened by his appearance. Then they discovered that he wasn't a real dragon, and now they enjoy pulling the Chinese Dragon to the festivals.
Chinese Dragon is part of the magical world of Thomas & Friends. The engines all work and play together on the Island of Sodor. While they are doing their very useful work, they learn important lessons about friendship and getting along. Many of the characters are available to purchase as part of different toy brands, including the timeless Thomas & Friends Wooden Railway Series. You can purchase Thomas and many of his engine friends, as well as wooden track, buildings, destinations and sets from the simple oval to the Deluxe Tidmouth Sheds set. Many engines are available on a limited basis and are retired, so check ebay or other online auction sites for your favorites if you can't find them here or in a store near you.
