2013 was the 21st year of Thomas Wooden Railway. From this year on, the line was made by Mattel in Fisher-Price's product ranges. This was also the year in which wheel dates were updated to reflect the line's change in ownership, and the yearbook received checkboxes again to keep track of one's collection. Products also gained more-rounded edges for safety purposes. In addition, plastic was included increasingly into destinations and vehicles in order to cut down on production costs. Many destinations also feature more detailed graphics and various characters making cameo appearances on the destination itself, which is a feature carried over from Fisher-Price's other merchandise line, Take-n-Play. Later in the year, painted wheels were removed from the models that had them.
