This article is about the crane. You may be looking for the giraffe.


Lofty is a nervous mobile crane with a vivid imagination and a bit of a worrisome nature, so he tends to question some of the more extravagant ideas the team come up with. He has a keen eye for building and is often finding solutions to problems, although he tends to be shy in coming forward.


  • TBA


  • In the new series, he speaks with a Cornish or Irish accent (UK dub).
  • In the original show, he hasn't got a silver stripe over his grille.
  • His UK voice is almost the same as Duck's from Thomas & Friends (also a Mattel show), who is also voiced by Steven Kynman.
  • According to a YouTuber called James A Williams, he states that Lofty is no longer cowardly, has become completely sarcastic, cynical, intelligent, isn't scared of anything anymore, and does not even say "Er" or "Uh" before his words like "Yeah, I think so" anymore somehow. He still retains a nervous nature.
