The iconic PLAYMOBIL hairstyle is cemented in modern popular culture and recognised the world over, with many fans getting haircuts in this style, not to mention its influence on catwalk trends. So for the first time ever, iconic toy company PLAYMOBIL is making it possible for everyone to knit their own version of the famous hairdo into a beanie this Christmas.

To mark the brand’s 40th anniversary year, PLAYMOBIL has created a capsule collection of bobble hats, named ‘PLAYMOhair’, in collaboration with the UK’s fashion capital knitwear specialists, Electronic Sheep. A limited-edition range, four colours have been produced with only forty of each made to celebrate this landmark year.

A great alternative to the popular ‘PLAYMOhair’, this knitting pattern can be downloaded for free from www.playmobil.co.uk/playmohair. Simply follow this knitting guide to create your own unique take on the PLAYMOBIL haircut in any colour you want! Aimed at those already knitting, this guide requires basic knitting skills and is officially categorised as ‘easy’ on the scale of skills needed to follow this pattern.

Known for their knitted scarves and their tapestry-esque designs, Electronic Sheep has carved a unique identity with its distinctive designs. Internationally-recognised and a label coined as ‘one to watch’ in the knitwear world, Electronic Sheep were the perfect collaborator to create this knitting pattern. The brainchild of designer-duo, Brenda Aherne and Helen Delany, this East London-based label, with roots in Dublin, brings an exciting futuristic feel with its exceptional patterns, as well as trend-setting aesthetic, to PLAYMOBIL.

This year, PLAYMOBIL has an exciting array of playsets which will keep children entertained at Christmas and well into the New Year. PLAYMOBIL’s brand new ranges are set to encourage even more hours of creative play this festive season and beyond.
