Playmobil is expanding its Special Plus pocket-money figures line-up this summer.

The 2013 lineup, launched in February, is being extended from next month with new characters including a knight, farmer, pirate and pizza chef (rsp: £2.99).

This week, Playmobil launched a search for a child to star in its Christmas TV adverts, which will run on channels including Nick Jr, Cartoon Network, CITV and Disney.
