Just in time for the holidays, Sony and developer Media Molecule are introducing new festive content to "LittleBigPlanet 2" and "LittleBigPlanet PS Vita," the two most recent installments in its acclaimed line of family-friendly platforming video games featuring the adorable and iconic protagonist Sackboy.

The new downloadable content (DLC) "Festive Goodies Level Kit" comes with two new costumes for the rucksack-like hero that dress him up like a Christmas tree and present respectively, along with a number of other bells and whistles to let players deck the halls of their custom-built levels. Without having a chance to test out the new content yet, I nevertheless think it's safe to say that the best addition by far is Sackboy's new turkey head, pictured above. I mean, just look at the thing! Finally, PlayStation fans can reenact that famous scene from "Friends" where Monica ends up with a Turkey on her head — or, at the very least, pretend they're doing so until "LittleBigPlanet" creator Media Molecule gets its act together and releases a "Friends" DLC pack.

You can find more about the new "LittleBigPlanet" content on its website.
