Fresh from its deal to sponsor the inaugural Nickelodeon UK Kids' Choice Awards, ambitious Character Options has revealed further details of its marketing push for its new This Is Me doll collection.

According to a report in Marketing Week, the campaign has a tagline of 'There's a New Wholesome Toy on the Town' and will include TV ads, free ringtones and social networking, plus magazine promotions and a search for six real life 'Style Sisters' in conjunction with Nickelodeon.
