Jerry Healy marketing director of Character Options commented: “The new Little Live Pets collection and TEKSTA Scorpion are stand out launches for Character Options this summer and we are investing heavily in a multi-platform marketing strategy of which the Tour will be a very important part.”

“We’re extremely pleased to have two of Character’s most popular brands on Tour with us this year,” added Gemma Gallagher, founder of “Little Live Pets continues to grow from strength to strength with the development of a huge range of products for children to choose from. It’s every child’s dream to own lots of pets and the Little Live Pets collection allows children to experience a range of animals in their own homes. TEKSTA is another brand that’s been well received with consumers and we’re really looking forward to seeing our Toy Tester’s faces when they discover there’s a new TEKSTA toy in town; the Scorpion.”
