Far Out Toys has officially announced an open casting call for new talent to represent the Glo-Up Girls doll line in 2022. The announcement comes on the heels of a momentous year for the fashion doll line, which debuted in retail stores across the UK and on Target.com in the US in the Fall of 2021. The line is expanding in the US this year, starting with Target stores nationwide in February. Glo-Up Girls was also nominated for the highly-coveted Toy of the Year Award in the Dolls category.
The casting campaign invites parents of kids ages 8-17 to submit an official application to be considered for opportunities within the Glo-Up Girls’ growing slate of entertainment initiatives. In 2021, Far Out Toys’ creative production division Far Out Studios launched the hit YouTube series The GLO Show with popular teenage influencers including Dai Time, Makenna Kelly (aka “Life with Mak”), Paige Taylor, Sicily Rose, Madi Filipowicz and Rachel Brockman. The company also launched Far Out Records and featured massive TikTok star McKenzi Brooke as the recording artist for its first official song release Give a Little GLO.
Current cast members of the GLO Show are chiming in on social media to encourage other girls to try out.
“I’ve had an amazing experience with Glo-Up Girls this year,” said Makenna Kelly to Instagram fans. “Glo Up Girls is about what makes you shine bright, and using your GLO to uplift and inspire others.”
“Finally, it’s YOUR turn to show your GLO,” expressed Dai Time. “I can’t wait to see all your videos. And don’t forget to stay ‘glotivated’!”
To participate in the casting process, candidates are asked to post a social media video, tagging @gloupgirlstv on Instagram or TikTok with #GloUpStar, explaining why they want to be a part of the Glo-Up Girls team and showing off their talents. Applications will be accepted through January 31, 2022.
