Stardoll is UK's top kids site - Nielsen Survey
The rich functionality and continued focus on fashion has paid off handsomely for Stardoll. Mattias and his team have continuously evolved the simple idea of dressing up dolls in a virtual environment in a sophisticated and intelligent way.
This is a community which is really engaged and interacts.
And Stardoll is now truly a global brand.
With 20m members worldwide and still growing strongly its not surprising that a new Neilsen survey of kids sites puts Stardoll at No1 for under 12's
Ahead of Club Penguin, Nickelodeon, Lego, Cartoon Network and the like, for proportion of audience under 12 Stardoll's challenge was always going to be monetisation.
Stardoll has approached this intelligently too. Revenues come from the sale of virtual clothes, gifts, scenery as well as from sponsorship and advertising - all in an integrated and non-invasive way.
