Official Zingy Toys: To Be Or Not To Be?
On 6th June 2012, EDF chiefs went on record to say that there were “no immediate plans” to turn Zingy into a toy. This was despite numerous online petitions, Facebook pages and Tweets in support of bringing the flame-shaped viral mascot to retail.
Perhaps tellingly however, a marketing manager at EDF did add that “we are looking at ways of using the character in future”, so there’s no need for Zingy fans to give up all hope yet.
In fact, some fans are far from pessimistic about the possibilities of Zingy toys being available to buy before the year is out. Some have even gone on Twitter and online forums to report that they have received news quite to the contrary from EDF customer service representatives.
At the time of writing however, no more official details are available, although we’ll be bring you the latest on this story as soon as there are any significant developments.
In the meantime of course, you may like to take a look at some of the unofficial merchandise that is being touted on Amazon and eBay.
