What Is A Zwinky And Why Do You Want One?

What Is A Zwinky:

Here is what I got when I looked it up. A Zwinky is customizable online character. A Zwinky is much like an Avatar but more so. A Zwinky is much like a WeeMee only bigger. Wow.

What Zwinky reminds me of is something we had when I was a kid, back in the Stone Age. Fashion magazines aimed at young girls would offer a picture of a girl to cut from the page of said magazine. Along with the paper “model” came a large wardrobe of clothing we could cut out. Each item had several tabs at various parts of the clothing. We’d hold the item to the model and close the tabs around her. Voila! You changed what she was wearing. Zwinky is like that only digitized and, obviously, made for the Now Generation. It’s fun and it’s harmless. And remember:

  • Zwinky is completely free to download!
  • It’s quick to download Zwinky and easy to create!
  • Chat with your Zwinky friends in a safe environment (Zwinktopia)
  • Huge wardrobes to dress your Zwinkies
  • Brand new Sexy Zwinkies now available (Hottie Zwinky)

Follow any of the links to create and download your Free Zwinky!Once you have created a Zwinky, you can even find other Zwinkies to chat with and add to your friends list. You can create as many Zwinkies as you like, so go ahead and download your Zwinky now.

Zwinky is owned by IAC Interactive whose board of directors are Barry Diller (QVC, Fox Paramount), Edgar Bronfman Jr. (Seagrams), Victor Kaufman (Tri-Star, Sony), John C. Malone (Remember TCI Cable), Alan Spoon (Washington Post) and Gen. H. Norman Schwarzkopf (Desert Storm) – to name a few. Also, Zwinky is lauded to be kid-safe.  As with all things on the internet, use normal precautions.

When you download a Zwinky, a toolbar will be added onto your computer. This will include a search box that will appear before your address bar, which will make it easier to search for certain web sites. Your Zwinky and other features that are downloaded are available on your computer as soon as you start it up.

Why Do I Want a Zwinky?

First and foremost – all the really cool kids have it. Below are some comments I’ve come across.

“Yes, Zwinky is taking over the internet and no one is going to be able to stop it! Zwink officially launched in December and right away claimed more than 2 million unique users. Those cute little customizable avatars are irrepressible!”

“These Zwinkies are definitely targeted at the MySpace generation and anyone over 35 is probably not going to understand their appeal. Experienced users are also going to be less likely to download that new toolbar which adds features that they don’t want. But for the rest of us, who cares? I want my Zwinkies and I want them now! NOBODY IS GOING TO STOP ZWINKY!

So here is my take on Zwinky. It’s a cartoon character you can dress up to suit your mood. It’s a cartoon character you can dress up to reflect how you feel about yourself, if only for the moment. Once the Zwinky toolbar is installed, it opens up a world of other Zwinky users. You have the opportunity to make new friends with other Zwinky users.

Go ahead. Have some fun.
Install you Zwinky now.
