Zingy Sparks a MyKeepon Sell-Out

The clever peeps at Wow! Stuff have confirmed that their MyKeepon toy, the precursor to Zingy, has now completely sold out.

Ever since Zingy fever started to sweep the nation back in April, punters have been clamouring to get their sticky mitts on a Zingy toy. Realising that an EDF-authorised Zingy toy hasn’t even been confirmed, let alone released, fans of the little blob have taken solace in MyKeepon which is the toy that Zingy is based on.

Wow! Stuff CEO, Richard North, confirmed to the toy trade magazine, ToyNews, that his company has “sold out of production for 2012″ and that any stock that comes in over the next few months “will be all that is available for this year.”

Some opportunist traders have been putting MyKeepon on sale via Amazon at silly money, including a used one for £155, well in excess of the recommended retail price of £30.
