Welcome to our Finga Zinga store! We began as a weekend project in the backyard workshop and now, 8 years later, FingaZinga.com is growing every day. Check out the interview! http://justnotchina.com/2007/11/interview-with-lynn-tierney/
Skill toys will always be in style; there is just something about a challenge that people can't ignore. Go ahead! Get wild and crazy creative! There really isn't any wrong way to Finga Zinga (unless you're using it to bean your little brother, but you would never do that, would you?) You can twirl it, spin it, balance it, pass it, juggle it, or catch it. You can even drop it and take it apart; that's why it's called a "skill" toy, and skill takes practice, right?
The store is owned and operated by Lynn Tierney, the inventor of the Finga Zinga. That would be me; science teacher, mom, grandma, photographer, video producer and anything else that strikes me as an interesting and entertaining endeavor, and yes, I can zinga. Maybe not as well as you, but passable. I just know that I don't do anything unless it's fun and Finga Zinga is fun. It can also be addicting. When I was starting out, a banker was playing with the prototype and couldn't seem to put it down, even though people were staring at this guy in a business suit playing with a toy, throwing it up in the air and missing it; picking it up and trying over and over again. Finally, he says, " I can't give you any money until you are making money," (go figure that one) "but I do want one when you get them finished. Email me". Wanna guess when I will be emailing him? My point is that I value loyalty and genuine enthusiasm and I care about your satisfaction. Of course, all of my students get first shot at buying a Finga Zinga, as they have been my cheering squad, focus group, and creative soundboard from the beginning, (they even named the colors!) but I am excited to finally offer the Finga Zinga to the public (that would be you) so that you can join in the fun.
Even after you get your own Finga Zinga, keep checking the website for limited edition colors, special offers, new accessories and events near you. We will be hitting the beaches and malls with demos and competitions, so stay tuned: same Bat time, same Bat channel! (Ask your parent or "gasp" your grandparent what that means.)
Please contact us if you have any questions and we will do our best to answer all your inquiries.
