Zombo app from iTunes

Todd Jepperson

Have you ever wanted to have a zombie to carry around in your pocket? You know, the kinda pal you can take out and have mindless, one-sided conversations with as you tug and pull his eyes back and forth in their sockets? Meet Zombo. This little guy… or whatever he is, just can’t wait to play. Tickle his feet or nose and he reacts by laughing and sneezing projectile mucous. Bat his dislocated eyeball around just for fun. Open his mouth wide to hear him say AahH! If you place your finger on his mouth, he bites and there’s a splat of red (unless you turn the blood option off).

Zombo just hit the iTunes store in December and we’ve got several codes to give away to Z&T readers, Facebook fans, and Twitter followers. I think that I had about all the fun there is to have from this little guy in about 5 minutes; but, my three year old loves it. Zombo has a talkback feature that he can’t get enough of; speak into the mic and Zombo repeats what you’ve told him in a deep, slow voice. It’s officially rated 9+ in the iTunes store for “Infrequent/Mild Cartoon or Fantasy Violence” and “Infrequent/Mild Horror/Fear Themes”; but, I would think that most people won’t have a problem setting their kids loose on him way earlier than that. I’m sure the rating comes from that eye hanging out of its socket, and the splat of red when he eats; but especially with the blood turned off, it’s a clay looking blob that doesn’t really even resemble real life.

If you'd like to win your chance to poke and prod your own personal little Zombo, send an email to   We will also be offering additional chances to win to Facebook and Twitter followers.  Winners will be selected throughout the month of January.  Remember you can win as many contests as you enter; but normally, if you enter any single contest more than once your entries will be disqualified. However, you can enter the Zombo contest each way giving you several chances to win.  For example, email an entry, follow Facebook instructions, follow Twitter instructions, and you have 3 chances!   Now who wants Zombo!?


  1. I bought it the day it came out, it's fun. My little girl (2 years old) loves playing with it as well.

  2. I have this app already, it's pretty sweet! The character is cute and the voice tracking is the best out there. Awesome choice for a contest!

  3. Thanks! It's definitely one for the kids to play around with. Kinda fun for a laugh, though.
