The Zizzle company was founded in 2005 by Roger Shiffman, co-founder of Tiger Electronics, along with the marketing guru behind Furby, Marc Rosenberg. Shiffman credits his wife for the name of the company. The first toy released by the company was called "iZ", which received comparisons to the Furby. The company received licenses to produce toys for Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, and also Nickelodeon's SpongeBob SquarePants and Dora the Explorer cartoons.
