Zimmer Twins Launches New VIP Membership-Based Website for Kids

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - May 4, 2010) - ZimmerTwins.com, the popular movie-making website for kids now offers VIP memberships. For $3.95 per month, or $19.95 for six-months, VIPs can write their own comments, access exclusive animation clips to create their movies, make customizable profile pages and review movies by other members.

VIP members take part in a safe, moderated online community and support the Zimmer Twins! By purchasing VIP memberships, parents help the site stay commercial-free.

Since 2005, this Emmy and Parents Choice award-winning website has provided a place where kids can safely explore and exercise their creative muscles. Central to the site is a movie-making tool that enables kids to make movies by assembling scenes and adding characters, backgrounds and dialogue. Some of the best movies have been featured on television.

Over the years, kids have created serials, posted comments and provided producers with suggestions for new storylines, characters and features. The site has 400,000 registered members, who have made over a million movies.

ZimmerTwins.com is popular in the classroom. Teachers use the site and lesson plans to promote media and literacy skills. The movie-making tool is designed around elements of sentence structure and reinforces reading and writing.

"Truly, the Zimmer Twins movie maker is one of the best web applications I've seen in a while." says Dan Saffer, of HOW Design Annual. "Creating your own cartoon – is enormous fun and cleverly done. I made a movie myself and had so much fun I made another with my 6-year-old."
