The merchandising business for the Soccer World Cup in Germany is gearing up. The FIFA World Cup is not only a big business for Adidas or Puma, but also for tons of smaller vendors trying to make a business with all kinds of soccer branded merchandise. The strangest product I came across so far is the FooTooKit - a soccer voodoo doll.
Soccer fans can put the flag of the competing team on the t-shirt of the voodoo doll and start sticking needles into the doll to cast evil spells onto the players - sure works if believe in blackmagic.
The FooTooKit comes with the doll, needles and a set of flags of the Soccer World Cup teams.
It is currently sold out but is supposed to be shipping again early April. German store Fussi deluxe sells the FooTooKit for 14.95 Euros in Europe.

Tinder App Review
Tinder is a great mobile app for those who love making new friends. It's a fun way to make interesting people your friends. Just log in, swipe right to like or left to pass, and if the person likes you back, “It's a Match” for you. Making friends is a lot fun now if you are on Tinder.
About the Geek Mind
The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
