Here at Firebox HQ we don't believe in luck (unless it's to explain away the success of someone we can't stand). Lucky socks, lucky pants, lucky this, lucky that - it's twaddle, innit?
And as for lucky charms, don't even go there. We didn't. But then we discovered Voodoo Charms, and as self appointed arbiters of what's hot and what's not, we've decided that these cute little characters are the latest must-have accessories.
Looking like something that has just escaped from Tim Burton's twisted imagination by way of a needlework class for nutters, each Voodoo Charm has been handcrafted from one continuous length of string. Clever, eh? You can pop them in your pocket, put them on your keyring, attach them to your mobile or simply keep them on your desk.
Who ya gonna call?
But what's with all this voodoo business? Well, Voodoo Charms won't turn you into a zombie or subliminally instruct you to sacrifice chickens. What they will do, however, is bring you good fortune. Maybe. You see each stringy character has a special 'power' that is said to help the holder. Big maybe.
For example if you possess the Ninja, nobody can hurt you. Miss Angel, on the other hand, will help you to be your sweet self at all times. Who'd have guessed little stringy thingies could be so utterly irresistible?
Punk Girl and Punk Boy
Voodoo Charms make brilliant little pressies and keepsakes - whether you're travelling, sitting exams, looking for love or just looking for a cute little thingamabob to carry around. And even if you're a complete cynic we guarantee you'll soon be attributing your success to your stringy companion's bewitching power. So be lucky and get ordering before Voodoo Charms cast their spell over everyone.

Firebox says: We reckon so!
I've just bought the dude and he is awesome. I'll be sure to take him ever where with me. I ordered it on the 27th and it turned up on the 28th which was great, couldn't be happier thank you. Oh and they are so CUTE!. Chris, Cleckheaton - 28th March 2008
Ahh, these are GREAT!
I've had one for a few years now, they first hit the world at Camden market in London.
I bought a little orange one for my friend and a black one for myself. They're still going strong and have gained a few trinkets and accessories over the years themselves.
Get one, you'll love it :). Calum, Herts - 28th January 2008
