New York, NY, 2016-Jun-09 — /EPR Network/ — Lionel Messi, the undisputed champion of international football (soccer) and the world’s number one player has teamed up with the award-winning Funtastic LTD., to launch the Messi FootBubbles and the Meet Messi Competition #MeetMessiComp. Already an international sensation, and available now at Toys ‘R’ Us stores nationwide, the Messi FootBubbles turns traditional bubbles into a “durable” bubble that can be juggled like a traditional soccer ball easily with your feet. Once mastered, budding soccer pros can then submit video of their foot bubble skills through social media, and automatically be entered to win a trip of a lifetime to meet soccer sensation, Lionel Messi in Barcelona.

“We are thrilled to be working with a superstar like Lionel Messi and are equally excited to work with him on the #MeetMessiComp,” says Nir Pizmony, CEO of Funtastic. “The Messi FootBubbles are an ideal product as the weather heats up around the country. After all, what’s better than combining the fun bubbles with the popularity of Soccer?”

To enter the competition, fans need to upload a video (max 30 seconds) of themselves showing off their Messi FootBubbles skills on Instagram using the hashtags #messifootbubbles, #meetmessicomp or through the Facebook page, links are easy to find on www.footbubbles.com. Lionel Messi himself will select three lucky winners based on skill, creativity and originality. Submissions must be received by December 31 st , 2016.

The Messi FootBubbles are easy and fun to use. To get started, kids simply dip the bubble blower into the super solution and blow just one bubble at a time while holding the blower downwards, then gently shake off the bubble. The unique super solution and Messi socks allow for kids to actually kick and bounce the bubble from their feet, practicing key skills like balance, control and timing. Budding soccer pros can play by themselves or keep the bubble bouncing for as long as they can with friends. The more one plays the better he/she will get.

The Messi FootBubbles Starter Kit includes two Messi socks, one bubble blower, one tray and one bottle of 2-oz. bubble solution. The Messi FootBubbles retail for $9.99-11.99 and are available at Toys R Us, Bed Bath & Beyond, Dollar General, CVS and Walgreens starting in June.
