Gutzy Gear is another one of those simple, but brilliant ideas. It consists of two soft straps that wrap around the straps of your child's backpack. Then the straps are decorated with Gutzies that attach with velcro. You can move them around, switch them out, add new Gutzies- whatever you feel like doing.
When I opened the package with the straps, I was pleased with how soft they were. They add a nice layer of padding to Ethan's backpack straps. The Gutzy Gear straps were easy to attach to his backpack, and right away he was busy trying to figure out where to stick the Gutzies. Then Vivian had to get in on the action, so we added straps and Gutzies to her backpack too. They're so proud!
I've been impressed by how well the Gutzies and the straps have stayed attached to each other and to Ethan's bag, especially given how rough Ethan is with his backpack in the course of getting to and from school on the bus. All in all, we're really happy with our Gutzy Gear and look forward to adding more Gutzies to our collection!
Right now I have a special offer to share with you guys- if anyone purchases a package of Gutzies (retail price 3.99-5.99), you can email a copy of your receipt or a picture of your child with his/her new Gutzies to Amy@bsmmedia.com and you'll receive an exclusive Gutzy Gear patch that's not available in stores.
