By this point in the year, my girls’ backpacks are getting a bit tired looking. Audrey (5th grade) and Georgia (2nd grade) each have rolling backpacks, so they are well-used from being dragged along sidewalks, grass, down hallways, and up and down the stairs at school. But, of course, there is no. way. I am buying them new bags.
That’s why we were all excited to try out a new product called Gutzy Gear. This fun pick-me-up for backpacks comes with two soft, fuzzy backpack strap covers that attach to your child’s backpack straps (or rolling handle) with velcro. Then kids can go crazy choosing from tons of different “Gutzies”–velcro-backed patches that stick right onto the covers. There are lots of choices, from animals to snack foods to sports to electronics. And that velcro is sticky. I really don’t think they will be having patches fall off their bags.
I have to tell you, these patches are a huuuuge hit with my girls. All three of them immediately wrapped the covers around their backpack straps (and rolling handles, in the case of my older two), and stuck on the Gutzies. They were so excited to be able to each share a set with a friend, too. And my older girls said that the kids at school have asked about them.
Good news! I have a starter Gutzy Gear set (strap covers) and a surprise set of Gutzies to give away to one lucky reader. To enter, just leave a comment telling me who you would give your prize to, and make sure I have your email so I can contact you! Contest ends April 30. Winner has 48 hours to respond to my email or another winner will be chosen. US addresses only, please.
Disclosure: I was sent Gutzy Gear sets for my children to try out and to hand out to some of their friends. I was also given a gift card as a thank-you for checking out the display in my local store. All opinions are my own, only influenced by my four kids.
