Back to School with Gutzy Gear + 3 Giveaways!

July 12, 2012

When you were young – did you ever decorate your backpack? Or how about wanting a letter jacket – so you could show your friends and the whole world what you were passionate about?

I know I did! It’s important for kids (Especially these days) to be able to show their individuality, especially when starting a new school year!

I came across a really cool company called Gutzy Gear.

Gutzy Gear Customizable Backpack

Gutzy Gear can help your children express themselves by making their backpack or duffle bag more fun, exciting, and very personalized – but – having the opportunity to change the straps around at any given moment!

I let Andrew sit down with me looking through the Gutzy Catalog and he picked out all the things that he liked.  They have sooooo many Gutzies to choose from!! Series 1 and 2 Gutzy Gear

I was surprised to find out how they have some licensed Gutzies available!! How neat!  Unfortunately, they didn’t have Rescue Bots (yet) but if and when they do – we’ll be all over those!

Gutzy Gear Patches with Marvel and Spongebob

There were so many things to choose from – but he finally picked four things that represented him in some way or another!

Andrew will be attending preschool this year – and although he won’t have a backpack (they use ice cream pails) – he is still pretty excited about his Gutzy Gear.

When I got them in the mail, I was so impressed – they’re such great quality patches – and have great Velcro attachments on them.. nothing cheap.

I was happy to see that the Gutzies come two to a pack- So he ended up with some that didn’t necessarily represent him now – but he still really liked them, and continues to interchange them:

And when his friends have some extras, they can swap!

Gutzy can now be purchased all over the place: Target, Walmart, Toys R Us, and several boutiques nationwide!  First you’ll want to buy the starter kit, which includes the two straps and a patch to get started:
