Want to know what the newest craze in my neighborhood is? Gutzy Gear! Yes thanks to me, I now hooked a bunch of beighborhood kids (and other friends) on the supercool Gutzy Gear patches! Last week I hosted a Gutzy Gear party and while a few last minute friends had to cancel, we still had a blast! Then I of course had to have a few more kids over the next day for more Gutzy Gear fun!
Okay so if you have no clue (which I didn’t before I got these) but Gutzy Gear is a new and fun way for kids to express themselves. Gutzy Gear features strap covers that go over your backpack straps (or messenger bag, rolling bag, purse and so forth) and on them you Velcro on their custom line of patches called “Gutzies.” There is no sewing, glueing or ironing required! Yeah, since I have no clue on how to sew! These patches are meant to be traded and shared amongst friends for a custom look that they can change whenever their mood changes!
My 5 year old was starting Kindergarten and Gutzy Gear was the perfect addition to his backpack to make him feel more grown up, especially since he is using the same backpack as he did in pre-school. I let him pick out patches that he wanted and he was so excited! We had other friends at our house who too who excited to rip open the packages and attach them to their backpacks. I just want to say again how much I love that they are made with Velcro! My kids attached them themselves and have no problem removing the patches either – but that is not to say that they don’t still well as they do! The best part though is that Gutzy Gear is for kids of all ages with tons of varieties out there to please every kid! There are even Gutzies featuring popular characters like Spider-Man, SpongeBob Squarepants, Avengers, Monster High and Sonic!
Overall, the party was a hit as well as the friends that came by for an impromptu Gutzy Gear party the next day! Just today we were at Target and my 4 year old begged me for the Avengers patch, they are truly fun to collect and show off!
