8/17/12: Make Your Backpack Your Own With Gutzy Gear

Well it is almost back to school time and one of the most important item every kid needs is their backpack.  I found a super cool product called Gutzy Gear that allows each kid to personalize their backpack with patches and show their personality. 
 Gutzy Gear is so easy to use.  You attach the Black straps to your own backpack with Velcro.  You can see those here on the sides in the picture.  Then add patches that just press on to the straps. 
 I was lucky enough to host a Gutzy Gear Back to School party.  Here are the kids putting the straps on their backpacks.
 Attaching their straps.
 Here are the patches.  Each pack contains two.  This was the fun part.  I had two of each set and of course more of the kids wanted certain ones, but we worked through it. 
 These are going to be a hot trading item as you can see here each of them checking out what others got to trade one from their pack with someone else.

The kids had a wonderful time putting these patches on their backpack.  They will be the envy of all the kids in school this year.
Of course the kids wanted to show me their backpacks.  These kids are ready for the new school year.
 Here is Lauren's completed backpack straps.
 Here is Evan's backpack.
 This is my favorite one - The Heart.  So cool.
