In the mood of Back to School I wanted to do something fun with the kids and their friends while helping them get ready for back to school. We hosted a Gutzy Gear In-home party. Everyone got a pack of Gutzy Straps and a pack of the patches to take home. The straps are awesome and can fit most narrow places..I say that because we found while they are great for backpacks, they are also cute on scooter bars and bicycle bars. They even looked cute on the rolling luggage handles. (You get the idea of where to stick 'em). Now what are they? They are straps made of the soft side of Velcro. They hold patches that are backed with the rough side of Velcro. The patches and can be bought at stores (we found them at a Target) and then traded among friends. What I really liked about the straps is that for one it added extra padding to the bookbag straps making a heavy bag easier to carry and has extra padding for the shoulders. Has the Gutzy trend hit your child's school yet. Here is what these things look like:
