One of the reasons I liked Girl Scouts, back in the day, was the neato patches one could earn with different projects and activities. I really liked those patches, and had been thinking of enrolling my twins in the Daisies (Girl Scouts for 5yr olds) – but alas! – there are no troops nearby!
Then, because the universe is obviously resonating with my yearning to get my kids all patched up, I got the opportunity to review a new product that’s just come out for kids – Gutzy Gear!
Gutzy Gear are fun embroidered velcro patches in different designs that can be attached to special straps that wrap around a kid’s backpack.
And the really fun part, aside from looking fun and cool – is that kids can trade them with each other! Kinda like the amusement park collector pins, but less expensive, and easier to obtain.
There are a lot of patches to choose from – my girls got the frog/ladybug set and the funky monkey set to split between them. The straps went on easily and the Gutzies (patches) had enough grip to stay on without fear of falling off, but were still removable by little hands.
At first I was worried that the girls would squabble over who got which patches, but they seemed really pleased with the ones they had. They haven’t traded any yet, but we’re hoping that as Gutzy Gear catches on, that more of their school friends will join in on the fun.
Amy at BSM Media is the terriffic lady who matched me up with this great product, and she has even more in store for you:
