Gutzy Gear Backpack Straps Giveaway!

With only two months left in the school year, my kids backpacks are looking a little rough. But we just heard about Gutzy Gear backpack straps to spruce em up and got a few to try out last night. The kids were so jazzed they actually wanted to go to school this morning!!

Check it out.

Gutzy Gear backpack straps velcro on any backpack (even messenger bag style handles) and then there’s a collection of hundreds of patches (aka “Gutzies”) to choose from to accessorize them.  Gutzy Gear encourages kids to trade with each other and, in the process, build lasting friendships rooted in positive themes and high self-esteem.

Jackson and Annie gave a set of straps to their buddies and everyone, from a kindergartener girl to a 5th grade boy,  loved them! Aren’t they cute?!!!


Gutzy Gear is only available online and at select Bed, Bath and Beyond locations (in Houston they are available at 10515 KATY FREEWAYSUITE A, HOUSTON, TX 77024). But you can win a free Gutzy Gear Starter Kit including straps and two Gutizies here on Still Living The Dream!

Annie and her friend selecting which new Gutzies they want to add to their collection!

My good friends at Gutzy Gear said that any of my friends (That’s YOU!) who purchase a package of Gutzies – the extra patches that velcro onto the straps (retail price of 3.99-5.99) and sends them either a copy of your receipt or a photograph of your child showing off their additional product will receive an exclusive Gutzy Gear patch that is not available in stores!  So basically if you add to your collection, they’ll add to it as well!

Anyone wanting to take part in this promotion can email your picture or receipt to with the subject line “Gutzy Gear BOGO promotion”. Make sure to include your shipping address so they know where to send their free Gutzy!

I was given 6 sets of Gutzy Gear straps and Gutzies patches to review and pass out to friends. No other compensation was received and all thoughts and opinions are my own.
