Hi there, Learning Expressions Readers!
Can you believe it? After a long and relaxing summer, it’s just about time for a brand new school year. Though your kids may not be too thrilled about getting their thinking caps back on, I’m willing to wager that they are looking forward to seeing friends, buying a new back to school outfit, and purchasing the sleekest school supplies that (mom and dad’s) money can buy.
This is also the time of year when kids begin to lecture their parents about what’s “cool” and what isn’t, and what items are absolute must haves for the new school year. Followers of the latest trends and purveyors of all things cool, kids have an amazing ability to set and follow trends. And if your kids are anything like I was in grade school, I’d guess that they are also obsessive collectors of one thing or another.
Ever the collector myself, I used to hoard anything from vacation pins to scrap metal, action figures to bead animals. Collecting has always been an extension of my personality. My mom in particular loves to tell people about the crazy things she used to find in the pockets of my grade school uniforms. Whatever your age may be, collecting can be one of the simplest and most satisfying forms of self-expression.
If you, too, are familiar with the wonderful world of collecting, you will absolutely love Gutzy Gear™.
These velcro patches (referred to as Gutzies) are the perfect way to accessorize any kid’s backpack. They come in a whole bunch of cool shapes and designs. Gutzies are colorful and full of personality, and will appeal to anyone from the beauty queen to the baseball star.
Your Gutzy Gear starter pack will come with two strap covers that fit over the straps of backpacks, seatbelt straps, messenger bags, guitars, and more. The covers are made of a soft fabric that velcroes® around straps to provide canvases for the patches. Two patches are also included with the covers. Gutzy patches are similar to standard iron-on patches in terms of construction, but they are lined with Velcro® instead of iron-on material. This heavy duty Velcro® will keep them from slipping and sliding around once stuck in place.
When collections are so light and easy to carry around, there’s no need to leave them at home. Gutzies™ are completely portable and easy to trade anywhere at any time. Strap covers make it possible to decorate seatbelts and bring collections along on road trips or car rides. Older kids can even go online and collect virtual Gutzies™ !
What’s not to love about these patches? They’re great for young kids who want to collect their favorite characters or older kids who want to show off their personalities. Gutzies are not just collectibles, but also fashion accessories--encouraging individuality and visual expression.
Thanks for reading!
