Gutzy Gear Party and Giveaway {10/4-10/9} #GettinGutzy

Showing off our Gutzy Gear with my niece and nephew.

I am well on my way to winning the title of World’s Greatest Aunt, at least according to my niece and nephew. 😉  Over the weekend, I hosted a great party for them with the help of Gutzy Gear.

Gutzy Gear is a great, new way to express yourself by customizing your backback, sports duffel, messenger bag, and more! Gutzies are cool looking removable patches. Gutzies stick to a Gutzy strap cover that you put wherever you want to go Gutzy! With 56 Gutzies in a series and new Gutzies constantly being introduced, you can collect and trade a world of Gutzies. But Gutzy Gear is even more… Gutzy Gear is a lifestyle! Gutzy Gear is about showing the world who you are, taking chances and being the best YOU you can be. So wherever you are, whenever it is, whatever the plan…

Having so much fun!

We had so much fun decorating our Gutzy straps.  These are so fun for kids.  I love that they are velcro because just like the trends in fashion, kids have fads too. They can easily trade their football Gutzy for a soccer ball when spring comes around.

Gutzy Gear was born out of the deep-rooted imagination and entrepreneurial spirit of its founders, cousins Lauren Bass and Wendy Koolik. Hailing from a long line of business savvy and creative minds, and inspired by Wendy’s own children’s love for self expression, the pair had their sights set on creating achildren’s product that would be personal, interactive, and most importantly fun… but it wasn’t until they fortuitously came across their grandmotherBetty’s old golf sweater that their concept came to life.

The sweater—decorated with an array of patches to represent golf courses she had visited and played during her lifetime—was a symbol of Grandma Betty’s adventures, and each patch was a badge of her accomplishments. And… EUREKA! Gutzy Gear was born!

Inspired by Grandma Betty’s keepsake and determined to translate the concept for kids, Lauren and Wendy embarked on a three-year journey to create a product that would allow children to literally “wear their heart on their sleeve” and
express their unique personalities, hobbies and passions.

With a collection of hundreds of patches (aka “Gutzies”) to choose from, Gutzy Gear encourages kids to trade with each other and, in the process, build lasting friendships rooted in positive themes and high self-esteem. For founders Wendy and Lauren, giving kids the “Gutz” to express themselves isn’t just their company motto, it’s the way they live their lives.

Here are a few more highlights from our Gutzy party.

Now for the fun part.
