I had already picked out my favorites, which were the dragons. My younger son surprised me by not picking the dragons as his favorite, he loved the cheeky monkey with the shades and the eldest chose the guitar as his favorite.
First we folded the soft Gutzy shoulder straps around my sons rucksack straps, this was extremely easy to do and I was pleasantly surprised at just how strong these were when attached. Then for the fun part, choosing which and how many patches to stick onto the straps. What fun !! I found the patches to be really good quality and when placed onto the straps were very strongly attached. Although we did change the order of the patches a few times this was simply done by removing them and re-sticking with the same initial sticking strength.
Now for the big test, 5 days away from home with the Gutzy Gear in place on his rucksack. Test one - how will mam cope without him for 5 days? Test two - How many, if any, patches will still be attached on his return? Well, Test one - mam didn't cope very well at all and sat watching the clock and counting the days most of the time. Test two - This even surprised me, ALL the patches returned home and still stuck strongly on the straps as well. So we have a fail for test one and a unbelievable pass for test two.
