$4.99USD

Gnome children have all the playfulness and cheer of their parents, but none of the serious side. They are some of the most impish creatures in the wood, but they learn their prank-loving ways from the best. Gnome children are smaller than dwarf babies, and they grow slowly.

  • Characteristics: With its pointy cap, perpetual smile, and irrepressible energy, this gnome child makes the most of childhood, which for gnomes lasts quite a few more years than humans.
  • Size and Color: With his earthy dark red tunic and cap and brown boots, the gnome child blends in well with his surroundings in the forest and garden. He stands 2 ¼ inches tall, similar to a salt shaker.
  • The Gnome child is part of the Mythical Realms® collection
  • All of our products are Non-toxic and BPA free

History

Gnomes were first identified fairly recently, just a few hundred years ago. They were at first mistaken for dwarves, until it became obvious that even full-grown gnomes were smaller than dwarves. They love the earth and enjoy digging, just as dwarves do, but they have a sly, impish side, much like elves. Gnomes are common still, most often sighted in gardens, where they occasionally make off with fresh produce or tools. Gnome children are fast and shy around big people, so they’re seldom seen, but any gardener will tell you they are out there!

Story

The tiny gnome child woke up outside, again. He’d fallen asleep munching radishes in the garden of a big person, and now the sun’s warm rays sought him out beneath the leaves.

An impish grin crossed his face before a single thought entered his mind. He knew his Mum would wonder where he’d been, and she’d be angry and her cheeks would turn red. The child loved that.

It was spring, so the fairies flew about gently waking newly sprouted flowers. The little gnome surprised one by yanking a flower stem just as she flew near, sending a cloud of pollen toward her when he let go. He disappeared into a mouse hole before she saw him.

Peeking his head up minutes later, he heard his mother calling. It was time for a little game of hide-and-seek. He smiled. It’s good to be a gnome.
