I am so happy to announce the arrival of Garden Gnomes made especially for kids! These Gnomes are made just like my collectible Gnomes, but they don't have any beads (that give Gnomes some weight and help them stand up) or hard plastic safety eyes. They are made from kid-safe acrylic yarn and stuffed only with kid-safe polyester fiber. Even their eyes are yarn!
With this line come the redesigned female Gnomes! I've made female Gnomes before, but I've long felt they could be even better. These more youthful girl Gnomes are adorable with their little braids and bright red lips!
My two little godsons (14 and 18 months) have been testing Gnomes for Kids for durability. Their moms report that the youngest loves to carry his Gnome around, and sometimes throw it at the eldest. I will always recommend parents supervise their children while playing, but the moms do say the soft Gnomes don't appear to hurt when thrown. At this time, only spot cleaning is recommended. Sending it through the washing machine may destroy the doll. (We do plan to test this in the near future.)
I've been working hard on Gnomes for Kids. Check out the newest Garden Gnomes in the shop today! I hope you and your little ones love them as much as I do!
