About this project
See More at www.Gnombre.com
We have spent more than two years creating the world's first Hispanic gnome, Gnombre, for your garden, home or office.
Our project started with two basic questions:
1. Why do all garden gnomes have to be little European guys?
2. Wouldn't it be cool to have a gnome with some Hispanic swagger?
Enter Gnombre. Gnome + Hombre = Gnombre!
Now, via Kickstarter, Gnombre, is publicly available for the very first time, so you can put this LIMITED EDITION Gnombre in your garden, home, office or give one as a gift.
Watch the video above and learn more about Gnombre, check out our "Rewards" we are offering to the right or read more below. We thank you for taking interest in our project and we hope that you love Gnombre as much as we do.
Important! Each Gnombre that we provide through this Kickstarter project will include an ID sticker on the bottom of the base identifying your Gnombre as one of the "Special Edition Kickstarter" Gnombres making it a future collector's item!
SHIPPING UPDATE: If you pledge either the $20, $30 or $45 levels, please be sure add funds for the shipping as noted in the rewards section for each reward level. Thank you!
Gnombre is handmade using a sturdy poly-resin material and hand-painted with vibrant colors. He's great for indoor or outdoor placement (just ask him:). And, of course, we can't forget the Hispanic swagger that he brings with his: (1) green mariachi pants, (2) gnome-themed sombrero (aka his "Gnombrero"), (3) gold and silver over-sized belt buckle and (4) his infectious smile.
These are the two 13" prototypes of Gnombre.
Here's the newest addition, the 7 inch bobblehead Gnombre
Gnombre bringing good luck to the garden - great for indoor or outdoor use
Always up for a good vacation, here's Gnombre just after he hiked the Grand Canyon. Notice not a drip of sweat on his body. Dude is in incredible shape!
We currently have three complete Gnombre prototypes made (two 13 inch Gnombres and one 7 inch bobblehead). In this project, we are creating 500 Limited Edition Gnombres based on the prototypes. Only through this project on Kickstarter can you claim your very own Gnombre. There are two versions of Gnombre to choose from: (1) a 13” hand-painted Gnombre figure or (2) a 7” hand-painted Gnombre bobblehead. In order to receive a Gnombre, all that you need to do is to make a pledge to 'back' this project (See the "Rewards" section to the right).
Funding - How Kickstarter Works
The goal of our Gnombre project is to raise $3,500 to create the 500 Limited Edition Gnombres. In return for your donations, you can receive your very own Gnombre or set of Gnombres (see the "Rewards" section). Our project time-frame is just 33 days. If we do not meet our funding goal of $3,500 by the time the project ends, all donations are refunded and no Gnombres are made:( So if you love Gnombre, please buy one and help us spread the word.
You're probably here for a reason and that is to get your very own Gnombre, so we've made it very easy to do that with our "Rewards". In return for your donations, you can get your hands on a Gnombre. See the table below for a quick summary of our Reward levels. (If you have any suggestions for additional rewards, please let us know.)

Who is Gnombre? Is He Really 'Contagious'?
Gnombre hates to brag, but the size of his sombrero tells you all you need to know. But if you must know more you can read more about his story here.
Warning! People all over the globe have reported the following 'contagious' conditions after adding Gnombre to their lives:
- A strong sense of self
- More good luck than usual, especially right after touching his sombrero
- A keen sense of cleverness with occasional bouts of precociousness
- Strong cravings for queso dip and guacamole
We appreciate anything you can do to help us make Gnombre come alive. Feel free to ask us any questions that you might have. Send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or use the 'ask a question' button below.
Getting your own Gnombre, telling your friends, sharing our video on Facebook, suggesting ideas - all of these things will help us reach our goal. Just ask yourself "What Would Gnombre Do?" and we feel pretty good that you'll join us in fighting the good fight.
Thank you, Thank you & Gracias:)
