Political Garden Gnomes -- Why not?

This project is about creating some totally unique garden gnomes relevant to today’s political scene. Some people asked us, “Why build such incredibly awesome garden gnomes that will likely poke fun at the seriousness of elected office?” We of course thought, “Why not?”, and that brings us to where we are today. 

We started with the two most polarized and well-known political figures in the U.S. and we gnomified them. We imagined it might get a little lonely, just the two of them, so we also gnomified a few other recent politicians and came up with an entire set of awesomeness. Collect the entire posse and you’ll have the most politically-diverse garden around!

The Presidential Contenders (Obama and Romney)

Meet the new-and-improved Obama Gnome, and his good-natured adversary, the Romney Gnome!

These hand painted resin gnomes clock in at a respectable 10" tall. As if that wasn't enough, the Obama Gnome also comes with his own presidential podium! (Due to technical issues, however, we were unable to include a teleprompter. We're sorry for the inconvenience.)

The Other Gnominees

Freshly designed with exceptional realism -- this lineup of politically inspired garden gnomes represents six of America's most talked-about political figures.

We have the essential Romney and Obama gnomes, the more eclectic Palin and Ron Paul gnomes, and finally we’ve even given a nod to Bill and Hillary, just for good measure.

The Bill gnome is swearing that he’s innocent, despite the telltale lipstick mark on his cheek, and Hillary is quite the fighter, complete with bright red boxing gloves. Be sure to avoid that buckshot -- Palin's rocking a shotgun while Ron Paul is quite content to have that constitution tucked in his pocket and handy at all times.

What Are We About? 

GardenGnomeWorld.com was started with one very large…well, very small dream. That dream was to produce creative and fun garden gnomes, and hope that other people think the gnomes are as cool as we do. Increasing the awesome in your yard since 2007, we've got the prequisite skills to deliver on our promises.

Why Kickstarter? 

Much like our gnomes, our budget is very small. We really enjoy coming up with ideas, but in order to get the ball rolling into costly manufacturing, we need financial support. This is where you come into play.

What Are We Striving For?

With your support we're hoping to realize all of these awesome political gnomes. Our extra-ambitious goals are listed below. When they are met, additional gnomes will become unlocked and even more goodies may be added to all orders.
