Mom bloggers and toy industry experts have taken notice of this interactive kit that encourages families to slow down and spend time together, even if for 15 minutes.

“We started including our gnome in all of our daily activities and excursions,” wrote Cleveland blogger Mom Fab Fun. “It’s amazing how much more aware you become of what you do every day and how even small, mundane tasks (like going to the grocery store) become a little more fun and exciting because you’re bringing the gnome with you and documenting the adventure later. I realized that the simple moments together were those that would become my children’s memories of their childhood.”

“Family time is everything!” echoed Paperclips and Pacis blogger. “Our boys are now 3 and 5 years old and they’re at an age where we can do more activities together that they can fully participate in. I love the idea of creating new and exciting kid-friendly adventures in our own backyard …This fun kit comes all packed up in a super cute little suitcase that you can use to keep all of your My Gnome on the Roam goodies together. The packaging is adorable…”

Industry experts at The Toy Insider gushed about the simplicity of the no-plugs, no-charging, no- batteries kit for kids. “The cardboard suitcase includes one blank gnome, one wooden pen, an adventure journal, and a book that tells the tale of Gustav the gnome. The people over at My Gnome on the Roam have one mission: to inspire busy families to connect, create, and explore. I’m all for that, and so I’m a fan from the start. The rules are simp— wait, no. There are no rules, and that’s the best part. Using the adventure kit is completely up to kids and parents. There’s no right or wrong, and there’s no dos and don’ts. There is however, an adventure guide that offers tools and tips for getting started.”
