Watch with amusement as the one and only Gnome-Be-Gone frees your garden of a kitsch little Euro invader. Who does he think he is, wearing tiny red dunce caps and pushing inefficient wooden wheelbarrows? Tuck a few made-in-the-USA Gnome-Be-Gones into your flowerbeds and watch the demented yard goblins get toted away. Set includes one gnome and two Gnome-Be-Gones. Designed by Fred Conlon.

I was very surprised to find that the gnome is made of hollow, light weight ceramic. The gnome-be-gones are also very light weight considering they are made of metal. I bought this to put outside in my flower bed but I'm affraid if the wind blows even a bit hard the gnome will definately blow off and break, there isn't anything holding it on. The gnome-be-gones will fall over unless secured to the ground with something, though they wouldn't break. We may try filling the gnome with sand or pebbles to weigh it down and secure it to the gnome-be-gones with thin wire. I've actually bought another gnome that is heavier and less likely to break. It isn't as bright and cute as the original gnome though. This sculpture wouldn't be good inside either unless it was off the floor and/or weighted down, the gnome-be-gones as a base are too unstable. It is funny and cute though...we really dislike gnomes as yard decor unless they are large and tasteful maybe. I can't say I would recommend this to a friend especially if the intention was to put it outside.

                Cute and unusual. I like things that are different from regular garden art.
                After reading other reviews I bought some clear sealant today to hopefully make the art last for years.
