Knome History

Knome History

Dear Knome Enthusiasts,

We are delighted to announce a groundbreaking scientific discovery. After two-and-a-half years exploring the globe, searching for the mythical and magical creature known as the “gnome”, we now have proof this tiny, magical creature really exists. In fact, our team of scientists have actually lived among what we now know to be, the “Kabooter Knomes”.


These fun and friendly critters taught us about their species, as well as their homeland, the Land of Kabooter, a secret, hidden place that smells a bit like candy and a lot like magic.

Perhaps a more exciting fact is that we have discovered many marooned Knomes from Kabooter that live among humans. In fact, it is not unusual to find a Knome living in your home, backyard, or school playground.


But be warned! Although Kabooter Knomes are delightful and neighbourly, they are also very curious and they have a voracious appetite for sugar and shenanigans. So the next time you are unjustly blamed by your family for making a mess, eating the last cookie, or breaking something, just remember that it was probably “Mr. Knomebody.”

We have learned that although it’s common place for humans to hear Knomes and see evidence of their presence, it is very rare to actually witness a Knome in motion, as Knomes are lightening fast and quite shy. Knomes also LOVE to play the freeze game.

With some luck, you may befriend a Knome. Knomes are fascinated by humans, especially children because kids are so much fun and they often have sugar smeared on their faces. Keep in mind though, that Knomes can be very shy at first and they will likely stay out of sight until they get to know you and trust that you are friendly.

We hope you enjoy learning about Knomes as much as we have.
