Gnome adventure kit

Invented by a Nashville schoolteacher to help parents and kids connect more (ideally 30 minutes a day), this Gnome on the Roam set includes a storybook, a journal, a magical-looking stick pen, a miniature suitcase and a 6-inch-tall, ready-to-decorate PVC gnome.

A companion app is designed to inspire exploration — and photo taking — for a modern sort of Flat-Stanley-meets-traveling-gnome kind of experience, geared toward ages 3 to 12.
