Travelocity Talking Garden Gnome
I love him!
I just love this little guy!! He stands in the entrance hall and welcomes guests into my home with a giggle!! LOVE THAT! The colors are bright, his sayings are funny.
The only negative thing I have to say is he is REALLY LOUD!!!! The unit needs a volume control. This is not a biggie. But after a few minutes in our house, he is SO loud that someone will switch him off. :((
> My solution … I taped two cotton balls to the speaker and it works like a buffer. Perfect.
Cute Gnome Gifts
I purchased 5 of these as gifts to family members. I opened and tried each one to be sure they worked and they are perfect. Gave 2 of them to family members already and they are crazy about them. The kids love the Gnome and the parents love the Gnomes. They are better than I ever expected and at such a great price.
I remember when this little guy first came on the scene. I thought, wouldnt it be nice if you could buy one who talks. When I saw it on QVC I had to have one. Now he sits on the porch in my Az home. I keep him in a place where he can stay dry and as I go in and out or people go by he always has something to say. I love him, he is like my little friend. Dont have to feed him or anything, just keep him dry. LOL Great gift for all.
One of my best purchases ever!!
I originally purchased this as a gift for my sister. But after I received it, I "hid" it in the garage and scared my husband. Being motion activated, when my husband walked past him ( the gnome), it started singing, "I see London, I see France..."!! My husband jumped a mile and I laughed for 10 minutes!! I then decided to take it to my daughters house and hid it on the side of her dresser in her bedroom. When she went to bed that night, it started talking when she turned the light on!! She said it startled her but her husband laughed hysterically! That was the beginning of the "War"... Now, Whoever has the gnome has to deliver it to someone else's house and has to hide it so it will be found later. Our gnome has been found in a bathroom cabinet, a clothes dryer, a car trunk, the back of my van and many other places! It has been delivered by strangers, sent across the country, and has been on more vacations than all of us put together. He's had his picture taken resting by the pool, surfing in the ocean, on various cruise ships, and just resting in the hammock! What a fantastic buy this was!! Our gnome has added so much humor to our lives.... We truly love him!!
DAD LOVED IT
I gave this to my dad for his garden on Father's Day. He has gnomes, but not this one. He loves it. Fantastic buy
Love The Gnome
I bought two of these,one for our home and one as a gift. When we first turned the sensor on our dog went crazy looking around to see where the voice was coming from! Ironically it was the phrase with the gnome muttering about the dog thinking he was a fire hydrant!! Love this for the entertainment value! Being gnome collectors we hoped for the Travelocity Gnome for a very long time we are VERY happy we finally got one! We keep him in our foyer and turn him on when we are expecting guests.They love it and so do we! Nice quality too! Thanks QVC for having this!
Would like a non electronic Travelocity Gnome for our gardens....hint hint QVC....thanks in advance!
I bought one of these for myself and one for my sister for her upcoming 60th birthday. I have been helping her design and plant a garden and have been telling her that she needs whimsy as well as flowers. I think this handsome fellow will fit the bill perfectly! I love mine - he makes me smile every time I see him, whether he is talking or not!

I love my gnome but I can't leave him outdoors, so it defeats the purpose of purchase but I'm not sending him back. I'll find a use for him.
Love the Gnome!
Love the Gnome! However, I don't have it turned on all the time. I have it sitting in front of my fireplace and my dog is a doxie and barked at it the first time he said something and continued to do so till I turned it off.
This is so cute in my garden BUT he talks constantly & will not stop....thus I had to shut him off. I wish it would work right but he is out there anyway.
I may inquire if they have more as I loved the comments he made...fun to have if he works ok.
So Cute and Funny!
Just love this little gnome. Makes me, and anyone else who sees and hears him, laugh outloud. I just ordered my 3rd one of these gnomes, which will be given as a gift. I gave one as a gift to another girlfriend, and have one for myself. Someone who likes gnomes would really enjoy this little guy. He is well made, colorful, and I've had no problems with him. Since he talks whenever motion is detected, I do keep him shut off most of the time now.
I LOVED this little guy, and bought one for myself and one for my son. Mine broke - at the top of the legs, kind of spontaneously. I thought I must have done something to it that fractured it. I used super glue and put it back together. I was talking to my son not too long ago and he said that his had broken - he also didn't have any idea what had happened to break it. So I repaired his with super glue as well. The resin that the gnome is made of is only about 1/16 " thick at the top of the legs. I think that the resin is TOO THIN for the weight of the base that has batteries in it. Cute idea - highly overpriced - very very fragile.
