Gnomes in Sims 3

It's not home without Mr. Gnome! These wee wonders with lifelike proportions stand small as guardians to any nook or cranny.

Not in the mood for real people? You'll get a kick out of these statuesque marvels, so oddly realistic… and strangely lifelike.

Gnomes seem like cute little statues. However, BEWARE! They are sly, conniving and sometimes magical gnomes. More likely to trick your sim than help them.
