Think you’re too cool to have a garden gnome? How about a solar-powered garden gnome–or, more technically, a dwarf? Even if you personally think this lawn ornament is too ridiculous for words, chances are good you have a relative somewhere who’ll think this gizmo is the greatest thing ever.
The Solar Dwarf Light by Hong Kong-based solar lighting company Cistwin (which comes to us by was of RedFerret) features a small, crystal silicon solar panel that charges up during the day. After dark, something magic happens: cutesy little dwarves appear all over your backyard, illuminating both themselves and your landscaping/pathways with their super-bright, energy-efficient LEDs. These dwarves are good for 8 hours of illumination on a full charge and feature an on-off switch in case you get sick of them (or your neighbors find them creepy after dark).
Although the Cistwin website does not seem to offer a price on these decorative dwarves, they do appear to be available in different poses, making it even more likely that someone, somewhere, will feel compelled to purchase a whole tribe of these lawn ornaments and place them all over their backyard–especially those who already have a matching tribe of garden gnomes. Solar powered kitsch, anyone?
