Gnome children are young gnomes found in the Tree Gnome Stronghold. Like adult gnomes, they can be killed or pickpocketed. All of them use melee unlike their adult counterparts. Usually they are easily killed in one hit. The fact that they are children and attackable is a subject of controversy among the RuneScape community.
Gnome children can be found throughout the Tree Gnome Stronghold, particularly in the Grand Tree.
