Arabia Moomin Mug - Mymble
Since our most recent trip to Finland we have become completely Moomin obsessed!! Hiking through the forests in Finland made us really understand these adorable characters created by Tove Jansson in 1945 and the beautiful land in which they live.
The Moomins are a family of white and roundish trolls with large snouts.
The Moomin family and their friends live an adventurous life in the idyllic and peaceful Moominvalley in harmony with nature. The largest building in the valley is the Moominhouse, and its occupants welcome all visitors from the valley and further afield.
The Moomins love the sea and sometimes, they set out on journeys of exploration that take them far from Moominvalley, but they know they always have a safe home to return to. As autumn approaches, the Moomins prepare to hibernate. By the time Moominvalley is carpeted in snow, the Moomins are already in a deep sleep.
This pink Moomin mug by Arabia from 2008 features the younger Mymble in love. It's beautifully illustrated by Arabia artist Tove Slotte and the illustration can be seen in the original book " Moominsummer Madness" by Tove Jansson.
These mugs are a really special gift and collectors item.
