Arabia Moomin Mug - Snufkin
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.
These mugs are a really special gift and collectors item.
Everything you need to know about Snufkin ...
Snufkin is a philosophical vagabond who wanders the world fishing and playing the harmonica. He carries everything he needs in his backpack, as he believes that having too much stuff makes life overly complicated.
Snufkin is easygoing and carefree, and enjoys thinking about things. He always comes and goes as he pleases. Snufkin meets every new person and event with curiosity and a warm heart.
The enigmatic Snufkin does not avoid other people’s company, but he does prefer to travel alone. On his journeys, he explores new places and tries his luck at fishing. He never asks the names of the new places he visits, but simply enjoys the journey itself.
Snufkin always wears a dark green hat with a wide brim and a similarly coloured, shabby old coat. He first joins the Moomins on their adventures in the book Comet in Moominland.
