Moomintroll is happy and curious. He wants to find out about new things and always helps others. The world is full of exciting places to explore, but he especially loves collecting rocks and seashells. He also loves the sea, as does the whole Moomin family. This mug features Moomintroll in Moomin and the Martians (1957).
Moomin Classics series features each character of the Moominvalley emphasizing each one’s own typical traits. The artwork present the characters from the front and behind and tells the story of that specific character. Arabia’s Moomins are turned from stories to ceramic illustrations by designer Tove Slotte. She has been drawing Moomins onto Arabia items since the beginning of the 1990s. The designer draws inspiration from Tove Jansson’s original illustrations, which she adapts to ceramic shapes. The Moomins have always been close to Tove Slotte’s heart. She articulated the significance of the Moomins nicely when she said: I think everyone should enjoy a little dose of Moomin philosophy every day.
