In 2020, it became 75 year since Tove Jansson published her first Moomin novel, The Moomins and the Great Flood, in 1945. The first Moomin story is about Moomintroll and his mother, Moominmamma, who set out to find Moominpappa, who has gone on an adventure. They end up on a stormy sea and are later surrounded by a flood. In the end, they find the most beautiful valley in the world, Moominvalley.
Since then, Moomins have also found their place all around the world in the form of Arabia’s beloved Moomin dishes, especially Moomin mugs. Moomin mugs have established themselves as a well-known Finnish design icon and one of the largest ceramic mug collections in the world. The story of the Moomins at Arabia dates back to the 1950s when Tove Jansson herself decorated the first plates and mugs of a children’s set of dishes designed by her mother.
Arabia celebrated the Moomins’ 75th anniversary year with a special collection of the Classics mugs with a special bottom stamp. The Classics mugs are the character mugs in Arabia’s Moomin collection. They feature the characters who live in Moominvalley doing their typical chores in a colorful setting. In total, they number 21 and feature Moominpappa, Moominmamma, Moomintroll, Snorkmaiden, Little My, Snufkin, Sniff, Too-ticky, Mymble, Mymble’s Mother, Stinky, Hattifatteners, The Groke, Ancestor, Misabel, Ninny, The Hobgoblin, Inspector, Thingumy & Bob, Moominhouse and Love. Each mug has a gold-colored stamp saying “Moomin 75” and it is illustrated with a picture of Moominpappa, Moominmamma and Moomintroll in a warm hug. These special edition Moomin mugs were sold only from 7th of August 2020 to the end of the same year, so they were in production for less than six months.
