New Moominvalley Park Japan 2023 Moomin mug is finally here! This mug will be sold in the Moominvalley theme park in Hanno, Japan on 10th of February. The mug will be sold first only inside the theme park and later in Moomin Shop Japan as well. Moomin Shop Japan will ship the mugs only within Japan. The production volume of this mug will be lower than with the 2019 edition. There is also a purchase limit of five mugs per customer. The mugs are in our warehouse in Finland and the shipping is ongoing.
The illustration on the new Moominvalley Park Japan mug looks a lot like the previous edition from 2019. The bottom part of the mug has stayed the same apart from some color changes, but the upper part of the mug has had a complete makeover. The new illustration is based on Tove Jansson’s book Tales from Moominvalley originally published in 1962. The book has nine different short stories in total. The story used in this illustration is The Hemulen Who Loved Silence. In the story Hemulen works in an amusement park as a ticket puncher. Heavy rain dismantles the whole amusement park and Hemulen moves to live alone in his grandmothers’ old garden. Eventually children gather all the parts back together and build the amusement park back together inside the garden.
