The Moomin ABC mugs are decorated with adorable initials featuring various Moomin characters. The H mug features Sniff eyeing a throng of bad language scurrying about, with the Moomins trying to swipe them back. The little creatures escaped from a box found at sea – the Moomins think it might have belonged to a sailor who quit swearing and packed the bad language away. The illustration on the mug’s other side is based on the comic Moomin Family Life.
The H mug is part of the “Reading, writing and the Moomins” initiative that promotes the importance of literacy and the joys of reading. The mugs' Moomin alphabet is based on Tove Jansson’s hand-drawn initial capitals and lettering created for the book The Memoirs of Moominpappa as well as her maps of Moominvalley. The mugs' form is familiar from the Iittala Teema series, but in contrast to most Moomin mugs, the ABC mugs’ size is larger: 4 dl.
