Moomintroll mug from Arabia’s Moomin collection portrays Moomintroll and a small Martian who has landed in the Moominvalley. The two are able to communicate through a magic box. Released in 2019, the illustration is based on Tove Jansson’s comic Moomin and the Martians from 1957.
In 2019, the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child will turn 30. To support children’s rights and equality, Arabia donates one euro from each Ninny or Moomintroll mug sold during 2019 to local activities of Save the Children in all countries where the mugs are sold.
The mugs, bowls and plates of Arabia’s Moomin Classics tableware collection illustrate the characters of the Moominvalley from the front and behind. First pieces of Arabia’s Moomin tableware came out already in the 1950s, and the large-scale production began in 1990. All the illustrations are done by Tove Slotte who draws inspiration from the original drawings by Tove Jansson. The form of the collection comes from Arabia’s timeless, ceramic Teema tableware designed by Kaj Franck.
