Available from March 5, 2024 Sniff will receive his third character mug in the spring of 2024, this time in blue. At the same time, the previous turquoise Sniff will be discontinued. The mug will become part of the ongoing production and the Arabia Moomin classic mugs series. In the illustration of this mug, Sniff is offering an elixir to a turtle, which however turns into a bullet train. On the other side of the mug, Sniff is calmly watching the sea at sunset, dreaming of money and fame. He is accompanied by a small character named Sam. The "Sniff on the Beach" tableware series includes a mug, a bowl, and a plate. The illustrations are based on the Moomin comic strip by Tove Jansson from 1954. The illustrations for the tableware series were made by Tove Slotte, who retired in 2022.
