Available from March 5, 2024 In the spring of 2024, the Muskrat will receive his first own character mug. He is a peace-loving philosopher who reads gloomy works and shares his pessimistic views of the future with others. He enjoys his time best in the Moomin family's hammock with his favorite book. The mug will become part of the ongoing production and the Arabia Moomin classic mugs series. The "Muskrat in the Cave" tableware series includes a mug, a bowl, and a plate. The illustrations are based on the book "Moomin and the Magician's Hat" by Tove Jansson from 1948. The illustrations for the tableware series were made by Tove Slotte, who retired in 2022.
