Mug Christmas Surprise was released in the winter of 2009. It’s the fourth seasonal winter mug. Many characters are pictured in the mug, and Tove Slotte used several different images to create the complete design for the mug. The images of Moomintroll, Moominpappa and Moominmamma are found in the original comic strip #19 Moomin Winter by Tove and Lars Jansson. The skiing Hemulen is from Tove Jansson’s novel Moominland Midwinter and Little My from the songbook, Visor från Mumindalen. Seasonal stickers have been used in the mugs since 2006.
