Dive is the first seasonal Moomin mug and it was released for the summer season in 2006. The mirroring images on both sides of the mug are originally from Tove Jansson’s comic strip #5 Moomin’s Winter Follies. Striped in two shades of blue and green, the mug depicts the colours and life underwater. In an unpublished version Dive with Seashells there are drawings of corals and seashells. The version was abandoned at the last minute, but a small quantity of mugs with the drawings had already made it to production. Those mugs were given away to the staff of the Arabia factory. The drafts of the mug design were on display at Arabia’s exhibition in 2014. The seasonal mugs of 2006 are more rare than the ones released later. The production volumes of the later releases have been higher. The Seasonal product 2006 -stickers were added to the mugs, and after this seasonal stickers have been used in these products each year.
