Mug Moment on the Shore was released in the summer of 2015. Typically for a seasonal summer mug, there are green and watery blue colours on the sunny yellow mug. Designer Tove Slotte found the original images for her design from Tove Jansson’s comic strip #9 Moomin falls in Love. In the comic Moomintroll and an acrobat called Emeraldo set up a camp in the mountains. A detail the 2012 - 2015 seasonal mugs have in common is that Tove Slotte chose to use some of the less known characters in her design. Seasonal stickers have been used in the mugs since 2006.
