This special mug was released on Tove Jansson’s birthday, August 9th 2021. The drawn images take us to a sunset on a beautiful day. It’s the first day of the spring, and Moomintroll and Moominmamma are seen waiting for Snufkin to return after the long winter. The original images are found in Tove Jansson’s novel Moominland Midwinter, and from the songbook Visor från Mumindalen. This mug was sold in a cardboard gift box with the same design. The release of this Moomin’s day special mug was widely advertised, and the mug was sold out in 24 hours. The mug doesn’t have a special bottom stamp. It has the same stamp as the regular seasonal products, and the year of release (2021).
