As the first Moominvalley theme park outside Finland was opened in Japan, Arabia launched an exclusive Moomin mug to be sold only at the theme park in Hanno. The mug was discontinued in 2022. The original images of the characters are from an advertisement designed for Föreningsbanken by Tove Jansson in 1956. The art on the background of the mug is from Tove Jansson’s comic strip #4 Moomin’s Desert Island. In addition to Arabia’s bottom stamp, this special mug has a Moominvalley Park logo on the bottom. The logo was designed by a member of Tove Jansson’s family - a Finnish designer James Zambra.
