Also known as the Little My, Mug Dark Yellow is the third mug designed by Camilla Moberg. It was released in 1991 and the production was discontinued in 1999. The original images are from Tove Jansson’s novels Moominland Midwinter and Moominsummer Madness, as well as the comic #17 Moomin and the Comet by Tove and Lars Jansson. The mug pictures Little My in all her playfulness and fierce character. In the images Little My is bravely chasing away Hattifatteners and relaxing, floating in the water by a bed of reeds.
