The original Mug Yellow from the year 1990 was brought back to life: The new version was launched on September 15th 2021. This mug has the same images than the mug in the 1990s, but the order of the images is slightly different. The most noticeable difference to the original is the size; All the earlier Moomin mugs hold the capacity of 0,3 litres, but the new Mug Yellow is slightly bigger, holding 0,4 litres. The original images are from Tove Jansson’s comic strip #18 Moomin and the Golden Tail and from the novels Moominsummer Madness and Moominpappa at Sea. The mug has the basic bottom stamp with the image of a painting Moomin and the text “by ARABIA” on it.
