The mug was released in 2008 and it is still in production. Mymble has become one of the most popular Moomin character mugs. In the more intensive rose coloured mug Mymble is seen sitting on the ground, lovestruck and smiling. The images chosen by Tove Slotte were originally from Tove Jansson’s comic #8 Moomin Begins a New Life, and from the novel Midsummer Madness. A colouring experiment was made on this mug as well, and the unique light rose coloured Mug Mymble was sold at an auction in 2017.
