The 2008 seasonal summer mug is called On the Beach, and it’s the third mug released for a summer season. A bowl with similar design was released at the same time. In the artwork on both sides of the mug Snorkmaiden is seen strolling on the beach in her bikini and carrying a parasol. Designer Tove Slotte found the original images from Tove Jansson’s comic #3 Moomin on the Riviera. Seasonal stickers have been used in the mugs since 2006.
