The seasonal winter mug in 2014 was called Skiing with Mr. Brisk. Designer Tove Slotte decided to add some grey tones to the design. A bowl and decorative miniature mugs with the same images were released at the same time. In the mug the Moomin family is seen skiing and stumbling in the snow. The original images are from Tove Jansson’s comic strip #5 Moomin’s Winter Follies. Seasonal stickers have been used in the mugs since 2006.
