Sniff got his first mug in 2002. The brown Mug Sniff is one of the most desired character mugs, as it was only manufactured for six years. The production was discontinued in 2008, so the volume of production was lower than in the other character mugs. Sniff’s undying interest in wealth and animals is pictured in the mug. Tove Slotte chose the pictures from Tove Jansson’s novel Comet in Moominland as well as from the comic strip #2 Moomin and Family Life.
