Although production of the brown Mug Sniff was discontinued in 2008, a new one was launched in the same year. The turquoise Sniff is still in production. In the imagery Tove Slotte has combined several different comics and other pictures. The original artwork is found in Tove Jansson’s comics #1 Moomin and the Brigands, #2 Moomin and Family Life and the novel Comet in Moominland. Instead of his sometimes fearful self, in this mug Sniff is pictured almost enthusiastic. In the second image Sniff is holding a cat on his lap.
