This pink Snorkmaiden replaced the discontinued yellow one in 2013. Production of this mug was discontinued in 2019. Tove Slotte designed the mug that pictures Snorkmaiden as the vain character she is. In the mug Snorkmaiden is seen in front of a mirror getting ready, and walking with her jewellery and a cute bag. The original images were found in Tove and Lars Jansson’s comic strip #16 Conscientious Moomin and Tove Jansson’s comic strip #8 Moomin Begins a New Life. A bowl and a plate with the same design were launched simultaneously with the mug. A teaspoon was also released in 2014.
