Mug Winter Forest is the 2012 seasonal winter mug. The mug was sold during the winter of 2012-2013. Tove Slotte combined several pieces of art in the mug design. She chose the original images from Lars Jansson’s comic strip #41 Moomin and Aunt Jane. The Little My in the mug is originally from Tove and Lars Jansson’s comic strip #17 Moomin and the Comet. The reindeer seen in the mug was inspired by a letter. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs had ordered a letter from Tove Jansson in 1963 to be handed out as answers to children who had written letters to Santa Claus in Finland. Just like in the previous year, sets of decorative miniature mugs were manufactured and sold as sets of four. Moominpappa and Little My are pictured in these miniature products. Seasonal stickers have been used in the mugs since 2006.
