Mug Winter Games was released for the winter season in 2011. Once again the images were chosen from Tove Jansson’s comic strip #5 Moomin’s Winter Follies. The images were adapted and combined by Tove Slotte. Like the winter mug in 2010, this mug was also accompanied by a set of miniature mugs with the same design, picturing Moomintroll and Snorkmaiden. The miniature mugs were sold in sets of four, and they were very well received. Seasonal stickers have been used in the mugs since 2006.
