This year Arabia gives us two new sets of dishes for kids: Moomintroll and Little My. The plates are 18 cm diameter and one of them features Moomintroll exploring through Moominpappa’s old chest of treasures, tools and souvenirs, while the other one is decorated with animals from the zoo and Little My blowing soap bubbles. The mug, the same in both sets, is 0.18 L in volume, and it matches both plates, showing Moomintroll and Little My hiding the wild animals in the attic.
The images are inspired by Tove Jansson’s comic strip Moominvalley turns jungle. During a drought, Moominmamma plants some tropical seeds found on the shore and a lush rainforest erupts in Moominvalley. The forest is soon populated by wild animals from the zoo set free by Stinky. The police come to take the wild animals back to the zoo and the Moomins hide them in the house. Moomins have to prove that they are not related to hippopotamuses when the police try to capture them too.
These delightful new dishes are now available in our shop Finland Quality Design.
