This year’s winter series from Arabia is called Moomin Spring Winter. They are designed by Tove Slotte based on pictures from Tove Jansson’s book, Moominland Midwinter (1957). Tove Slotte has been working with Arabia for more then 30 years, designing almost all of their Moomin products. She gives new life to these beloved images, bringing them into the 21st century with a fresh crisp look.
As the name of the series suggests, they bring promise of spring while winter is not over. As we know Moomins sleep through the winter, but now Moomintroll has awakened from his winter sleep and goes out to see snow for the very first time. Little My is also getting acquainted with the snow. She discovered that Moominmamma’s silver tray is perfect for sliding down the hill.
As the sun starts to shine a little more and the snow is melting, Snufkin returns to Moominland from his long wandering journey. He knows that Moomintroll has been waiting for him longingly.
After the winter solstice the day light starts growing little by little, and by March spring is in the air, but the Moomin friends can still enjoy the winter games and adventures.
This lovely new Moomin series contains a mug, a bowl, 2 coffee spoons, and a set of 4 mini-mugs for the Christmas tree or home decoration.
