The Moomins were created by Tove Jansson. She got inspired from life around her, friends and family members. Someone was full of love and joy and another was a little bit grumpy and loved solitude. All pure and beautiful such as they were. One could say that in the beginning the stories were written more for adults. Later they became children's favourites as well. Tove had an extraordinary skill to present everything in a positive way, she showed that life is beautiful as it is and we should enjoy it! With her stories Tove created a life philosophy.
When buying Moomin items you buy more than just a mug or a bowl. You buy a thought and a positive attitude towards life. That is why Moomins are perfect gift both for yourself and your loved ones.
Tove and Lars Jansson's original drawings have been transferred to Arabia's Moomin products thanks to Tove Slotte-Elevant. She has completed the drawings that were limited by cartoon frames, added the measurements to suit mugs, plates and bowls.
