Moomin mugs have undoubtedly taking over the world of collectors. Even if the prints are as simple as doodles of characters meant for children’s books, they are worth a couple of euros for its uniqueness and artistry.
Some of these Moomin mugs are only available during summer and winter seasons, which means that they become unavailable in the markets after that. For the past years since 1990, Arabia has released a couple of summer and winter Moomin mugs of different designs that have pictured what summer and winter should be like.
Summer Moomin Mugs
The first summer Moomin mug was released in 2006. It is named Dive, and its print shows Moomintroll, one of the main characters, is going for a dive. It is designed with stripes with shades of indigo. Its updated cost is €80. In 2007, another summer mug names Dolphin dive featuring Moominpappa is now costing 50. In the years 2008, 2009 and 2010, summer mugs named On The Beach with Snorkmaiden, Siesta featuring Moominpappa and Rose Garden with Moominmamma also costs €50.
