This is for Jane of Making it Write – I promised to find Moomin Valley for her.
She said, Yes please – then maybe I can knit them some little socks. I worry about their little toes getting cold.
I am pleased to report that the Moomins have their very own museum opened this year in Tampere, Finland.
The white, hippo-like Moomins are Finnish literature characters created by the much‐loved Swedish‐speaking Finn, writer and artist Tove Jansson in the 1940’s. After the initial success of the comic strips and books, Moomins grew into a world-wide phenomenon through puppet animations and Japanese-style cartoons. Today the Moomins adorn the wings of Finnair (The Official Airline of Moomins), the iconic mugs of Arabia and high-quality bedding of Finlayson, to name a few.
