Get To Know The Moomin!

Good natured and enthusiastic, the endearing Moomin family is nothing if not fun loving and adventurous. The creation of Swedish speaking Finnish illustrator and writer, Tove Jansson, the Moomins popped on to the scene in 1945 in a book published in Swedish by Söderström & Co. The Moomins have also appeared in comic strips since 1954 and television series from 1969. Tove’s Moomin books have been translated into about fifty languages, and have been thoroughly enjoyed by kids and adults alike throughout the years. Furthermore, the lovable family has been portrayed in various plays, theme parks and productions around the world. Today you’ll even find delightful Moomin shops and cafés around the globe.

The Moomins are easily recognizable from their gentle, round appearance and large snouts that make them resemble a hippopotamus. They live in a big, blue house in Moominvalley. Moominvalley is a peaceful place where the Moomins live in harmony with nature and get into all sorts of mischief and adventure. A path leads from the Moominhouse to the seashore. The Moomins love the sea and enjoy the beach. Sometimes, they set out on adventurous journeys that take them far from Moominvalley, but they know they always have a safe home to return to. Just like bears, come fall the Moomins prepare to hibernate. By the time Moominvalley is covered in snow, the Moomins will be in a deep sleep.
