Arabia Moomin mug Moominvalley Park Japan 2023 is also known as the “New Japan Moomin mug”. The mug’s artwork is partly based on the same artwork as the “Old Japan mug” was. The design originates from Tove Jansson’s ad, that she made for the Föreningsbanken Bank in 1956.
On the older mug Tove Slotte combined it with bits and pieces from the Moomin comic “Desert Island”, but on the newer mug the top is based on a book Tales from Moominvalley.
Estimating the price for this Moomin mug is difficult. It is only sold in Japan for 30 to 40€, but outside of the country the mugs will be worth more. What is the value of the mug? The time will tell…
Moominvalley Park Japan
The Moominvalley Park was opened in Hanno, Saitama, Japan in March 2019. Next to the Moomin theme park, there is “Metsä village”, an area with Finnish shops, restaurants and products. It has an interesting vibe, since you are in Japan, yet surrounded by Finnish items and even the signs are in Finnish! Check out a Video of Moominvalley Park Japan.
