Arabia Moomin mug Thingumy and Bob is also known as Thingumy and Bob Green. The name is slightly confusing, since the older Thingumy and Bob Moomin mug was green as well.

This time Thingumy’s and Bob’s suitcase is wide open and you can see the huge shiny ruby inside! 

The meaning of the secret ruby

The ruby that Thingumy and Bob keep hiding is a metaphor for Tove Jansson’s and her then partner’s Vivica Bandler’s secret romantic relationship. Vivica Bandler worked as a director in a theatre at the time.
