Moomins (partially a MTFTSB)

There’s a new Moomins album coming out!

Easily the most exciting musical release of the year for me (Kendrick who?) because the first Moomins album is a goddamn treasure.

So anyone want to chat about Moomins or Tove Jansson or anything related?

Would like to own all the Moomins books one day - you know that mythical day when you have a nice place to live with bookshelves and a comfy sofa and a wood burning stove and old dogs and a mug of hot chocolate?

I like the Moomins. Miss Y thinks they’re creepy though, which is sad.
Also I really hope I’m not the only DiSer who still doesn’t know what MTFTSB means.

And yeah, Moonmins are cool, we have loads of Moomin bits in the house and they are super great.

Don’t know if I’d have ever worked that out alone.

Snufkin is a style icon. Oxfam have some really nice Moomin cards in if anyone wants some. Ooh, they don’t have the cards I bought here but they have a whole range of Moomin merch here

Got this Sakuma Drops tin in Japan. Keep it in one of the display cabinets in my dresser :heart_eyes:

It’s the 50 year anniversary of The Summer Book this year, so I’m finally going to read it.

Really like the name Tove (and tangentially, and pronounced kind of similarly, Tuva)

Too-ticky was based on Tove’s partner - Tuulikki <3

Bought a lot of the Moomins coasters in Oxfam recently as Mrs TWI is a fan.
edit: the ones in our local are diff from the ones online there.

Loved the Moomin cafes in Japan and hope to visit the Moomin park next time Im over.

Love the tin!

I was in Finland when it was the Tove 100 jubilee in 2014. Picked up a tin that I think was full of these biscuits Fazer Moomin biscuit 175 g - Fazer Store – Fazer Store EN and a trusty bookmark

Still partially a MTFTSB, but it’s taken a new twist.

Big Moomins and Snufkin fan here too.
