The Moomins are the characters in an awesome series of comics written/illustrated by Finnish artist Tove Jansson. At some point in the 80s (I think), a Japanese company made an animated series based on the Moomins, which led to their explosive popularity in Japan...so random! I also wrote a bit about them in this entry from nearly 3 years ago.
ok, let me just say that being nerdy, i went to the arabia factory and spotted many, many asian tourists like myself ogling the moomin-related items in the gift shop!ReplyDelete
