Latest Moomin Purchases

It’s been a really good few weeks for Moomin merchandise lately, and I’m so pleased with the new products that are available. Firstly, Topshop released two new pairs of underwear and a new set of pyjamas in less than a week. They usually only bring out a new pair of underwear every month or two! The pyjamas are very oversized and perfect to snuggle into, with the softest material they’ve ever used. Previously, the grey t-shirts were 92% cotton, 8% polyester,whereas the new white t-shirts are 60% cotton and 40% polyester.

I also got a new Moomin mug from John Lewis recently too. I never usually shop there but I had a £10 voucher so I only paid £4.95 (£14.95 overall) for it! It’s the new 2013 Snorkmaiden mug, and while I love the colour, I think the illustration on the ‘back’ of the mug is so much prettier than the front. It still looks adorable on my shelf though, and makes my collection a huge 41/63!

Artbox recently had a 20% off voucher so I couldn’t help myself getting a few new things. The pens were a necessity, as I’m once again studying in college. The card case will be really handy when I go to London at the end of the month for easy access to my oyster card.

Finally, my copy of Moomin Comic Volume 8 arrived a while ago – look out for a blog post about it which will be published later this week.

As I mentioned earlier, I’m going to London later this month (22nd-24th November), so I’ll definitely be making a trip to the Moomin Shop. I’ve already got my eye on the new Christmas 2013 mug and bowl, and maybe one of the new pencil cases too. I’m excited to go back to the Finnish Christmas fair as I did last year, as well as Hyde Park Winter Wonderland, so I’ll be blogging my adventure!

    Those pyjamas are seriously cute! If they are oversized I might actually have to got to Top Shop and have a look.
    Have fun at the Finnish Christmas Fair! I’m going for the first time this year, I’m excited.

    Hi there,
    I hope you don’t mind me asking, but I notice you say the pyjamas are oversized? What do you mean by that? Can you give any help in choosing what size to order?
    Thanks very much.

    I got all of those same things from Topshop as well and also made a blog post on it :-) Gosh if I lived somewhere near a Moomin store I’d certainly have a lot more Moomin things…I live in Ireland so there is nothing here, not even Artbox. I’ve made most of my Moomin things myself. I found your blog because I was looking to make a moomin dress and yours was the first to come up in search results, I love what you did with the moomin fabric. I am pretty new to blogging and I’d like to link up with you if you like (I don’t know how to do this…as I said, I’m new lol)? I’ve a few Moomin things on my site, I went to the Cafe and Bakery in Tokyo and am hoping to tick off all of the must see moomin places in finland next year :-) Your links to the stores is really helpful as I only knew about the theme park and museum. Fabric stores will be amazing O_O
