Things I learned today:
- There is an official Moomin Twitter account.
- The Moomins also have a blog.
- There are a number of apps and games involving the Moomins, including an upcoming Japanese-made role-playing Moomin game where, if you register early, you get a digital hattifattener boat. DIGITAL HATTIFATTENER BOAT, PEOPLE.
- There’s a new animated film out called Moomins on the Riviera, which I somehow managed to miss entirely last year.
- I need every damn thing in the Moomin online shop, but also especially Snorkmaiden and Hattifatteners beach towels, plush Groke, this stunning duvet set, and WHOA, laptop stickers!
- That image, by the way, is from the live action 1969 TV series that featured human actors in giant Moomin suits, sometimes appearing without their heads! “Taking of the heads caused a Moomin fear among children in Sweden and Moomins were considered as a scary characters. Nowadays it is not allowed Moomins to show up without the head.” I BET.
