Moomins are a quintessential part of Finnish culture
The Moomins, those charming and whimsical white trolls, have left a significant mark on Finnish culture and history, and captured the hearts of people around the world.
Tove Jansson, the author and illustrator behind the Moomins, was a pioneer who paved the way for female artists. Moomin stories not only entertain children but unfold a deeper meaning for adults. Swedish-speaking Jansson brought to light values like inclusion, acceptance, and community that are important pillars of modern Nordic societies.
Today, you can find the Moomins in books and animated TV shows as well as in museums, cruise ships, theme parks, and even tableware!
