Moomin MoovieCards are based on Tove and Lars Jansson’s Moomin comic strips and they are sold in bundles. The Moomin family and their friends live an adventurous life in the idyllic and peaceful Moominvalley. Living in harmony with nature is one of the strongest themes, and nature plays a significant role in the Moomin stories.
They are a family of white, round fairy tale characters with large snouts that make them resemble hippopotami. The carefree and adventurous family live in their house in Moominvalley, though in the past, their temporary residences have included a lighthouse and a theatre. They have had many adventures along with their various friends.
The Moomins also appeared in the form of comic strips. Their first appearance was in 1947 in the children's section of Ny Tid newspaper, and they were introduced internationally to English readers in 1954 in the popular London newspaper The Evening News.
Moomins are today very popular in all forms and in 50 different languages: comic strips, books, theatre, opera, TV series and feature films.
