I spent 10 minutes in a Helsinki shop and saw over 30 Moomin related products

Moomins are as iconic to Finland as coffee or casual nakedness. The cute white trolls attract our attention and make us feel warm inside, which makes us more likely to buy products that bare their adorable faces. Perhaps that’s the reason companies pay so much for the Moomin image, and how the Moomin brand earns over 500 million euros a year in licencing alone.

Just check out how many Moomins I saw on a 10-minute walkabout in a Helsinki supermarket.

1. Moomin Fiskars scissors

Two iconic Finnish brands for the price of one.

2. Snorkmaiden colouring pencils

You would think they'd put more than one white pencil in this set.

3. Nordqvist Moomin Tea

"the best moment of the day", the green one "adventurer's snack" and the red one "everything fun is good for your stomach".

4. Moomin House jug

I always feel guilty about flooding the Moomin house while using this one.

5. Moomin plates

Plates are sold with the same print as the iconic Moomin mugs.

6. Moomin Table Candles

Melting Moomin faces AHHHHHHHH!!!

Perfect for Moomin soda.

8. Moomin shaped cookies

Not made with real Moomins.

9. More Moomin shaped cookies

Neither are these!

I had no idea that Moomins also made honey. Maybe they paid off Moomin house with honey money?

Tastes as sweet as a Moomin.

Take the Moomins on your travels.
