I loved Moominworld!

I think the kids loved the trip too. It was a long day, but we all survived and had lots to see.

This is a picture intensive post, with a couple of stories thrown in.

Tadbit, on the bus ride there, wearing a Moomin Troll (Muumipeikko) onsie. She’s playing with a tic-tac-toe set I made.

Paxlet wearing a Moomin shirt. Never sitting still.

Our view as we walk across the bridge to Moominworld island. It was the most beautiful, sunny, warm day. At times almost too hot, but then we’d get in some shade and it was perfect.

The Moomin family house. I wish I had more time and a slower pace, instead of chasing after one or both kids, to check out all the details in this house and every other place. The few I did get to see were amazing!

Moomin Troll’s play house (next to his parents’ house). There’s a slide on the right hand side to get down.

Moominpappa. When Tadbit first saw Moominpappa and touched his nose, she giggled. A bit later, as he gave us his full attention, she squeaked a bit in fear.

Resting (with a wiggly Tadbit on my lap) in a hammock that oh so love-ily matched my hair!

Snufkin and a goofy me. He walked by me and commented that my hair color matched his clothes color. I replied and said it is a great color. 🙂

This toy ship was a common sleeping room in the Moomin family house. Just one of the many details.

The backside of Little My (Pikku Myy). She’s always been one of my favorite characters. A bit naughty and definitely mischievous. I unfortunately didn’t get any pictures of her front side.

Stinky (Haisuli) and a police. Stinky is a troublemaker and often in jail. He causes trouble wherever he goes. Just before I took this picture, the police asked Stinky when was the last time he had taken a shower, because he stunk. The little boy leaned in to smell him! Hahaha!

Here are some links if you want to see more pictures of the Moomin and learn a bit more about the characters.

Many characters with their names in English. And Finnish. I personally like some of the names better in Finnish, as they make more sense. Or maybe I am just used to them that way.

A list describing who is who and their personality.
This link has the Swedish names along with descriptions.
