Moominpappa by Lovi wears his signature, a black top hat, with pride. In form he is a very traditional Moomin. Under the round snout is a plump belly. The arms and legs are small and there is a tassel at the end of the long tail. He was created after the original illustrations by Tove Jansson, the beloved author and illustrator of Moomin stories.
The family is the most important thing in the life of this boyish character and he is ready to do anything for Moominmamma and Moomintroll.
Sometimes life in the Moomin Valley begins to bore Moominpappa. That’s when he packs his stuff, sometimes his family too, and goes looking for adventures. Often these adventures occur at the sea and nearby rising islands.
Moominpappa loves the sea and writing. He enjoys talking about the adventures of his youth and diligently writes his memoirs. He is very happy to chat with guests who are spending time at Moomin House. Often, he also sits on the porch of the Moominhouse immersed in his dreams, a cup of steaming coffee in his hand.
In the early 1940s, Finnish artist, illustrator and author Tove Jansson drew a small grumpy troll figure in her autograph. The character was a Moomintroll, the beginning of an entire world full of imaginative personalities and amazing stories of adventures, dreams and tolerance.
