Moomin

The Moomins and their friends are the main characters in the Finnish illustrator and writer Tove Jansson´s books about Moomin (Muumit in Finnish and Mumin in Swedish). The nine books were written between 1945 and 1970, and after a couple of years they became a great succes both in Finland and all over the world, according to Wikipedia The Moomins have fans in the UK, Russia, Japan, Sweden and of course Finland. There has been many animated TV shows based on Moomin´s adventures, one of them had over 100 episodes. You can read more about Moomin here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moomin

Moomin live in a big, blue house, the Moominhouse, in Moominvalley with his family, Moominmamma and Moominpappa. Moomins looks somewhat like hippos because of their long snouts, and have white skin and very short legs.

My brick-built model of Moomin isn´t entirely accurate to Moomin in the TV shows an Jansson´s illustrations, but it would certainly appeal to many Moomin fans. The Moomins have yet to appear in Lego form, and there are very few Moomin MOC:s on the internet, so I hope people like it. Even though it looks very bulky, the legs and arms are poseable, as well as the head (which is on a ball joint) and the tail. This allows You to pose it in many different poses and play with it, too.
