So I'm just designing a Moomin related Christmas present for a friend at work and it got me thinking how much fun a Moomin swap could be  Smiley I love, love, love the colours/ designs used in Moomin artwork  Smiley

I've had a quick search and can't see that one has happened before so wondered if there would be any interest?

In case anyone doesn't know - Moomin's are trolls (who strongly resemble adorable white hippos) who live in the forests of Finland and have starred in their own books and cartoons...and are basically completely gorgeous   Cheesy

If there is any interest then I'd be happy to try my hand at organising (probably not until the New year though  Wink)

If it's a small swap, I might be up for it Smiley I grew up with those rather dark books, before they were doing comics and cartoons and everything. I love Moominpappa at Sea, and Moomin & The Dangerous Midsummer Night Cheesy (I don't understand why all the books have to have "moomin" in the title in english) Oh, and Moominland Midwinter! Cheesy

Yay! I'm so happy there's some interest in this swap  Cheesy

Small suits me as well  Smiley How does a 4 point swap sound...so maybe a medium and two smalls?

I just found out that my boyfriend was a afraid of the moomins as a kid Cheesy They had the german puppet show, I think, which isn't as fluffy as the japanese version Wink
