Archive treasures: Moomin Stockmann display for Easter in 1956

Already in 1956 Moomins were seen at the department store Stockmann in Finland. The Easter display was the first Moomin-themed event at Stockmann and because of the lovely display, all the beautiful Moomin products were sold out. Of course, hundreds of Moomin fans also wanted to meet Tove Jansson, the creator of the Moomins.

The text on the display:

Happy Easter!
And Lucky Spring!
Best wishes on behalf of Stockmann,
the Moomin family

Tove Jansson also created some Moomin Easter illustrations that are beautiful to see.
