Moomin play area by Junibacken at Stockholm Arlanda Airport
Junibacken has collaborated with Stockholm Arlanda Airport for many years, where Junibacken’s playgrounds have cheered up the life of travelling children. On April 2016 a new play area opened in Terminal 5 which reminds of Junibacken’s Storybook Square. The playground features a creative mix of Moomins, Lasse and Maja, Pettson and Findus and a man from the story Sagan om det röda äpplet. The theme of the airport’s playground is of course “travel”. At the indoor playground you can play, climb, and have fun with everything you see!
Remeber to visit the playground if you travel in Stockholm via Arlanda Airport!
Moomin family cabins at cruiseferries sailing between Helsinki and Stockholm
Finnish cruiseferries Silja Serenade and Silja Symphony both have ten new Moomin family cabins. Moomintroll and Little My are familiar and an extremely cheerful sight already while boarding as well as during the cruise at the Moomin disco, playgrounds and corridors but the Moomin family cabins guarantee an overall Moomin atmosphere during the whole boat trip between Helsinki and Stockholm.
