Who could resist the smell of sea wind in the summer, the sound of waves hitting the shore and the vibrant shades of blue? The sea is a vital part of the Moomin universe, and also very dear for many of us. The beautiful #OURSEA products are a great way to show your love to the sea and take part in saving the Baltic Sea!
How do you like to spend a day by the sea? We compiled a list of Moomin products for beach days, boat trips and long walks along the seashore! For every #OURSEA item sold, a part of the proceeds is donated to the #OURSEA campaign, raising funds to save the Baltic Sea and its cultural heritage.
Sunday walks along the seashore
Long walks are a wonderful way to spend time together with friends and family. Put on a pair of comfy shoes and windproof clothes and you’re ready for some quality time by the sea!
How about a Sunday stroll in matching sweatshirts? The lovely black and grey sweatshirts by Martinex are available both for adults and children. The shirts feature Moominpappa pressing his ear against the ground, as seen in the book Moominpappa at Sea. The same illustration can also be found on a bodysuit for the tiniest ones!
Is this the coolest accessory of them all? A Moomin belt bag! The eco-friendly bag is made from recycled plastic bottles collected from the sea. The bag, which is made in Finland, is available both in blue and red!
When going for long walks outside, it’s nice to have something warm to drink. Martinex’ sea-themed thermos bottles keep the drink temperature for 12 hours. Which one would you choose: the white one or the pink one?
Need something to fill the thermos bottle with? Nordqvist’s “The Spirit of Adventure” tea assortment is a sea lover’s choice! The beautiful tin box includes a selection of four different flavored black teas, such as cookies and cream and bergamot and orange!
“I feel such kinship with everybody who likes boats.”

Do you like boats? If yes, scroll down for tips on how to make your boat trips more Moominous!
Safety first! The cute Moomintroll plush toy is wearing a life jacket. The plush toy keeps children company on longer boat rides, and might motivate them to wear a life jacket, too!
Dropping your boat keys in the sea is not a fun experience, and Anglo Nordic’s floating keyring helps you avoid that! The keyring is made of cork and features a picture of Moomintroll.
It’s important to protect your eyes from the sun, and there’s a Moominous way to do that! Gloryfy’s sunglasses are both stylish and practical. What’s best about the glasses is that they’re unbreakable! The lenses and frame return to their original shape when bended. The glasses are made from the innovative and patented special plastic NBFX.
Muurla’s #OURSEA mug is the perfect companion for boat trips. The durable mug is lightweight and suitable for any kind of outdoor use. On the other side of the mug is an illustration of Snufkin fishing.
Beach days are soon here!
Even though it might still be a bit chilly outside, the days are warming quickly! That means, of course, that it’s time to start preparing for the beach season.
When heading to the beach, a beach bag is of course needed! Pack your towel, snacks and water bottle to the blue and white tote bag by Anglo Nordic. The striped bag features favourite characters such as Snufkin and Hattifatteners.
Relaxing on the beach is a wonderful way to enjoy some time alone. Dive into your own thoughts and write your own sea-inspired stories to the beautiful Moominvalley notebooks by Putinki. The set includes four notebooks with different illustrations.
When the children get tired of all the swimming, it’s time for a game! Barbo Toys’ memory game is suitable for players from 3 years up and is fun for both adults and kids.
We have put together a selection of Moomin products perfect for enjoying the spring and the sunshine. Read more on the blog!
