Arabia is bringing new children’s ceramics to daily meals early in 2017. Two playfully illustrated dishes plus a mug prompt children to eat because each spoonful reveals more of an exciting illustration. They are made for kids who can eat themselves and are specially designed for small hands. The pictures show Moomintroll and Little My doing their own thing. This classic ceramic shape is by Richard Lind, first released in the 1990s.
The drawings on the mug match both plates. The Little My plate depicts animals from the zoo. While the Moomins try to hide them, Little My concentrates only on blowing soap bubbles. The Moomintroll plate features treasures from the attic. Moomintroll finds Moominpappa’s old memories through things in the attic and is fascinated by his father’s adventures.
Children’s dishes from the 1950s
Arabia designed its first children’s dishes back in the 1950s. They were also the very first Moomin ceramics ever produced. That series consisted of a small mug and two plates. Later, in the 1990s, Richard Lind gave the current shape to children’s dishes from Arabia: the first series were “Moomin” and “Happy Family”. In the twenty-first century, some new ones appeared, including the “Flying Moomins”, and then “Jungle” and “Roleplay”, had one grip on each side of the mug so children could steady their drink with both hands.
