The Moomin family have their very own shop in Covent Garden. Inside, you can buy books, toys and merchandise, all displayed in little blue Moomin "houses", with all sorts of goodies to tempt young and old. Serious fans of Moomintroll, his family and friends are spoilt for choice, too, with rare memorabilia and limited-edition items for sale, including prints of the original illustrations.

Gorgeous fun for children and Japanese tourists, the staircase up to an almost larger selection of Muumi products than in Forum Helsinki. Two lovely store attendants, not pushy or intrusive at all. The staircase art and the Niiskuneiti and Muumipeikko atop the stairs is the best photo-op for kids.
They have Volume 1-5 of the English Muumi DVDs, and soft and hard cover versions of books.

They have anything from magnets, cups, plates, towels, candle holders, computer cases to books and DVDs. We got some sturdy stainless steel forks and are happy with the purchase.
