My friend introduced me to the Moomins when I was about 12 and I've loved them ever since. My favourite characters are Too-Ticky, Snufkin, Little My and Moomintroll himself, although I could continue that list forever because it is so hard to choose favourites when they are all so special and interesting. My bedroom is Moomin-themed, and I love to collect Moomin figures and plushies, there's just something very reassuring and wholesome about them.

My favourite book is probably Tales from Moominvalley and I haven't watched much of the television series but I love the 1990 animation and the recent Moominvalley series is so precious! Moomins on the Riviera is very sweet, too.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope to help out with keeping this Wiki active and helping this community of fellow Moomin fans flourish.

As of May 2nd 2019 I am an admin on the Moomin Wiki! I'm here to help, and here to keep our Wiki looking shipshape and making sure that our community is doing okay, so don't hesitate to message me if you have any queries or just want to say hi!

We've got 2,797 pages, 231 articles, and 9,209 total edits made to the wiki so far! Look at us go! Thanks to all who have contributed, and hello to our current 9 active users!

A note for all new (and maybe old) Moomin fans who may be coming to this Wiki to add something that they consider very entertaining to one of our pages, probably Snufkin's page: Don't. Please don't.

I need to be professional and practical about everything that happens here, as an admin, and as someone who genuinely really cares about building up this Wiki to be a really useful and reliable collection of Moomin information, and I try to remain impartial about things like this, but outside of that I really want to say look, I get it. Moomintroll and Snufkin can easily be seen as sweethearts, that's how I've always interpreted it, and it could be that that's exactly what Tove Jansson intended, and it's very nice and wholesome, and I support every single person who also sees them that way, but please remember that this is a Wiki and please have some respect for all of us who volunteer to work on this Wiki in our free time.

We cannot just bend the rules and allow every single interpretation to have it's place alongside facts on these pages, however harmless they are or however obvious they may seem. There is a lot of room on the internet for discussion on the very obvious LGBT themes in Tove's work, but please don't do it on these article pages. Just make a comment or start a Discussion or something instead of being the fifteenth person to put 'be gay do crime' on Snufkin's page this week. It was funny maybe the first time but now it's just disappointing that so many people keep having so little disregard for the people behind this Wiki. Thank you.
