Moomin Stamps

Before joining the Postcrossing Project, I had never heard of the Moomin. Now, I find them quite interesting.

The Moomins are characters created by the Finnish illustrator and writer Tove Jansson and they appear in nine books, five picture books and a comic strip. They have also been the basis for numerous television series and films. There is even a Theme Park in Finland!
The stories are set in a fictional place in Finland: the Moomin Valley. The Moomin family comprises of the Moominpappa, Moominmamma and their son, Moomintroll. All the stories are quite philosophical and they depict values such as tolerance, love, friendship, generosity and respect for others.

These stamps, issued in 2007 by the Finnish postal services, were sent to me by various postcrossers. I adore them! :)

  1. Those stamps are very whimsical and the philosophies they show can truly inspire us to become better people.

  3. Dear friend,
    My name is Dragan Buskulic and I live in Rijeka , Croatia. My hobby is
    philately (, and I try to collect postcard or cover sent to
    my address from all
    world countries, for now I got mail from 106 countries, but I don´t have any
    from Azores.
    So I would appreciate very much if you could send me postcard or cover from your
    country. In return if you wish I can send you postcards or covers from Croatia.

    Greetings from Croatia
