Moomin Summer Madness!

July 23rd, 2014

 

Moomin Summer Madness!


There’s a lot to look forward to over the next few weeks for Moomin fans, as Tove Jansson’s 100th birthday is approaching Fast. The Moomin author and illustrator was born in Helskini on August 9th 1914.
 


 

MOOMIN-FSDU

The Moomins first came into existence in 1945, when Tove published the first Moomin book, ‘The Moomins and the Great Flood’. The books have since been translated into 40 different languages and have been adapted for TV, Film, Opera and Radio.

 

The Moomin comic strip ran for 20 years in 120 different newspapers, reaching approximately 20 million readers a day!

 

The Moomins are still hugely popular, with Moomin merchandise being snapped by consumers up and down the UK every day.

 

Many of our customers have already started buying in our Moomin products, with fantastic results! It is now one of our top three product ranges!

 

If you haven’t tried the products out in your shop yet, now is the time to, as Moomin will be receiving a huge amount of publicity over the next few weeks, especially with the ‘Moomin Summer Madness‘ event taking place in Covent Garden on August 9th and 10th, and many other events taking place world-wide throughout the year! Why not join in with the Moomin madness and hold your own event?

 

In our Moomin collection we have 11 x 14 prints, postcards, tea towels, magnets, canvases and postcard packs. We also offer a range of Moomin merchandising solutions!

Miffy Turns 59…

June 20th, 2014

Miffy was created by Dick Bruna in 1955, when telling his young son a story about a little rabbit they had seen on a rainy holiday, playing in the dunes…

 

MIFFY002

She has since lived a very exciting 59 years! Miffy has visited the zoo, learnt how to ride a bike, made friends at school, and more recently- turned her hand to art in ‘Miffy the Artist’!

 
This year we have seen the release of some new ‘Thoroughly Modern Miffy’ books. Award-winning poet, Tony Mitton, has been revamping some Miffy classics to appeal more to a modern British audience. So far ‘Miffy at the Gallery’ and ‘Miffy at the Zoo’ have been released, with more titles to come throughout the year.

 
The Miffy books have sold over 85 million copies worldwide, and the brand is said to be worth £150 million! A lot of this revenue comes from merchandise, which is where we come in!

 
We are extremely pleased to be a licensed manufacturer and wholesaler of Miffy merchandise! We recently launched a whole range of ridiculously cute Miffy products! We have mini posters, postcards, postcard packs, A6 magnetic notepads, magnets, tote bags and tea towels!

Roald Dahl News!

April 30th, 2014

Hollywood’s best known film director, Steven Spielberg, has been announced as producing the brand new BFG film adaptation!

So far film adaptations of Roald Dahl‘s have been hugely popular (see Matilda, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and James and the Giant Peach) and having such a massively successful director running the show has got us very excited indeed.

Not only is Spielberg directing the Big Friendly Giant movie, Melissa Mathison is going to be the screenwriter, who Spielberg last worked with on 80’s blockbuster, E.T.

We don’t know yet who the cast will be, but it’s set to be released in 2016, and gruesome Dahl characters such as the ‘Bonecruncher’ and ‘Fleshlumpeater’ will be bought to life. We hope Spielberg somehow manages to keep the characteristics of the Quentin Blake illustrations which we all love so much! Tim Burton certainly did a good job reacting this in James and the Giant Peach!

 

“Every night, when the world is sleeping, big gruesome giants guzzle up whoppsy-whiffling human beans. And there’s only one giant who can stop them – the BFG. He’s the kindest giant there is and, with his friend Sophie in his top pocket, he sets out to rid the world of the Bloodbottler, the Fleshlumpeater and all their rotsome friends forever . . .”

With Matilda and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory both performing fantastically in the West End, and the BFG movie bound to be hitting the headlines when it goes into production, Now is a great time to start stocking up on our Roald Dahl Prints and gifts!
