As any good Moomin fan probably knows, in March 2019, Japan opened an entire theme park featuring everyone's favorite Finnish trolls. One of the more popular attractions of the Moomin Valley Theme Park is Moomin Cafe, where visitors can buy goods and diners are treated to delicious menu offerings, as well as the privilege of having a giant cuddly anti-loneliness Moomin plushy sit at your table.

Fortunately, there are also other cafe, stand and shop locations outside of the theme park where you can buy Moomin goods, like this Moomin Shop (Instagram):
