The cooperation between Lappset and Moomin Characters Ltd began in 2019. Moomin Play by Lappset is a series of Moomin-themed playground equipment. Dedicated to Snufkin, the most recent themed playground launched on the market consists of a versatile tower, a tent and a tunnel. The playground also features a range of elements suitable for balancing or to be used as tables or seats. Snufkin’s Camp can be placed alongside the Moominhouse Yard playground. The products are manufactured in Rovaniemi, Finland, and they have been awarded the Key Flag Symbol in recognition of the jobs their manufacture creates in Finland.
Moomin Play by Lappset is a series of Moomin-themed playground equipment designed for young preschool and school-aged children to support learning and to allow children to experience the Moomin stories in an authentic environment. The product range was created in cooperation with Moomin Characters Ltd for different Moomin characters, and it contains both package solutions and individual products.
“Our cooperation has been very rewarding from the outset precisely because it involves the Moomin characters that are loved by people of all ages and that evoke strong emotional memories. Our playgrounds create a setting where the Moomin stories come to life,” explains Kirsi Svärd, Group Design Manager at Lappset.
Focus on positive values
Lappset's Moomin playgrounds are designed to offer an authentic and fun play environment for children of all ages. The key play element in Snufkin’s Camp symbolises a forest where you can play on three different levels.
This exciting and inclusive forest also invites children with disabilities to play and explore. The climbing tower offers activities on three levels. On the ground, you can play hide-and-seek, test your balance and lounge on a dense fishing net. Climb the triangles to access the second level, and glide down the slide to get back on the ground. To reach the top level, climb up a curved climbing wall. Once you reach the top, you can explore the surroundings with a play telescope, and then take the longer slide to go down. The playground comes with two games: Snufkin’s Labyrinth and a seeking game.
“Lappset shares the positive values of the Moomin stories, including friendship, courage, tolerance, equality and respect for nature. This common denominator has been essential to our cooperation with Moomin Characters Ltd. The Moomin playgrounds are designed for public outdoor spaces and are therefore open to everyone,” Kirsi Svärd stresses.
