Nyoro Nyoro in Moominvalley / ムーミン谷のニョロニョロ

Nyoro Nyoro in Japan is the name of a creature in Tove Jansson‘s Moomin series – they are pictured on the third stamp, called Hattifattener in English translations.  They walk swayingly together and gather in mass numbers when a storm is arriving… then get electrified in a ceremonial manner!

These three stamps from ‘Hur gick det sen? (1952)’ are showing beverage/tea time in Moominvalley.  Oh no, not a drop left in a flask…
