Moomins on the Move in new official app, launched this month at Kew Gardens

Moomin Move App

Moomin Characters has teamed up with Finnish game studio RealityXpander to launch the app in various locations throughout the year.

The beloved Finnish fantasy characters the Moomins – stars of both books and comics, who will have a big presence at the Lakes International Comic Art Festival in October – are heading to phones with a new augmented reality app, Moomin Move, which is now available on iOS and Android.

Instead, it focuses on designated locations and is being launched as part of Moomin Adventures Easter Festival at London’s Kew GardensThe app will only be available for use at this London location, with other official Moomin locations rolling out later in the year.
