Moomin was established way back in 1979. Ever since then, Moomin has been voted one of “Top 10 International Brands in China” by the China Animation Licensing Industry 2015, showing its long-term popularity. With this honorable award, Moomin is further strengthening its position as a worldwide brand. These classic characters have had incredible successes in Japan and the Moomin trolls are now on the rise in other parts of Asia as well, showing the immense potential and demand set for these products. Additionally, Moomin has over 300 000 followers on social media, thereby proving this existing demand for their products, which are sure to garner you top-line sales. In addition, with Covid-19 presenting a small threat to those working within offices or public spaces, a personal mug/water bottle is much preferred to one that is shared in a pantry, for example or one that has just been given a quick rinse in the communal kitchen sink!

Next, a brand which needs no introduction, globally renowned brand Snoopy. A crowd favourite, they have over 16.5 million followers on social media. They have an extensive range of products, from food storage, mugs, plate sets, all the way to utensils or chopsticks sets. Having a brand like Snoopy in your store really saves you the hassle, as you can just let the brand sell itself – Marketing is already done, thus exemplifying the existing demand for this brand.
