Cupcakeland was a CGI animated musical direct-to-DVD short film that was pre-packaged with various Cupcake Surprise dolls during early 2006, during their first series launch. It was created in order to promote the dolls as a brand new line from Radica Games, whom planned on reviving the old Tonka line from the 1990s for a brand new generation. On October 3rd, 2006, Mattel acquired the company, and the toy line was liquidated.
On June 10th, 2021, the short was uploaded to YouTube channel Lost Media Cabin, and the 6 minute short was restored.
The short animation features the adventures of a lonely young girl named Sandra as she struggles to fit into her new town. As a result, she's transported to the world of Cupcakeland for the very first time and is taught a valuable lesson about friendship by her new doll friends.
