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 alongside the lost cartoon was liquidated.
The short animation features the adventures of a lonely young girl named Sandra as she struggles to fit in to 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.
