Frosty Lives!

Frosty first came to life on December 14, 1950.

On December 14, 1950 a much loved, classic Christmas song was released. “Frosty the Snowman” was first recorded by Gene Autry and the Cass County Boys. The song tells the fictional tale of a snowman who is magically brought to life by a black top hat that a group of children place atop his head. Although Frosty enjoys frolicking and romping throughout town with the children who constructed him, the sun becomes too much for him to bear and Frosty is forced to leave town, promising his friends that one day he will return.  “I’ll be back again someday…”


Frosty rules!

The song  was subsequently adapted to other media including a popular television special. A lot of us grew up watching the original animated version which debuted in 1969 and was narrated by Jimmy Durante. 




This year, you don’t have to be sad when Frosty leaves.  With our Seeds of Happiness snowmen, you can keep Frosty alive ALL year long. Just like Frosty, our snowmen are handmade; HOWEVER, they will never melt!

Share the Snowmen, share the Smiles!
