In 2006, the Strawberry Shortcake DVD "World of Friends" introduced a re-telling of the events of the 1983 "Housewarming Surprise" TV special, with a few changes to the story as well as the cast. While some of her "new" friends from around the world stayed nearly the same (Crepes Suzette), and others underwent minor changes (Almond Tea/Tea Blossom), still others (Mint Tulip, Café Olé) were replaced altogether by new, original characters. Frosty Puff, a warm-hearted girl from icy-cold , was one of these new foreign friends. Although it is not obvious by her cold-weather appearance and attire, Frosty Puff's scent is that of Blackberries, a first in the Strawberry Shortcake toy line. Her pet is a penguin called Freezer Pop. Voiced by Samantha Triba.

When I was at Toy Fair I got to celebrate Strawberry Shortcake’s 35th birthday. I was at the Bridget Direct’s Booth and had some chocolate covered strawberries, strawberry champagne and strawberry shortcake. I also got to take a look at the upcoming Strawberry Shortcake toys and some beautiful Strawberry Shortcake cards from Papyrus. There were a lot of celebrations happening around Strawberry Shortcake’s birthday. Take a look at all the festivities below.
