That same year, Little Golden Books published a book sharing the story.
There was a short 3-minute film made but the film we all know and hold dear in our hearts is the 1969 Rankin-Bass television special of the same name.
When I was a child, this television special was one that we watched every year and when I eventually had my own family, we shared the story each year with them, too.
Frosty's popularity continues to endure. He's a timeless Christmas classic and an important part of our pop culture.
This popularity means you probably already know the plot of his story, the snowman who comes to life when children place a magical hat upon his head. Frosty enjoys playing with the children but is unable to tolerate the sun and eventually leaves, promising "He'll be back again someday."
This show is so popular that we love the idea of putting together a package for both the young people in our lives as well as for the older folk who have fond memories of the story. Therefore, on this page, we have assembled a few of the best Frosty the Snowman items available to help you create a wonderful themed set for someone on your list this Christmas.
Start with a copy of the television show and add any of the following...
A Copy of the Book
Of course, your gift set should probably start with a copy of the classic book, as shown here. This is a Little Golden Book style of book and seems appropriate given the fact that the first Frosty book was a Little Golden Book, too.
A Coffee Mug
There do not seem to be any official mugs so I shopped around and found this cute and adorable snowman mug by Fitz and Floyd. It's full of spirit, practical and affordable, too. Find it on Amazon here.
A Plush Toy
I love the Build-A-Bear Workshop plush pieces, like the Frosty the Snowman plush toy, which features Frosty and his hat. There is an accessory kit that will allow you to include his broom, scarf and pipe. There are other stuffed toys that include his friends, Karen and Hocus Pocus. Find it and other Build-A-Bear pieces on Amazon by clicking right here.
A Hallmark Ornament
A Snowman Kit
Another great option is a snowman kit, which contains everything you need to build a snowman except, of course, for the snow! We show below the Burton & Burton set, which cost a bit more, but which appears to have the nicest hat.
A Reusable Tote Bag
Finally, we have included a reuseable totebag that is adorned with the image of a snowman and can be packed with whichever Frosty-themed treats you choose. Be sure to tuck in a couple of edible treats, too! They'll enjoy the goodies and be able to use the bag for years to come.
We hope this page has given you some inspiration for a unique Frosty the Snowman themed gift set!
