Tinsel Dragons are a special breed in three color variations (Gold, Silver and Bronze) obtainable through an event occurring during and/or after the Christmas holidays. Shortly after Tinsels were distributed, they were considered extremely rare and one of the most valuable breeds on the site. However, with a radical increase in popularity, and thus breeding, they are becoming steadily more common. Currently, they are considered between rare and uncommon due to the lineage type and number being a major factor in deciding whether the dragon is highly valued or not (and as a result, the rarity of this dragon has become highly subjective).

Breeding two different colors of Tinsel together will only ever produce one color. The color produced depends on the pairing (i.e. can only ever be the color of one of the parents) and which color is produced appears to be random; it is not always the more common or less common color. Theories suggest that this may be due to the system viewing the colors as the same breed, as it used to with holiday dragons from the same holiday.

The first Tinsels were given to the winners of the Tree Decorating contest in 2010: 5 first-place winners received a Gold Tinsel variation, 10 second-place winners received a Silver Tinsel variation and 15 third-place winners received a Bronze Tinsel variation. Tinsels were again given out as prizes for the Holiday Raffle of 2011 (in number of 5 CB Gold, 10 CB Silver and 15 CB Bronze Tinsels) and then again for the Holiday Raffle of 2013 (alongside Shimmer-scale Dragons this time, in the number of 10 CB Gold, 20 CB Silver and 30 CB Bronze Tinsels). They were distributed again for the Holiday Raffle of 2014, in the number of 50 CB Gold, 100 CB Silver, and 150 CB Bronze Tinsels. As such, there now exist 70 CB Gold, 140 CB Silver and 210 CB Bronze Tinsels. Tinsel Dragons weren't given out in the Holiday Raffle of 2012 because they were replaced by a new kind of prize, the Shimmer-scale Dragons.

This breed does not have an official name, but their spriter, Marrionetta, has stated that she refers to them as Tinsel Dragons. When initially distributed, many members of the DC community referred to them as Prize Dragons, but since the release of the Shimmer-scale Dragons, this term is now used to refer to all the breeds released as prizes. Like Holiday Dragons, this breed was eligible for a Spriter's Alt and Marrionetta was given one with the requested code of (Penk), who is a pink-recolored Silver Tinsel; therefore, Penk's Tinsel eggs are always silver-coloured.

When using Breed sort, this dragon sorts as "Prize 2010" on a user's scroll. For users who have won a Prize Dragon and don't know what to do, there is a user-created topic called CB Prizes: A User Guide on the forum.

TriviaEdit

  • Penk hatched out of a normal Silver Tinsel egg and got her pink coloration by reaching adulthood.
  • These dragons are one of the only to not have a breed description- this is due to them having been designed directly to be prizes as opposed to being a design originally destined for the cave. The spriter also wished to avoid giving a description in order to give players more freedom for creativity and imagine how they want their prize dragon to be.
  • Silver Tinsel egg (Abby) did not have a name until after the introduction of the new Gold sprites, when she was named "I Prefer The Old Golds". During the Valentine 2012 release her name was changed to "Yay For Red Valentine Dragons". Later her name changed to "Silly Nebs - Turn GREEN" and then around 02/28/2012, to "I Eat Purple Nebs And Flamingos". Around 03/05/2012, her name was changed to "Let's Replace People With Geese" then, on 03/15/2012, she was renamed "Never Trust A Brutus"; on 03/20/2012 her name was removed, so she remained unnamed until 04/23/2012, when she got the name "I Still Prefer The Old Golds". On 04/30/2012, she showed the name "Showing Double Spaces Is Evil" then, on 05/08/2012, her name was "All Job And Little DC" while at the end of September 2012 she was renamed "Queen of Balloon Refusals". As of 03/9/2013, her name was "Just Found Myself On Wiki", then the name has once again changed as of 06/13/2013 was "I STILL Prefer The Old Golds". After the introduction of dismorphic sprites for the Horse Dragon on 10/07/2015, the owner expressed again her disappointment through a new name. Despite all these name changes, many users still refer to her as "Abby".
