I think it looks great on G1 ponies. I don't really like it on G3s that much. I think Hasbro over-did that with G3s. I don't mind it if it lays straight.

@OP - you did post it (I don't know where) and the mods moved it to Corral. So you didn't need to repost it :D it is in the Corral which is now where this one is too...and yeah.

Hopefully the mods will merge the two together for you.

I like it, although it can be a bit difficult to brush and keep in place. However, for me, only 'special' ponies (such as royalty or G2's unicorns) should have it, rather than the masses.

Personally, I don't like it. It's hard to brush and on the few tinsel-hair ponies I've had it's made their hair look AWFUL  :pout:.

I like it :) Even if it's not straight and messy, it's okay. We can't expect ponies to have perfect hair all the time haha

I don't like tinsel much, but it's not a dealbreaker for me. It's not my favourite thing, but if a pony has it, I'll put up with it. I wouldn't de-tinsel or anything like that.

Sometimes it really helps a pony with little hair variation stand out, so I'm all for it. I haven't had too much of a problem taming G3 tinsel yet!

I'm with most of you guys here... love it in theory and when it looks new and nice, but not so much when it gets all wild and out of control!

I hate it. In fact, for quite awhile I avoided any ponies with tinsel to my adult collection. Then I made an exception for G3 Merriweather and have considered making a couple more exceptions.

Definitely no tinsel. I used pluck it out when it was beyond repair, especially when the hair itself was in great condition.

I love tinsel! It's true that it leads its own life sometimes, but it's just so pretty. ^.^

I think I have the same opinion as everyone else... it's pretty, but unruly.

I liked tinsel when I was a kid and didn't really care about the hair being perfect and cared more about playing out a story with them, but now that I'm an adult and a photographer I prefer for hair to look decent. Tinsel is hard to put in place.

I really like tinsel, but I do wonder sometimes if Hasbro could find a replacement that holds up better over time and is easier to style.  I can't resist the sparkliness even in bad condition though!

I love tinsel, but I dislike the kind that frays.... I dont want tinsel thread fray in the hair, it never look good...
