Backflip Studios often uses holidays and seasons as inspiration for new game content. Holiday and seasonal additions and alterations have included dragons, decorations, and in-game appearances. Limited content is available for the duration of the event, and then retired until the event occurs again.
Backflip Studios provided players a special opportunity to obtain all limited content released and expired at least once before December 18, 2012 during the "Bring 'Em Back" event in December 2012 to January 2013.
