    Pins!

    Does anyone here trade pins? How many pins are you up too? Do you buy any certain pins (rides, characters, theme parks,etc...)

    Re: Pins!

    I moved this thread to Pin Collecting, where it will be better suited.

    I collect, but I don't trade. So far I have 48 pins. 15 of them are Alice in Wonderland. I have a few Tinker Bells (mostly Tinker Bell behaving badly), a few villain pins, a bunch of Pixar pins, and several holiday and event pins.

    A few trips ago, however, I accidentally bought an Alice pin that I already own. I could trade that one, but I keep forgetting to bring it with me to WDW.

    Re: Pins!

    I trade. I've got about 100 pins, if I were to guess. 3 lanyards with ~15 - 20 pins each, and a pencil box full of "trading pins" (cheaper pins that I attach no special value to, for example, the "baby princess" pins that I have a ton of).

    The kid has about 60 in her collection, again a guess, and another 30 or so on her trip lanyards. She's got a book full, plus 3 lanyards.

    we trade we buy pins in bulk on ebay right before trip and those since they are just really cheaper pins and not ones most people would want we trade those for the pins we want inside disney also we buy the ones we fall in love with some you will never find on a cm since noone would trade them. we have around 4 lanyards 1 with traders 3 we have hanging on her wall that she doesn't want to get rid of!

    Wow! Sounds like you both have quite a collection. And I so wish we were at Disney the same time. I LOVE those baby Princess pins but I just can't see spending $30 for them. Would've been cool to meet a fellow TD'er and trade, haha.

    Anyways., I've got about 75 pins. While at WDW I put the pins I'm willing to trade on a lanyard and wear that one for the day. If I trade and get a pin I want to keep, I switch it to a different lanyard when we get back to the room and put another tradable one on. I've only traded a couple times on my trip 2 weeks ago. I've started buying pins in bulk from websites such as EBay and Etsy. Then, if I see one I really want at the parks, I'll get it if I hadn't found it online. I only but a few at the parks though since I can get them cheap online. I've mostly been getting character pins lately. I had thought about getting ride pins last trip but I decided is got my memories of those rides so I'll just get character pins. At home I display them on a stretched canvas.

    I like to trade pins when I'm in the park. It's a good time. I do have a certain type of pin that I collect. I collect the Disney Dreams Collection pins. They were only sold at Disneyland in a limited edition of 1000. Some of them are super hard to find. Out of the 24 pins, I have 18.
