Disney Pin Trading is the buying and trading of collectible pins and related items featuring Disney characters, attractions, icons, and other elements. Many thousands of unique pins have been created over the years. Pins are available for a limited time; the base price for a pin is US$6.95. Limited edition pins, and special pins (e.g. pins that have a dangle, pin-on-pin, flocking, lenticular, light-up, moving element, 3-D element, etc.) cost up to $14.95.Featured Artist and Jumbo Pins cost between $20 and $35 and Super Jumbo pins cost upwards of, and sometimes beyond, $75.
Each guest may purchase up to two pins of each style per day. Pins are frequently released at special events, movie premiers, pin trading events or to commemorate the opening day of a new attraction. Some pins have appreciated well on the secondary market and have reached prices of over US$500 at venues such as eBay. Most Disney pins are enamel or enamel cloisonnÃ© with a metal base.
Ok so I got the wiki definition out of the way. There are hundreds of websites devoted to pin trading, and thousand of ebay auctions hosting the many different pins. My family and I have been pin trading for years. I look at it as a inexpensive memento you can take home with you to remind you of your recent trip. Other people collect them, trade them, even make a living off of buying and selling them..See ebay..
There are many different reasons people love collecting these adorable pins. But one question I have always wondered was what Pin is the most popular pin? Well the people over at the Disney Parks Blog was daring enough to take on that question. Click on the picture above for the answer.
