I see many of you are Pin collectors, does anyone collect the pressed coins from the parks? I was thinking this might be a good one for my toddler to start with...

I do!! It's a really inexpensive hobby and they are all so cool!! - Cinderella12  45.6 #112 8:39PM
Yes! My son still loves to get them and it's fun to watch them being pressed;) - PinkElephants  745.7 #259 8:54PM
We collect them (pins and coins, actually). But you might want to invest in a book to hold them in...best not to give small coins to toddlers, even if smushed. Have fun and good luck! - LittleAprilShowers  587.1 #345 9:47PM
I just started this year and it's fun. Good luck with the dimes and quarter machines. - EarthStarTech  6.0 #15959 9:52PM
I do! And I try to collect them from vacation spots too. I think you can still get the penny books from some of the stores around DL. - PickyPicky  14.7 #8685 10:06PM
We do!! But be warned there is a LOT of them. Oh and quarters too!! - Chadco  310.9 #850 10:07PM
My kids do. I got them rolls brand new pennies. They were so disappointed when that shop that has lots of coin pressing machines was closed for renovation on our recent trip. - RapunzalK  196.7 #2032 11:18PM
Actually, old pennies work best! Pre-1982. Just scrub them with ketchup, rinse, and rub with baking soda and water. The arcade does have a lot of machines, but there are plenty of others scattered throughout the resort, including the hotels. - bluefairy  643.8 #313 1:47AM
Thanks for the info, don't even know old coin is actually better. They got some around the park, but that arcade was like a coin paradise to them. They miss the arcade. - RapunzalK  196.7 #2032 2:00AM
Yup, something about the kind of metal in them that doesn't tarnish as badly or something like that. If you clean them as I described, they are almost as shiny as the new ones. - bluefairy  643.8 #313 3:27AM
I only have two of them ... The first was the one I got during the 40th anniversary and the second is the 50th anniversary ... Now I just have to make sure I remember the 60th. - EdLovesAlvena  259.6 #1261 11:20PM
I did that as a kid. I had a whole book type thing that I held them in. I had about almost any possible Disney character you can think of. I think they're in my garage, but I collect them no more. Pins are my new passion :D - Ain1derland  334.9 #724 2:04AM
Thanks everyone! Going to save up change for her so we can do it when we go. Any MUST haves that we should search for?Theyy also change them out so there are different ones all the time, don't they? - disneymommy0910  234.4 #1549 7:34AM
