My kids had a friend tell them about pin trading, and now they want to try. I have less than a week to figure out what to do and where to start. Tips and ideas would be greatly appreciated!!

What day are you coming to the park? I have a few extra pins they could have to get then started, but I will only be there from Sat-Tues - PrincessKristin  780.8 #240 8:10AM

Such a sweet offer PK., but we won't be there til the eighteenth through twentieth - LilMom  5.8 #16473 12:10PM
Tip number 1 - when you buy your "starter" pins to trade through the parks for other pins, make sure you buy pins that you (and your kids) don't really like! Because otherwise they won't want to trade them away, and you'll end up having to spend more money on pins that they are willing to give up. lol  - jmgphx  323.1 #789 9:10AM
My nieces collected pins just to collect and I started them on pin trading, they're just 6 and 7 years old tho. But we started a pin trading lanyard for them and the first thing that we got was the "mystery pin packs", there's 2 mystery pins inside and you can trade those anywhere. I think that they might be the cheapest to get..like $10 or so. I did get them other pins but the easiest and cheapest way to help start a trading lanyard is with those mystery pins. I hope this helps.. Good luck and remember, just have fun with it. The Cast Members at DL are so sweet and nice, the can help you trade and they'll teach you a couple of things of you ask nicely :) - gigibunny2  242.8 #1447 6:53AM
Where are the "mystery pin packs" sold? - imadisneymommy  26.6 #6322 2:29PM
P.S. We are trying to go as cheap as possible. - LilMom  5.8 #16473 2:03AM
There's actually info on the Disney website about it. It's super fun and there are special cast members that trade with kids. Not too much to know really just get a starter set at the park and have fun!! - mousekepuggie  155.8 #2630 2:12AM
The starter sets usually come with extra pins to trade. When we go we buy a few pins we like to keep on our lanyards and a few to trade. - shodge12  313.8 #828 5:54AM
MW has a trading lounge Click search and a drop down list will appear. You can also search pin spot - E-Ticket  1466.9 #115 6:40AM
I would search through StrawberryGuy's older posts. Lots of great info there. - ScooterMike  1963.0 #83 7:52AM
First you need to decide are you / them collecting and trading for a monetary value or just to get pins that you all love. Get a lanyard and a starter set and trade with CMs wearing teal lanyards only trade with kids. I'd start with them. Have fun!! - JenAnneWho  300.7 #911 8:22AM
Beware of giant lots of fake traders on Ebay! If you decide to buy pins on Ebay, get the sealed packs of pin sets they already sell in the parks. Those are more likely to be legit. - LaneSparrow316  847.0 #218 9:33AM
If you're in the park, I'll be glad to explain everything to you. Most of what I've learned about pin trading is either from other MWers and working in the park. - BaseballMickey_CM  7599.7 #11 2:34PM
We will be in DL on Mon - LilMom  5.8 #16473 11:20PM
As a kid I liked the starter kits. You can trade the ones you don't like from there :) - Raeofsunshine  12.6 #9569 4:17PM
