Ok MW can someone tell me about the pin trading and how it works? I am thinking about buying some off of Ebay but not sure. Please help!
Sure! Pin trading is a blast. :) You can find "official" trading rules if you do a Google search, but here's what you should know -- you can only trade pins for pins (no money can be exchanged). If you want to trade with Cast Members in the parks, make sure they don't have a teal green lanyard -- those are for trading with kids only! I believe you can only trade 2 or 3 pins at a time with Cast Members. You can't give them a pin for trade that they already have on their lanyard. And buying pins on eBay is tricky only because there are so many scrappers (i.e. counterfeit pins) out there now! :( A lot of pins in large eBay lots can be scrappers. You can also check if any of the pins you have trader for are scrappers by using a large magnet -- If the pin is magnetic, it's a scrapper. Most of all, HAVE FUN and enjoy it! I keep a bunch of traders on me all the time and I often just give them away to kids I meet in the parks that are getting started with trading -- it's so fun to watch their faces light up. :) Hope that helps! - BreadAndButterfly  505.3 #343 1:14PM
I love pin trading! What she said 👆! Plus: You can also ask the concierge at each hotel resort and ask to see their pin trader book or board. Also some retail places have a board that they bring out at certain times of day, just inquire wherever you can. - majickingdom79  77.3 #71 1:22PM
Thank you very much. It would be for my princess and prince. This does help out. - purplelooney  10.7 #220 1:26PM
After seeing your question I checked amazon out of curiosity. You have a person there selling them in lots of 30. Read the reviews and their are fakes mixed in with the real ones. The bad thing, is the people that bought them are trading them to get real ones. I would be very wary of buying from eBay as well. I would suggest checking the disneystore website, I am sure there are some pins on sale there. - Lelundrial  439.3 #417 1:58PM
Dont forget theres also Vinylmation™ :-) - UppityPrinceChristian  258.8 #23 3:52PM
