    I received a PM from a member that was interested in learning how to get her children ( ages 8 & 5 ) involved in pin trading for the first time .
    My suggestion is for anyone that wants to get their child collecting for the first time . Ebay !!! Once at ebay , whether it be US or UK , type in either Disney lanyard starter set or lot of Disney pins . This member found in her search 15 authentic Disney trading pins for $20. and change . Thats less than $2.00 a pin . And most of you know what you pay at Disney .
    Young children really don't understand the concept of pin trading for hidden mickeys, limited edition , etc .
    The fun of pin trading is collecting what they like and seeing their faces light up in the process .

    Another tip for the kids is look for Cast Members wearing green lanyards . They are the cast members that will only trade with kids ( up to age 12) and if they have a hidden mickey or special pin on , they were most certainly point that out . And then as they meet other CM's if they have matches to that series and the hunt begins .

    My daughters loved their pin trading. This is great advice to all new starters.

    I bought some off ebay & gave them as a present for the girls to open on the plane at take off! Took their mind off the flying for a short time!

    Thanks for sharing Deb xx

    OMG!!!! I just bought a "Peter and the Wolf 1946" pin!!! I used to have this record as a kid & always played it & went along with the book. I still can't believe I found one reasonable. No one can wrangle me out of that one...EVER!!! Not even triple what I paid could do it.
