    How much are these pins at disney? I think our youngest would like collecting them but I dont want to suggest it if theyre too expensive :/

    Also is there a place where we can go to see all the different ones available so we can try and make a list to get when we go?

    They all vary in price, think they start at about $5.95 and go up to somewhere around $14 i think? We collected them for dd when we went, its cheaper than buying a teddy in each park though! :lol:

    As Kate says the pins vary greatly in price. There are so many different pins that to try and see them all would be almost impossible, especially since there are a goodly number that were limited edition.

    You can check out this site

    Dizpins Pinventory

    They have a huge list of pins, don't know if it is everything, bear in mind that a lot of these pins wont be available anymore.

    Also, to start a collection try looking on Ebay for sellers selling random sets of pins. They usually work out well under £1 a pin you can then trade them for what you like when you get to Disney :thumbsup: We did it last time and saved a fortune and the kids got to trade with the cast members straight away.

    There is a store at DTD which has a HUGE selection. It`s located near to the Earl of Sandwich. I think it`s called "Pin Traders" but I may be wrong there!]

    The $5 ones are very plain and the $14 ones have a moving item on them. The ones inbetween are 3D or colorful.

    Here's Disney's own page about pin collecting and trading.

    Note that there's a link off there to show you what the upcoming pins are. There's also a link to a complete catalog of all the pins that Disney's ever offered. But with over 10,000 pins in that collection, it may take you a while to go through them. :unsure:

    Tom :)macwave:... no... I will not start another collection. Somebody stop me!)

    We started collecting the pins at wdw last year.
    we only got the around $6 ones. we thought it was a good thing to collect, as kate said 'cheaper than a teddy'
    also smaller to bring back home.
    we collected one for all the characters the children met and we pinned them all on a lanyard.

    I found that if I go onto Ebay there are collectors there that sell in blocks of pins. Then I take THOSE pins and trade them for the ones I really want.
