I have just seen some fantastic news about Pin Trading
Over the last few months Disney Store UK have been selling a small range of pins online and in London stores.
In January I noticed that a lot of the pins had sold out and didn't appear on the website. I asked a Disney Store Cast Member and she told me that it was a trial and it was popular. I didn't think about it anymore until I found a webpage on the official Disney Store webpage! http://disneystore-shopping.disney.co.uk/pins.aspx
Here is what is says about Pin Trading:
The Walt Disney Company has always offered collectible Disney pins in each of its Parks and Resorts around the world. In 1999 we introduced the tradition of Disney Pin Trading. Today, thousands of Guests trade pins with other Guests and Cast Members from around the world. This year, Pin Trading is coming to the Disney Store in the UK. Our Cast Members are busy getting a collection together so that they will soon be able to start trading with our Guests. You can start collecting pins online and in our stores very soon. We will be releasing new pins every month including Limited Editions and Online Exclusives. Why not start a collection yourself?
With the details of the initial range:
and the details of the first wave of Limited Edition pins:
as you can see the Limited Edition pins are in 3 category's!
Event Edition - part of Pin Trading events?
Online Edition - Only available online?
Limited Edition - available instore?
I personally think that this is great news
But I do not yet know when they will start selling the pins
