    They did not really run out of ideas. I think they needed a mascot for pins.

    The name is the worst macot name ever.

    Ok.... I think that it is now time to retire the pins. When the best idea you can come up with is a pin back, it's time to close up shop.

    People will buy it nonetheless...I saw a woman buy over $300 worth of pins last July.
    I think the obsessive-compulsives are the best pin buying customers with their "Must have them all!!!" mentality.

    More power to those who have to have them all. They keep Disney in the black for mechandising so the rest of us don't have to spend as much money.
    mini-V What will you celebrate?

    Yeah, that's what they'll do...they'll keep the prices down. Just like they do for admission, food, souvenirs, etc. Thank goodness for those who spend like drunken sailors!

    Re: They've Run Out of New Pin Ideas

    ok... i don't like the whole pin mascot idea very much, I mean, We have mickey, what other mascot could compare to him?

    But, I really don't think pins should be retired, and I don't think there's anything wrong with spending $300 on pins. I've bought $300 worth of pins at once. You're being rather easy to judge people. Maybe she's been saving, or she wasn't buying them all for herself. There are plenty of pin ideas left, and I hope they never stop pin trading, it is such a great way of getting little souvenirs. There are so many great pins, it's not like they will care if not 1 person buys this pin.

To all people, regardless of their birth the right to live, to work, to be themselves, and to become whatever their visions can combine to make them. This is the promise of America...And I foresee the American adventure to continue for a long, long time!

    I think it is cute. The name is a little stupid. I really do not think they are running out of ideas.

    I don't see anything wrong with the name. I think it suits him very well. After all, he IS a "pin back".

    But I will agree that they are not running out of ideas.
