    Pixie - First - WELCOME to the boards!

    second, while I do not collect pins, my daughter has really gotten into it. My favorite (of the ones she has collected so far) are the windows that open to reveal a princess inside. Not sure what they are called... but she has a few of them.

    What is your favorite Pixie?

    Adam...I have the tinkerbell one with the little windows! They are so cute and are called the Hinged Princess Pins! I love any of them that are bit unusual.


    Hmm...well...It is all Pirate's fault for getting me (and EVERYONE ELSE in my family) addicted. I would have to say the most treasued ones are my pins from the Princess Ball. It has a special Walt Pin, all the Princesses and the Princes. Took forever to find each one of them, but I have the entire set!

    I love just about ANY tinkerbell pin...and..am thinking of collecting ride attraction pins next. I like the trading part alot, as it opens doors to talk to some of the COOLEST CM's!

    I simply adore all my cats, I have 28 DIFFERENT Disney cats that I found by trading, mostly with CMs, and always looking for new ones, but I've since moved onto dogs cause the well is running dry.

    Now I havent started collecting pins - but I do have several - I have the 101 dalmations tin set that came out 10 years ago and I always buy a tink pin while I am there - I have the hinged Tink compact looking one with the latern on the front - love that one - but I think my favorite is Tink that says in the limelight -- you know the whole theatre thing - that one is great!

    Last time I got one you make yourself. That was fun but a little expensive. I generally buy a pin that represents something special. This Christmas we were in Epcot so I bought my son the Epcot Christmas pin. We'll always remember where we were when we got that one.

    My fav is one I got via eBay from Disney. I got two of the 25 they were selling. Magician Mickey from 1937. Mickey is pulling Donald out of a hat.

    I'm not really into the whole trading aspect of it. guess I just don't get it? I do have several pins, but I tend to only spend my money on certain ones that I really like. I have a framed peice of cork board that I painted in Disney-ish colors and i stick my pins on there. If I stay on property I will usually get one for my resort. other than that i just grab the ones that are of my fave characters or that have a great design.

    Oh I forgot about trading.. There are some guests who don't realize that some Cms in operations positions sometimes don't have the time to trade at the moment - there are several parts of park operation that are far far more important.
