    TSA and Souvenirs?

    Keep forgetting to ask this but can you bring Pins through Security? When we went to DL last year we packed all of our souvenirs and lo and behold our luggage ended up in Detroit when it was suppose to be in Richmond! Lucky it came next morning on a flight and we picked it up but thinking we lost all our clothes and DL/CA souvenirs we were a wreck! So can you bring souvenirs as long as it's not water globes and stuff like that?

    Re: TSA and Souvenirs?

    I was just on the TSA sight and saw nothing regarding souvenir pins or anything of the like. I saw where you can even take metal scissors with pointed tips and blades shorter than 4 inches, so I'm about 99.9999999999...% sure that pins won't be a problem.
    Doubt too many flight crews or passengers are gonna surrender the plane to an onslaught of less-than-quarter-inch long un-backed Disney pins...even if they're villain pins...!
    Just call the TSA # at your closest airport to find out for sure, though.

    Re: TSA and Souvenirs?

    I actually liked Sounds Dangerous the first time I saw, er heard, it. But the second time I noticed the more run-down look of it.

    But as far as snowglobes and TSA goes, the big ones are definitely a no-go. But last time we went my mom had two of the small ones in her carry-on, not even thinking about the liquid in it. The TSA agent looked at my mom and semi-whispered "Do you have snowglobes?" My mom looked at him, realized it, and her eyes got big and said "Oh no." The TSA agent, again semi-whispering, said "I'll let them go"

    So I don't know if we got lucky, I'm assuming we did, but when they are souvenirs they may be slightly more lenient and depending on how many and the size of them.

    Long story short, put them in your checked baggage
