« back to Pin Trading
Hi, about pins trading, for my 2& 5 years old who don't speak English, will they enjoy it? And do stuff member must trade with us if we want to or only if he likes our pins?
Is there any thing like this with action figure?

It is a real pleasure to answer your questions, especially if it is about pin trading! Pin trading is a special and fun activity for my family, especially if we are hunting for a certain type of pin. For example, my son loves to trade his pins for the Yeti character pins (from the Expedition Everest ride in Disney's Animal Kingdom). This is an activity anyone can enjoy even if they don't speak English. I am sure your 5 year old will enjoy it but I am not sure if you would want your 2 year old pin trading. These pins have a small backing which can be choking hazards. I would wait to introduce the little one to pin trading. You can start his/her collection of pins and even trade for them. This is what I do for my 3 year old daughter. I bought her the lanyard and pins she wanted and I trade them for her, but I do not let her handle them.
Pin trading is easy. When you visit Walt Disney World, locate a Cast Member wearing a lanyard with Disney pins and find a pin you'd like. Then present another Disney pin to the Cast Member in trade. Here is some more information on "How to Pin Trade".
As far as I am aware, there is nothing else like pin trading involving action figures.
Hope this helps! Again, thank you for submitting your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!
