New to the trading world

Like others, I am looking to buy some pins for the kids to use as trades for our next trip to WDW. They really enjoyed the trading part. To see thier faces light up when they see a CM with a lanyard was worth the initial cost. But now, it is getting hard to justify the cost ($8 each) for pins to trade. We are not into collecting or trying to profit. We just want real Disney pins that the kids can trade. I have read about "mousepinsonline". I was going to order a 25-item grab bag. Again, I am just wanting real Disney pins for the girls to be able to trade. I would be willing to bet that I could not tell a fake from a real pin. And, I could not imagine them trying to trade with a CM only to discover they can't because the pin is fake. Any comments about mousepinsonline?

Thanks

Are you sure that you have the name right?
They are a brand new person to ebay with no transactions at all.
Remember..there are plenty of sellers of real pins...but..if you are paying less than 2 bucks a pin..in a lot of 20 to 25
the odds are..that they will not be real.

You're welcome! They usually get me to buy more than my original intent too

We used mousepinsonline while we were trading regularly, I would order from eBay and MPO so we had a variety. I received a few scrappers but not too many. MPO will have standard Disney pins and Propins in their grab bags, both are 100% tradable at the parks and you will have no problems trading with CM's.

okay..
I see that they are a separate website..and..not on ebay...
I can see why...
They do not show you a thing.
no pics..at all..
so..how can you judge?
no feedback...
horrible self made, neophyte website.
and..most telling of all...
and..the reason that I would run for the hills on this one.....
is..
drumroll..please...
the only pics that they do have up...
are ..generic..cheap..non disney lanyards...
at prices higher than the real thing.
So...
if they cannot even carry real lanyards....
how the heck can you trust their pins..blindly?

I noticed one of the preferred ebay sellers has a lot of 40 pins for sale (they have a photo) and it looks like a great deal. We have 5 children (4 that may trade) and I thought about buying something like that. Do you think that is safe? They said you get the exact ones in the photo.

I worry too that they would try and trade a cast member only to find they are fake.

Who is it?
just research their feedback..
and..as the above poster has said...
the disney store has 4 packs of pins now for 7 bucks.
in fact,I just bought a bunch of em.
http://www.disneystore.com/10th-anni...53762/1000202/
so..if they are for trading..
why play around?

I just got an email from MUBUNNY (one of the good sellers) and he just listed some and said he would be listing some for the next week or so.

The listing was from retiredreadingspecialist and was 100% positive. I think I saw one person that gave positive feedback but mentioned there was a scrap in the lot of 40.
