In the past, I've looked at disneycrazy. My thought was no. My sister even purchased pins from them. She is not as anti-scrapper, as I am.

Yes, Disney Store mini pins can be traded! These are in fact, one of my favorite things to trade for! I love the mini pins!!! I have quite a few that I've traded for in the parks.

Thanks. I was hoping. I did not want to trade fake pins from ebay. I wanted real ones. We were reading Disney cracking down on fake pins and taking them away. Not sure if this is true or not but I dont want issues with DD and her trading. I will have to look at Disney store for more.

Thanks again

I ordered 40 pins from gomf03 on ebay and after looking on pinpics I think every single one of them is a fake. We leave for Disney in 2 days...not sure what to do now if I should let DD trade them or not. So frustrated...learned my lesson at least!

Good luck with your pin trading. Hope DD finds what she is looking for.

BTW we also looked at pinpic. It looks like we traded real pins we bought at the parks some way to expensive (I should have been watching her closer) for a lot of fakes

I would ask you not to trade them but ultimately it's your decision. I would contact the seller and ask them to take them back due to your suspicions. You can purchase starter packs in the parks for trading, they will be more money but you'll be trading good pins. You can also try ordering online and having them sent to your hotel. Good luck!

I think it's almost a sure thing that if you are paying $1 per pin on ebay and you see the same person selling hundreds of pins a day, the pins are going to be fake. You shoudln't buy from those sellers if you are concerned about trading fake pins.

Smile Scrappers are AWESOME!!!!!!!!!

[SIZE="5"] So called 'scrappers' are actually the koolest new thing for those 'in the know'. many pin collectors have come to appreciate them more than the boring ''so called' 'official' pins. why?? because they have individuality, character, style and class!... i found this 'anti-scrapper' guy throwing 'scrappers' in the trash at disney land./ i asked him what he was doing and he proceded to preach to me about 'official disney trading pins'(oooo scary) apparently he has designated himself sheriff of 'anti scrapper county'...i asked them if i could have them and he said "oh no! these can't go back into the trade cycle! it goes against everything mickey stands for!".. um, ok crazy person(many 'anti scrappers' seem to be um..unique) .. i was like ok, tell you what i'll give you 10.00 not to throw this (what he referred to as ) 50 cent pin in the trash because i know someone in beverly hills who is willing to give me $50.00 dollars for it as it has induviduality as a 'scrapper'..he said 'i seriously doubt that' in his official disney trading pin police voice...but he took my 10.00...he was right though...i didn't get $50.00 for the known 'scrapper'...i got $160.00/ so, u official disney trading pin orthodox police ppl keep going ahead and throwing 'scrappers' in the trash that are worth 100 dollars among 'true collectors'..thanks!!!!!!!

Well I guess that makes me feel better for all the scrappers my daughter now owns vs "official" pins. She only collects one character so we are bound to get more as we really cant tell the difference. My theory is they are like beanie babies. At some point they may not be worth anything so as long as she has fun. I did read about people like this elsewhere which is why I have Disney store pins just so she does not get denied. Funny thing you never know what things are worth. We have Disney stuff from her first trip selling on ebay for $1k. What? For a bear. She wont part with it no matter the price.

Value is always subjective on collectibles. What 1 person might pay $1 for another might pay $1000. It always depends on the person and the reason they want it. I collect Disney pins because I like them, I have literally hundreds in my house, I have them in every room of my house except the master bathroom! lol All 3 bedrooms, the living room, dining room, kitchen, guest bath, they all have pins.
