    Disney offers collectible pins and accessories at just about every retail location. You can find pins featuring your favorite character, movie, or ride; and, pins can be traded with Disney World cast members or guests. A pin collection is something you can add to each year, and since trading is not only allowed, but encouraged, the collection can grow with your child. Start out with Playhouse Disney pins, then trade up to princesses, pirates, or Star Wars — the possibilities are endless!
