We’re big fans of having memorable experiences with friends and family. Pins are a fun way to remember those fleeting experiences. There’s something special about these little, jewel-like metal and enamel souvenirs.
Pins have been a staple reminder of Disney park visits. Stressed out and need a quick dose of nostalgic Disney escapism? With pins, just take a look at your lapel. Or your jean jacket. Or your bookbag.
If you want Disney memorabilia that reminds you of great experiences you’ve had, pins may be your ticket.
A Flair For Pin Culture
“Pins create a tie to a certain moment,” Jordan states.
Alyssa Coscarelli at Refinery 29 seems to agree:
“When you buy a pin for yourself or give one to a friend, you are turning a thought, memory or event into something tangible.”
Alyssa makes the case that a big part of pin culture is that enamel pins are wearable art. “There are no gender restrictions, no size restrictions, and hardly any monetary restriction to styling with them, considering most come in at under 15 bucks. So, anyone can curate a collection.” she writes.
Disney Pin Flair
Pins as keepsakes for remembering your Disney park trip have a long history at Disney. EPins have taken on a life of their own at Dinsey. Pin trading — even official Disney pin etiquette — has blossomed. Disney even offers pin style tips.
