    Pin trading; would you recommend this for a 2yr old and a 5yr old?

    Hi, Heather!    Pin Trading is very popular around WDW, but I really wouldn't recommend it for young children.  For one thing, those pins are sharp!  I would not want to see your kids get hurt.   Another thing is the pins can get heavy on the lanyards, and I can almost guarantee that you will end up carrying around the pins and lanyards!  (Not to mention small backings/pieces that may not be suitable for this age.)

    I suggest waiting until they are a bit older and the hazard goes away and they can appreciate it more!  If you are looking for a collectible, take a look at the Disney Racers.  They are small cars that come decorated as so many fun Disney characters.  At about $5 each, this might be a better idea for this age (both my son and daughter love these!)  

    I hope you are not disappointed in my answer, but look at Pin Trading as something to look forward to in a few years!
