    Hi, I am taking my 2 and 5 year old boys next weekend. Is pin trading something the 5 year old will enjoy, or is he too young?

    Hi Michael!

    I think 5 years old is a great age for pin trading!  My son does it and he's 3.  He loves asking the Cast Members to see their pins and then trade for the ones he likes.  He doesn't trade for the special edition ones, he just trades for the ones that have his favorite character.  When he doesn't have anymore that he wants to trade, we buy him a few more of the most inexpensive pins we can find.  It's a fun activity for your children to participate in.  Purchase a starter lanyard to begin.  These will come with multiple pins to start trading with.  Take a look at each Cast Member's available pins and have fun!

    Have a magical day!
