    Is my pin defective?

    So I bought a pin set from the Disney Store Website:

    Pin 89935: DisneyStore.com - Disney Parks Adventure - Characters with Park Food Pin Set


    and on the Chip n' Dale Pin,

    Pin 89943: DisneyStore.com - Disney Parks Adventure - Characters with Park Food Pin Set - Chip and Dale Only



    Chip's eye has no white in his eye. Is this a defective pin, or a scrapper? Has anyone had some sort of problem or bad experience purchasing pins from the Disney Store website? I will attach a pic of my pin here:



    Hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas and a Happy Holidays!

    But assuming the whole run is not like that, it's probably just a manufacturing error - it happens.
    Oh okay. Thanks!

    I would contact customer service and let them know! Not sure how much you paid for them, but I would bring it to someone's attention!

    If you plan to keep it for yourself and it doesn't bother you then I say keep it. If you think you will want to trade down the road, I'm sure someone will call it out as a scrapper and you may want to return for a new set.

    On a DS purchase, I purchased this lanyard set from them:
    http://www.disneystore.com/disney-pa...01418/1000286/

    It was a couple of weeks later when I realized that my lanyard has 2 of the same minnie mouse pins on it and no NBC pin. I just opted to keep it. It doesn't bother me. Does make me wonder about their quality control though.

    Yeah, I might just keep it. Wow, they gave you two of the same pins? Well, that minnie mouse pin looks pretty nice still. I think there needs to be a change in quality operations in the DisneyStore website.
