    My name is Cory, and I'm introducing myself while I have the nerve to.
    I'm 23, and I found this forum while scouring the web for credible sites to identify some pins I've been searching for ( did you know how hard that is to do if you don't know where to look?)
    Up until about five years ago I lived about 30 minutes outside of Anaheim Ca, so when my mother could save up the funds to, she would buy my small family year passes. You could say I grew up in the Disney Family ; )
    A little less than ten years ago I got into pin collecting. At that time a new series came out that I now know is called the Cuties line. I saved up with my allowance, got a couple as a gift, and actually had the whole series! I was wicked proud. Of course if I'm looking for them now I must have lost them at some point right? They were stolen when I was asked to take them off for a ride and put them in a back pocket of the seat in front of me on the Thunder Mountain Railroad. I forgot them when I got off, and by the time I got back they were stolen.
    I was crushed, and since my family didn't have money to renew our passes the next year, I never did have a chance to recollect them.
    I fell out of pin collecting hard after that. It crushed me pretty bad because although the money was mine, I knew we were tight on cash and it felt like I just wasted my mother's money.
    I'm back now and have been reading this site pretty regularly after I found it. I managed to find pinpics through this site, and through that was able to identify the pins I lost so long ago. I'm planning on setting up a small wishlist, but my main goal is to simply collect the pins I lost as a child.

    More about myself:
    - I am very autistic. I collect and love things very hard. It is why I got into pin collecting so hard as a child, and why I was so crushed when I lost them all. Though I mainly focused on the Cuties line, I did lose a lot of other pins that day and it felt my whole heart was gone.
    - My new thing is Tsum Tsums! I know a lot about Tsum Tsums, but as I am an adult that has to make my own money now, I can not collect them as hard as I would like to. If I do collect any more pins outside the Cuties line, it will most likely be the Tsum Tsum lines though.
    -I like talking to people, but I have huge social anxiety. If I drop off the face of an active convo, it's not because I hate anyone, but most likely I freaked myself out about something you might not have even noticed. I apologize.
    -I would love some new friends to chat with about Disney Merch though! My Long Suffering Boyfriend I think is a little sick of it all x ) So please, feel free to introduce yourself or chat with me if you see me about on the boards!

    Hi and Welcome!

    My oldest son is on the spectrum. His obsessional interest is trains (to call him a train fan is such a grave understatement). He loves Disney almost as much as I do and he has a very nice Disney train/railroad pin collection.

    :D Did you see the disney train set they had up on the website for black friday? I would have gotten it if I had the money for more than like, living and a single tsum plush every so often lol. I get it though, tsum tsums have been my special interest for the last year and a half ish? and kind of both prior and alongside tsums Ive devoted the last seven years to an online comic and all the lore around it. ( I actually have some pins that they released for that comic 6u6 ) I wish I had a special interest that was relevent to real life though, anything useful to life is so boring and hard to focus on.

    Hello and t hank you both!

    Welcome Cory! Thanks for sharing your story!!

    The cuties pins were my first set that I collected and completed as well! I collected the animal one. Then the princesses, then the "princes" and also the cruise line cuties! I loved them!!

    I have since decided to let them go to move on to other sets that I am more interested in now. Which cutie set are you looking for? I may have some stragglers hanging around!
