    Hey guys! I thought seeing as it’s Valentine’s Day today I would start a thread so we can share which pin (or pins!) in our collection we love the most, and if you want to share, the reason why it’s your favourite - whether it’s a big story or just a simple matter of it being pretty <3

    I’ll start off with my favourite, which is also both my newest pin and one of most Valentine’s themed! It’s my Language Of Love pin featuring my favourite couple, O’Malley and Duchess. I love this pin because not only is it gorgeous, but French is my favourite language, Paris is my favourite city and I’ve loved The Aristocats (especially Thomas and Duchess) since a young age so having a pin with them on makes me so happy

    Now it’s your turn!

    That Aristocats pin is gorgeous! The detail in their faces is so clean.

    I love so many of my Mulan pins, but this one is probably my favorite:

    I love the design and especially the colors. Most Mulan pins depict her in green, pink, or sometimes blue, so to see her in a mix of purple, yellow, and red is really unique. Plus this pin was a zap (from @docfish2u , I believe), so that makes it extra special.

    Is the text alluding to something in the movie? What's the meaning of it?

    I believe that that's an Adventures By Disney pin, so the text is referring to the excursion that you went on to get it.

    My favorite pin is this one:

    Pin 24199 DLR GWP Lion King Map Pin - Timon

    This was the very first Disney pin I ever owned. I got it on my first trip to Disneyland as an adult, with some friends from college. One of my friends got some trading pins with her vacation package, and found this pin on a cast member lanyard and got it for me since she knew how much I love Timon.

    This pin is so beautiful! And I only just noticed that the red parts are translucent, that is so neat. It sounds like this is the perfect pin for you by the way you describe it!

    Wow, that is unique coloring, I've never seen her in different colors like this, but you're right, that makes it extra special and probably really shakes up your pin board (if that's how you're displaying them).

    It was a tiny bit difficult to narrow this down to just one pin because I have several that are extremely beautiful, but it's gotta be this one:

    [​IMG]

    Pin 25825 Disney Auctions Photo Booth Shots - Lock, Shock & Barrel

    I just love this pin so much, I love that it captures a little moment and so perfectly expresses the characters's personalities and relationships with one another in just four frames. Plus I think the artwork is cute. ^_^
    Also, it took a lot of effort for me to track down and I was SO EXCITED when I found someone willing to trade me for it! This is also the pin that got me into pin trading/collecting - I vaguely knew that Disney Pin Trading was a thing, but hadn't really looked into it until I accidentally stumbled across a picture of this pin and was like "I MUST HAVE THIS." And here I am, more than 80 pins later, lol!

    Wow, favorite pin? That is an extremely hard question. Hmmmm.....Nope, can't do it. I could narrow it down to about a half dozen or so, but that's about it. However, I think I can identify my proudest pin. When I first started collecting many years ago, I was on vacation at WDW and just amazed by the pins that people had. I thought to myself "How in the world do they get these? They are awesome!" One person in particular had some really nice stuff. (At least to my eyes at the time.) There was one pin in particular that caught my eye and, especially, my wife's. I asked if it was for trade and basically got a "Pfffft. To you? Please. As if you would have anything to offer." Well, not those exact words, but definitely how it came across. And I thought "You're right. I'm a worm for even asking. I have nothing to offer and probably never will. I will never have any pins remotely that nice." Well, over the years I learned more about pins and how to acquire them and how to trade them and built a significant collection with even nicer ones than what I saw in that pin bag. But somewhere along the way, I got that pin.

    That is a really awesome pin, and quite the story to go with it! Jeez, it would have been nice if that person could have been a little more gentle in refusing to trade with you. :/

    My favorite pin is the teapot from the U.K. Pavilion Hidden Mickey pin collection. I always smile when I see it because of the story.

    [​IMG]

    My family loves WDW and usually visits 1-2 times per year for the past 8 years or so. Most of the kids, one sister, and I love pin trading. When my niece was around 4 she traded for the teapot pin for me at the Frontier Trading Post. (I then had to trade for the remainder of the set.)

    The memory is very dear to me to this day. When she sees this pin on my board, she still says that's the pin she got me. If I ever sold my pin collection, I'd keep this pin (set) for the memories. I have lots of pins that I love, but this is my favorite.

    Those are some really beautiful pins! I especially like the Nightmare Before Christmas pin. It really is difficult to choose, I have 2 that are from the Walt Disney Family Museum that I never get tired of looking at.

    The Skeleton Halloween pin from the WDFM is my favorite. The first time I saw it on pinpics it became my first grail. It’s just beautiful to me and fits in with my Halloween collection in general. I had no luck trading for it or finding it for sale. Then around 2 or so years ago around Christmas time dpf member Raikipins contacted me and said they would get it for me! I was thrilled, still am really.

    Ooh, neat! I never really think about the Silly Symphonies and other much older Disney stuff being on pins, but this is a very cool looking pin! Congrats on eventually landing your first grail!

    I agree with @arielsdinglehopper, that's a really beautiful pin! I haven't seen many with that kind of very museum-looking picture framing, and the artwork is so close to the film. Really nice!

    My favorite pin has to go with my favorite ride, Haunted Mansion. The attic scene was always so wonderfully creepy, and when they changed it to the “black widow” theme, it was even more macabre. It’s ironic because I don’t watch any horror movies and do not like to be scared at all. This jumbo pin captured the scene perfectly. At the bottom of the pin, you pull the slider portion down, and the heads of her grooms disappear. This effect is so brilliant; I commend whoever thought of it.
