Disney Park Pack: Pin Trading Edition is a monthly mystery pack from the Disney Store. It’s not a subscription – you have to purchase it every month – and it’s available on the first Thursday of every month.
These are the Park Pack pins for August 2015. Disney Pins are the perfect souvenir – small, not too expensive, and fun to collect. There’s no information card for this box, and just like every other month, I wish they’d include a curator’s note – maybe with names for these pins!
Both non-LE pins have the pricing information on the back!
All pins include the Mickey pin-backs!
Remy Pin (from Ratatouille): So cute! I love the style and design of this pin. This is one of my favorite Disney movies and it reminds me, my kids haven’t really seen it! Time for a movie night!
Stitch Ice Cream Pin (Lilo & Stitch): This pin was really perfect for August! Stitch is funny and adorable and I love him just gobbling up that ice cream! The 4 limited edition pins each featured a different color background. This month there were 750 of each of the 4 variations of pin, which makes the pin technically less valuable.
Hercules I’m Kind of a Big Deal Pin: This one is just funny! I’m betting my husband grabs this one!
With the increase of the LE pin to 750 (3,000 boxes total), I expected to see two pins of a higher value as the others. The extra inventory has really helped and this box was available for at least a couple days this month – but still a limit of 1 per person. The scalpers have seemed to figure out the boxes aren’t selling for a premium, so if you’re interested, grab it. I wish there were spoilers to help decide whether you want it or not! With the Disney Tsum Tsum subscription coming soon (read all about it here), I am hoping/expecting the Park Pack to become an actual subscription. And I’m still hoping for even more official Disney subscription boxes!
