Disney Park Pack March 2016 review

These are the Park Pack pins for March 2016.

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!

Disney Park Pack March 2016 (1)

The backs of the pin cards show the prices for the open editions, but not the exclusive limited edition pin, because it won’t be sold anywhere else. All pins include the Mickey pin-backs!

With a silver and green pin in addition to the LE pin, this box is a bit lower value!

Minnie Mouse Glitter Heart Pin: She’s batting her lashes! The background is full of iridescent glitter and super pretty. My daughter will snap this one right up!

Darkwing Duck Limited Edition Pin: Here’s a pin I didn’t expect to see! This LE pin is one of the “fading in” background style pins (my least favorite, because when you get the empty background as I usually do, it’s just not that interesting).

This is a limited edition of 500. This was a surprise, because they had gone to an edition of 750. Here are the possibilities:

1 – this is a mistake and it’s really an edition of 750.

2 – It’s an edition of 500 and there are now 6 different varieties of the same pin.

3 – It’s an edition of 500 and there is more than one pin (perhaps 3 versions of 2 different pins).

4 – it’s an edition of 500 and there are now only 2000 total pins because they reduced the subscription numbers.

Would love your info on this in the comments.

Marshmallow! – This was a really fun pick – it’s Elsa’s bodyguard from FROZEN. Post movie he’s much friendlier and I like that he has a character progression. This will go perfectly with our Frozen gear!

I do have to admit that this wasn’t my favorite box from this subscription – I was getting used to having a pin match something I’d already received, but maybe we’ll receive something matching next month. I also noticed that we’d received a couple Dumbo pins – then Dumbo showed up in my Tsum Tsum subscription. That was really fun and I hope they do that again!

    OK so I agree not the most exciting box. I do like Darkwing and Marshmallow but they are a little lackluster. Minnie being all flirty and in a heart almost seems like it would have been better in a Valentine’s box and this month we should have had flowers or april showers or something like that.
