Disneyland® Resort

Bedknobs and Broomsticks
Disney's Bedknobs and Broomsticks
This five pin collection features characters from Disney's Bedknobs and Broomsticks featured on pins that look like award metals. Originally, these pins were planned to be done in gold but all Hidden Mickey pins have a silver base metal color (which is one of the identifying marks along with the Hidden Mickey icon in the art and the approximate size of 1.25"). From left to right, the characters pictured in the pins are as follows:

  • King Leonidas
  • Fisherman Bear
  • Secretary Bird
  • Mr. Codfish
  • Vultures

    The Black Cauldron
    Disney's The Black Cauldron
    This five pin collection features characters from Disney's The Black Cauldron which celebrates its 25th Anniversary in 2010. From left to right, the characters pictured in the pins are as follows:

  • Taran
  • Princess Elionwy
  • Dallben
  • Hen Wen
  • Horned King

    Steven told us that he picked Dallben over Fflewddur Fflam as he was voiced by Freddie Jones, an actor who stared in several science fiction films from the early 1980s which Steven enjoys. What we want to know is where's Gurgi? [grin]

    Neon Mickey Mouse
    This five pin collection was inspired by artwork for neon colored boxers. The item was hanging in a display room at Disney Theme Park Merchandise and Steven thought the various neon colors of Mickey Mouse would make a nice collection of pins. This is collection was also inspired by the colorful faces series from the 2009 collection of Hidden Mickey pins - kind of like part two to that series.

    Pin Trading Phrases
    The artwork for this five pin collection was created by Daniel Kaplan, trading coordinator for Disney Pins. They feature several phrases from the Disney Pin Trading world. We think our favorite is "This Is Not A Pin!" Wait ... it is, isn't?
