    Hello all! You can call me Zoom.

    I don't really collect Disney pins exclusively, nor am I an avid collector. I'm more of a dabbler if anything. However my recent dabbling had me crossing paths with Disney pins on Ebay. This reminded me of a trip I took to Disney World (I believe in 2010) and my one and only souvenir: a stitch pin. Unfortunately it was lost shortly after that trip when the hat that I put it on got misplaced.

    I decided to seek out a replacement for my long lost pin, but there's a rub. I can't find hide or hair of it anywhere. Not a photo, not a mention of it's existence. I'm starting to think I imagined the specifics of the pin entirely! I'm not really looking to pester someone into selling me a rare pin! I'm just looking for proof that it exists at all.

    Unfortunately it's been so long all I have is a rough description: Basically a "baby" or "chibi" Stitch pin, depicting Stitch as very small and cute, with sort of "puppylike" proportions.

    If anyone has seen this pin I would really appreciate confirmation of it being a thing!

    Thank you!

    Did you look on Pinpics and search under Stitch 2010 WDW?

    This would be a great place to start. Get a pinpics number to share with us and this forum will dig in to assist your search.

    And welcome!

    I didn't even know Pinpic was a thing! That's definitely going to help my search! Unfortunately I still can't find the pin anywhere. I'm really beginning to think I imagined it. The closest I found to the one I remember is #12553. I think it's more likely I misremembered this pin than that there just happens to be one that no one has taken a picture of ever!

    It sure would have been a cute pin if it were real, though. Thank you everyone for taking the time to show me pictures and give pointers on where to look! I'm really grateful.

    The only problem is that because of looking through Pinpic I've now bought a couple Stitch pins that I didn't intend to buy. XD

    Namely #12553 and #12499. I really didn't need a new collection to add to, whoops.

    Hehehe ... we are here to help and enable you, one pin at a time; after all, that's how a collection is built. Just keep looking and be patient, I'm sure you'll find your pin - and many more - eventually (most likely, when you least expect it).

    In the meantime, welcome. :)

    I understand that. More specifically, are you trying to post directly or via a third party sharing site?

    I believe that a few third party hosting sites require you to pay if you want to post your images to different sites. ATM, I can't recall which hosting sites require this payment, but if I had to guess, you might have registered with one that does. Maybe try re-registering with a different third party hosting site (I seem to recall imugr being recommended) and see if that works better for you?

    @Zoom
    I use tapatalk with great success to post my images.

    I feel like this is a cliff hanger... which pin was it you were looking for. I just have to know.
