Staff Picks: The Best Pins Starring Mickey and Friends

With almost 100 years’ worth of classic characters in their catalogue, Disney’s most famous and enduring are still their earliest cartoon stars. Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, Goofy, and more continue to appear everywhere, including in the company’s pins. In this blog post, we pay tribute to the classics by sharing our favorite pins starring Mickey and friends.

Retro Toys Mickey Mouse Drummer

Mickey Mouse pins are so common that we could do a whole blog post about them. Someday we might! For now, we’ll highlight a unique take on the mascot from way back when. The Retro Toys Mickey Mouse Drummer pin is a limited-edition collectible based on a real plaything from the icon’s early history. Only 1500 were produced, so get one while you can before another collector snaps it up.

Halloween Minnie and Figaro

The cutest couple involving Minnie Mouse may not have Mickey at all. Walt Disney so loved Figaro, Gepetto’s kitten in Pinocchio, that he put the character in other shorts. Eventually, he became Minnie’s pet, meaning that a giant mouse owned a small cat. There’s no interspecies hostility between the two. You can see that in the Halloween Minnie and Figaro pin, which shows the former in cute costume as the latter.

D23 A Goofy Movie 25th Anniversary

A Goofy Movie officially became a quarter-century old in 2020. It didn’t just see a resurgence in popularity over the course of years, but also plenty of merchandise celebrating the occasion. The D23 A Goofy Movie 25th Anniversary limited-edition pin set features goodies based on three classic scenes. Fans of Lester’s Possum Park, Lake Destiny’s Bigfoot, and Powerline’s Los Angeles concert can’t miss these collectibles, once exclusive to D23, now available through us.

Happy Holidays 2018 Donald and Nephews

There’s nothing like spending Christmas with family, and the Happy Holidays 2018 Donald and Nephews pin gives that idea a cute Disney touch. It shows Huey, Dewey, and Louie up to no good as usual … or are they? Donald doesn’t seem flattered by his snowman likeness, but one could easily see it as an earnest tribute or just light-hearted fun. With these three kids, who swerve between mischief and sweetness, you never know.

2016 Mardi Gras Chip and Dale

Chip and Dale are a fun pair, which may be why Disney almost exclusively puts them in pins themed to holidays and celebrations. The 2016 Mardi Gras Chip and Dale pin shows the chipper chipmunks living it up like you’re supposed to on Fat Tuesday. One sports a bulbous crown, the other wears a jester’s motley, and both are bedazzled in beads. 2016 is in the past now, but feel free to break out this pin when the next Mardi Gras rolls around.
