Vote of the week: Which is your favorite theme park souvenir?
We've been talking about theme park souvenirs
on the site this week. While put that question up for a vote
a couple years ago, this time I threw it out to Theme Park Insider's Facebook fans
and Twitter followers
They responded with more than a dozen favorites, which I've included as the options in this week's vote.
Thanks for reading Theme Park Insider (and for following us on Facebook and Twitter!). Have a great weekend!
Tough one, but I will go with pins.
Park maps because they're free.
Backscratchers, Robert! I collect theme park backscratchers. Any other backscratcher fans out there?
It's postcards for me, although those are becoming extinct. I've been collecting them for years, and now I place them in frames (usually with internal mattes that allow 3 to 6 in one frame) and hang them on my office wall. I can just turn away from the computer and take a little theme park vacation whenever I need it.
You forgot attraction hats! I buy em for every floorless coaster i ride. :D
Wow. That whole snow globe thing is just dead, isn't it?
Yes, you forgot Park Baseball Caps. So I put shirts. My son collects hats, my daughter collects shirts.
Probably one of my favorites not on the list is COFFEE MUGS - with graphics representing either the park as a whole or just an individual attraction. I love them... as my over stuffed cabinet can attest! The best part is that they are a souvenir that repeatedly shows up in your day-to-day life - reminding you of past good times and adventures. Many of the souvenirs on the list (many of which I have) disappear into drawers or boxes and are rarely seen again.
One reason the snow globe thing is dead, is that you can't bring them on an airplane anymore. You have to pay extra for shipping them to your home. I personally love them, just not enough to pay extra, unless I just see one that is a must have. I had to go with what I usually end up with, attraction T-shirts. Love wearing them around and thinking of the awesome rides.
OO OO! Snow globes aren't dead for me! LOL
i like to collect shot glasses, i have one from every park and one from all 6 horror nights ive been to.
I'll never give up my Mickey ears. I'm actually scared to wear them for fear of losing them. They are the old thicker felt style with the authentic HAND sewn name on the back (not that computerized stuff).
What about baseballs?
I went for shot glasses. I don't collect anything in particular, but my son has a shot glass collection. If you have ever shopped for them at DL they do not call them shot glasses, they are usually called toothpick holders.
T-Shirts, especially coaster T-Shirts. I wear them like a badge of honor.
My favorite souvenir isn't listed above. It's a necklace from Islands of Adventure. It was from the stand where they press a coin for you, using your choice of design, using an old mechanical coin press.
I love the penny press
