17/1: Valentines and Welcome to London Pins

The first pins of 2011 have been announced and they should be with us soon.

The first is a pair of pins celebrating Valentine's Day and show Wenlock and Mandeville in front of a large heart in the Union Flag design in 2012 colours.

Valentines 2001 Pins
Each pin is marked 'Happy Valentines Day 2011' and is only available in this limited edition set. The issue size is 2,012 pieces and the RRP is £16.00. This set fits very well with the limited edition mascot set issued alongside the mascot launch and I imagine these will sell fast. Pin numbers are 531 and 532.

No word yet on which retailers will be stocking them, but expect to see them available in the last week of January to give you enough time to buy them before Valentine's Day.

The other new pins announced today are a pair of 'Welcome to London' pins. These are 'dangle' pins which combine the Games logo and Paralympic Games logo with the words ' Welcome to London'.

'Welcome to London' pins
These pins are available separately at RRP of £6.50 and are limited to 10,000 and 5,000 pieces respectively. Pin numbers are 285 and 286. I believe these should be with retailers very soon. Again, no word on who is stocking these initially.

If any retailers are reading and would like to let me know their plans for stocking these pins, please drop me an email and I'll let the readers know.

Update 19/1: Glamorous Living have announced they have limited stocks of the Valentine's pin sets. Click here for their site.

I realize I may be in the minority but I think the "Welcome to London" pins are very boring and they really missed the boat on these.
