Only with a full paying adult, so they're still making money off you.

That depends on the attraction - some are Free i.e. Edinburgh Zoo - some are must have a fee paying adult i.e. Alton Towers.

Although I would not be sending my 6yr old to any by themself!

Thanks

On the website in the link it says children apply by sending something in or showing what they have done, I think back in the day most children got one for a letter etc.
If anyone does get one please post what you sent in etc

I tried to get a badge when I was a child, never got one

I got one when I was a kid for being a runner up in a photo comp. Lost it though

My girlfriend had one stolen a couple of years ago. She had it pinned to the outside of her handbag and somebody whipped it. Gits!

Time to apply for 5 year old billy.....Christmas present!

My two have purple ones. They had to write a review of a show. Cant say how much I wanted one all those years ago!

Don't be buying one off E-bay! you get issued a serialised ID card with the Badge, this must be shown.

Hot from me

I used to have one - it got us into Chessington World of Adventures free when I was a kid....couldn't have afforded it any other way, thanks Blue Peter for great memories!

This is great!

"Because I paid my TV license so you could make them instead of new programs. Instead of new programs I'm still faced with Dad's **** Army on prime time."
