I knew Squeeze Play would be lost when Corbin didn't remove the 9. $19,xxx was definitely too expensive for the trip.

That had to be the easiest Vend-o-Price setup ever.

If only Charlie had switched the cameras and arcade game prices.

Not a bad show at all today!

Vend-o-Price was definitely quite easy, though I hadn't realized the string cheese was quite that much (I thought they would be $5 something.)

I was afraid there was going to be a double overbid - I thought $32,000 was too much for the second showcase and, of course, $51,000 was way too much for the first one. I personally would have bid $1 after the large bid, just to be safe. I'm not great at keeping up with the prizes and their prices as much as others, so that's just me.
There is a fifth dimension beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of man's fears and the summit of his knowledge. This is the dimension of imagination. It is an area which we call the Twilight Zone.

The very epitome of a "forced win" if there ever was one!

I know some people may disagree, but I had no problem with this being a car-free show until the Showcases. The prizes were all geared towards the kids playing them -- things they would like and actually be able to use. Once the Showcases came around, the parents were able to help and that's when cars came into play.

I am guessing that the reason they do this is, there aren't that many states where kids that young are allowed to own cars. With the parents involved in the showcases, they can give any car won to the parent.

I wonder if they're even allowed to give any of the prizes to the kids, as opposed to having their parents sign something that says that they receive all of the prizes. It matters for tax purposes.

  • One of the great multitaskers on G-R.net!
The Plinko segment was a nice way to kick off the show, with a center slot hit on one of the chips.

I think $35.96 is the highest total ever recorded in Vend-O-Price; man, that was a huge difference between the cookies and string cheese.

IIRC, the ball was under Shell #1, and the recap failed to show it.

Charlie didn't play Race Game too well, but at least she did end up with the two most expensive prizes of the bunch.

I'm not quite sure how they were able to pull this off, since the show has been very picky in the past about making sure that all decision makers are over 18. This is the first time I remember where a parent wasn't even on stage with a child. It also exposes how out-of-touch some kids are with the value of money since they don't have that support right with them, and I'm sure I was the same way at that age.

But there have been game shows where the primary players were kids, and even shows like Jeopardy! have their special weeks. I would be curious to see the paperwork for how all of it is handled and why Price has been hesitant to travel down that path until now.

They didn't have adults during last year's middle school episode of kids week. I defer to people with far more expertise on the subject as to whether or not that was the first time on TPIR.

I think they don't do it with the normal episodes because they would have to make sure all of the pricing games were "allowed to be played" with minors - either that, or don't call down any minors until the "adults only" games are played.

I am under the impression that, if a choice concerning stopping and taking money or risking it is involved (e.g. Let 'em Roll; Punch-A-Bunch), then it has to be an adult (mainly from episodes of The $128,000 Question and Joker! Joker!! Joker!!! from the 1970s, where adults had to make the decisions concerning whether to stop or continue when money was involved). However, they played Punch-A-Bunch on the high school episode, so unless all of those contestants were 18 or older, that impression is not entirely accurate.

You know, I just noticed something watching through these episodes again—I think Kailee’s little sister was the one that played Eazy in the Preschool episode (Kailani, I believe). You can Kailee and her father applaud as the little sis and mom make their way up on stage. Must have been a pretty eccentric family for both of them to get picked like that!

And as a commentary on this episode itself—it’s quite a treat to see these kids get a chance to play by themselves. You can tell they’re all having fun.

Had to check this out for myself, and you're right, definitely the same kids. Makes you wonder if the producers missed something? It's just extremely odd to have two siblings called to Come On Down, especially in a specials week like this.

The odds of being picked as a contestant are significantly higher during these special themed episodes where only some of the people in the audience are eligible to be called up on stage.  That may have something to do with it.

Also, the two episodes were taped one and a half months apart, which is plenty of time to forget which families were selected.
