Greetings!

Thank you for your patience as we continue to work out some of the kinks on our web site. One of the biggest enhancments we added to our web site is this technology called AJAX. It's this mouse-over technology whose overall goal is to reduce the number of clicks a buyer needs to perform in order to put an order together. Click and wait is the old technology. Because of the number of items on our web site, a typical order usually took over 500 clicks. We are still fine tuning it, but hopefully in the near future, shopping at Toy Wonders will save you time -after all time is money.

A few shipments arrived this week. If you log into your account at www.toywonders.com, before clicking on any of the links below, you will see wholesale pricing -as well as a picture.

The Art of Toy and Diecast Model Car Marketing
Let’s Make a Deal
By Lu Su

One of my favorite riddles comes from the television game show “Let’s Make a Deal” with Monte Hall.  I know for the younger generations readying this, I’m going to get a lot of blank stares. “Monte Hall? Let’s make a deal? Never heard of it; you must be a dinosaur!” What Monte, the game show host, would make a grand announcement that today we are giving away a new car (or some fabulous prize).  Monte would then pick a contestant from the audience and offer the contestant a choice of three curtains. “Do you want curtain #1, #2, or #3?” he would ask.  Now the car is behind one of the curtains, there is nothing behind another curtain, and usually the last curtain has a dude prize behind (like a smelly mule).

The contestant, usually dressed up in some crazy garb (the crazier the outfit, the greater the chance Monte would select him/her to play), would randomly pick one curtain. Now before opening the curtain that the contestant had just picked, the very next thing Monte does is to open one of the two remaining curtains –and reveal that there is no car behind it.. Now it is important for you to know that since Monte knows where the car is, he can always open the empty curtain or the one with a dude prize behind it.  And the last thing Monte does is to offer the contestant, “Would you like to switch curtains?  I’ll make a deal with you and trade the remaining curtain with the one you originally picked.”   Please keep in mind that Monte always offers the contestant if he wants to switch. 
So the question is “Should you switch?”

Possible answers:
  1. Yes, you should switch because the odds of winning the car are greater if you do.
  2. No, you should not switch because the odds are greater if you stay with your original pick.
  3. Doesn’t matter if you switch or not, because the odds are 50/50.
  4. Doesn’t matter if you switch or not, because all curtains lead to a brand new car.
If you respond to this email with your guess, I’ll respond back if you are correct or not.  Need you ponder this question, because it sets up the next essay called “Pretty Small Odds”.
