I was just thinking, where do the kids get money to go to the Candy Bar all of the time? They must all get great allowances or something?

Yeah, you make a valid point there, Vanessa. They must have allowances of some kind, otherwise they couldn't afford eat there so much. ^^; Cindy, especially, since she seems to be so privileged by her parents... :unsure:

Also, Sheen's dad seems to spoil him a lot buying him all those toys, video games, etc. Maybe they give them allowance for doing chores and whatnot.

Hmm. This is another interesting topic to discuss, Vanessa. I think it is either from allowance money or their parents give it to them. Like you said, Cindy's parents have money and Sheen's dad spoils him. 

 

Did you also ever wonder where Jimmy gets all of the materials in his lab from? Do his parents buy him all of those beakers, test tubes, chemicals, etc? I mean, he has to get them from somewhere.

 

Great topic, Vanessa!

You know, we have seen him being assigned chores before, so I'm sure that's how he's earned some money to use for his lab stuff. ;) Though I still wonder, after he uses it for that stuff, how he still has some to use for the Candy Bar... :blink2: Any ideas?? :huh:

Maybe he just asks for things for his birthdays and Xmas. In the ep Time is Money his parents couldn't afford to buy him that encyclopedia set so maybe he is selling stuff to chemical companies on the side? haha

 

Maybe he is doing some unethical things to get money...hmmmm :blink2:

I got $5 a week in allowance in elementary school. I could have probably easily afforded a weekly or biweekly ice cream at something like the Candy Bar. I wouldn't have been able to get hot lunch on pizza day if I did that, but it wouldn't have been difficult. These kids are all solidly middle class like I was. It's not a stretch to imagine they can do the same. Not being able to afford/willing to spend several hundred dollars on an unnecessarily fancy encyclopedia set that will be outdated in 10 years isn't really the same thing lol

Yeah, you make a valid point there, Mary. It was likely something like that along those lines for most of the gang, though I can imagine Cindy has a more privileged life than the rest of them. Though I'm sure Libby is to some extent, too, with all the gadgets like a cell phone and boom box that she owns, plus lots of outfits, too, I'm sure... :P

I read somewhere that Libby is upper class but not sure how that was confirmed since we don't really get to see her home life. But when all the parents are trying to get the kids back in Win Lose and Kaboom, Libby's mom is upset that Libby doesn't have anything to wear makes it seem like she may be a bit spoiled. That is a good point about the allowance thing though, Mary. It just seems like the kids go there every single day which might add up.

It's also a more visually and narratively interesting to have them at the Candy Bar than at one of their houses, so that's a thing. Plus once you design a setting, it's cheaper to repeatedly set scenes there and reuse the background than to always have new scenery. I doubt they'd be going there every day if they were IRL kids.

Yeah, that's probably why they made it that way. Maybe if they'd had more money at the time, we might've gotten more variety, plus maybe another season... Beggars can't be choosers, though, I guess... ^^;
