I'm curious what the worst selling single color stashes are.  That is, the
number of Treehouse sets they can build out of existing stock is limited by
the lowest stock color.  For example, if there are only 50 red stashes,
those fifty can contribute to 250 Treehouse sets.  If there are 60 yellow
stashes, they will be left with a remainder of ten yellow stashes that can't
be cannibalized.  What will become of those orphaned ten?

I wonder which colors currently have the largest single color stash stock,
and will therefore have the most "leftovers."

It seems that the Looneys could cannibalize their "sitting on the shelf"
single color stashes and make them into Treehouse sets, but surely they are
not going to do this in a single afternoon. I'm not sure how production
works, but I would think that they could assemble x number of Treehouse
sets, yet still have big bins of single color pieces sitting around. If
someone wants to buy an orange stash, they could just throw the orange
pieces into a tube and ship them out.


Treehouse stashes and single color stashes don't seem to be mutually
exclusive if you have a large stock of pyramids on hand. Why not leave the
single stashes for sale on the website for the last few die-hard pieceniks
to get them, but convert the bulk of your stock into Treehouse?
