Blame in on Microsoft!!  Not only did they open Microsoft Store #6 in Mall of America on Saturday  — but a quick trip around the mall resulted in a discovery in Nickelodeon Universe:  they have a pop up Kinect Store there!   Although to be fair, it looks more like another Nick Universe attraction, and small it ain’t.  

What Shareology knows about gaming fits in the proverbial teacup…but what might have started out as a game is migrating to a do-it-in-your living room, incredibly fun way to exercise for a mere $300 or so….(Kinect is part of the XBox 360…)

Well that’s it from Nickelodeon Universe….if you wanna continue to boogie, y’all gotta get to 162 South Avenue, Mall of America and pick up one of these:

Shareology is out the door:  P P P P P P Poker Face!!!!!

Spring Break at Mall of America: iPads, butterflies and roller coasters! April 11, 2010

Shareology dropped in for a coffee meeting at Mall of America last week, and found herself in the midst of Spring Break celebrations!  Turns out there were news in the Apple Store (iPads!) in Nickelodeon Universe (Butterfly Bay!  Roller Coasters!) plus another tidbit or two….. 

Let’s go exploring –we’re headed towards the Apple store first–     

Oops, first, did I mention Bon Jovi was in town?






Next , we’re off to Nickelodeon Universe!     






Whew:   Shareology needs to catch her breath after all that excitement!   What’s this?  Something New!  Butterfly Bay!   Let’s go inside:     




Before you leave Butterfly Bay, make sure you don’t have any hitchhikers on you…these butterflies don’t mind hitching a ride!     One more stop before we leave:    

Nothing like having Sir Paul's daughter design an outfit for your kids!

Spring Break may be over but the iPads, the butterflies and the roller coasters  are waiting for you at Mall of America.  We bid adieu for now, but we’ll be back!

Banish the Winter Blahs at Mall of America! February 10, 2010

Shareology is pretty much done with winter; one might wish that winter felt the same way.   Minneapolis has had its share of snow lately, although the East Coast is waaaaaay ahead of us in flyover land.   What you don’t have on either the East or West Coasts is………..  the Mall of America!   As soon as the latest red and orange warning colors cleared on, Shareology was off to MOA to check out what might be a reason for living.   She found several; however, before she set foot in the actual mall, she had to endure one final blast of white: 

Between the West Parking Ramp and Macy's, Shareology found.......more Snow!!!

 Ed Hardy opened last October and is the perfect place to find a pricey T shirt with attitude: 



One of the oldies but goodies at Mall of America is Legoland, still entertaining kids of all ages: 



The great thing about MOA is you can find stores devoted to just one thing:  say sunglasses — or flip-flops!  Yep, deep in the heart of Minnesota winter, an entire store devoted to flip-flops  with the perfect name of Flips: 



What struck Shareology about this trip to Mall  of America is that there are a boatload of things to do that don’t speak much to traditional retail.  Wanna go wall climbing?   You can do that smack in the middle (OK, off to the NW wall) of Nickelodeon Universe: 




Some windows include a web site these days; some go straight to texting: 


It is approaching Valentine’s Day and there are lots of options: 


remember, dark chocolate is goooood for you!

Two last items before we leave; the first is an important historical note buried in the northwest corner of Nickelodeon Universe: 


Finally, also in Nickelodeon Universe, Shareology found that promise of spring she was looking for: 


All better now!
