There is one reason we go to the Mall of America: Legoland. My kids are Lego fanatics. It's a great destination on a day when we can't be outside much. Admittedly, we don't buy anything, but the boys love to play with the building tables. They like to make race cars to race down the ramps. They like to look at all the big Lego models around the store. And the store itself is a lot of fun. There's a special screen that you can hold marked Lego boxes up to and it shows you what the finished project will look like--with animation! It's a good opportunity to teach kids that they don't always need to get something when they go to a store. Of course, if you're going to spend money, there is also Nickelodeon theme park, mini golf, plenty of food and Legos, of course. My advice is to go during the week when parking is a little easier to find.
