*WARNING: Santa Spoiler*

There was ONE item that you wanted when you were a youth.  
What was it? 
You know, the one your begged and pleaded for. 
The one you sold your soul for? 
 Show us a pic if you can and tell us a story about how you got it. 
You know how this works! 
Write us a post. 
Come back Monday March 22nd and Link up with us ! 

The year was nineteen ninety-three; the holiday was Christmas; on the wish list was Mall Madness.

Oh how I wished to swipe that playful plastic. Shop those sales and grab that cash!
Did it happen?

Nope, not in 1993.

1994? No.

1995? Negative.

1996? Bingo!

I remember searching through the cedar closet for something.

There in the middle of Santa's loot, stood Mall Madness. 

Mall Madness?!?!

I was so upset that I went and told my mom that I had found it.
To which she replied, "I thought you wanted Mall Madness!"
"Umm...yeah...Three years ago!"

I wasn't interested in make-believe shopping. 

I was interested in shopping for real!

Well, needless to say, I didn't let collect dust.
I did get some playing time anyway.

Oh how I remember having to place those gold stickers on the electronic part when I first opened it. 

I feel so bad about that now because she always works so hard getting us things that we like and want. :( 


  1. Hilarious! I remember this game!

  2. I've never seen this game before ... where have I been? I was way into Life ... getting married, having kids, choosing a career, ... but this looks like a game I would prefer, especially now that I have all those other things IRL. I could use a little mall escape from reality :)

  3. LOL!!! I 've never seen it either- hilarious!

  4. OMG I remember Mall Madness!! I never had that one, but I did have Sweet Valley High and my friends and I would play that all the time.

  5. Oh gah I played Mall Madness till my eyes crossed. That was my all time favorite...but I didnt wait three years to get it either.....LOL LOL. Cute post.

  6. I hope it doesn't take me 3 years to get things my kids want for Christmas. 3 years is 3 lifetimes ago when you are a child.

  7. I forgot all about Mall Madness! I LOVED that game! "Attention shoppers, there is a sale in the shoe department!" Thanks for bringing me back to when I was 10. :)

  8. Wow. I am soooooo old. No idea this game ever existed. ;)

  9. Oh that's great! I had Dream Phone. Loved it!

  10. OMG! I had that game. I also had some game where you had to put little red zit stickers on your face if you got the question wrong. I want to say it was a truth or dare type game.

  11. What a fun memory...but I too loved mall Madness...I still remember how they said, "kitchen store" it was like..."keeetch-in store"
