Ryan Carter Stephen Ropfogel takes some pride in being unconventional. It is part of his business to get people's attention. "Yeah, I kind of look at things a little obtusely," he said.

For parents, it was a break from shopping. For children 42 inches and shorter, it was a chance to have some fun in a mall full of businesses intended for their parents. But it had a message. The new Healthy Habits for Healthy Living Play Area, unveiled Friday on the upper level of the Galleria, near JC Penney, is an attempt by its creators to fuse a message of promoting children's health with promoting the mall and Glendale Adventist Medical Center's public outreach programs.
