Baby and Kids' Cafes in Korea

Updated 25 June 2017

Thanks to Baby Z in Seoul, Expat Parents Korea!, and Seoul Mom and Kids for this info!

Korea is a great place for kids. It's safe and everyone, old people especially, will tell you how cute (and cold! even in summer old people will tell you how cold your children are!) your childre are.

Kids cafes are everywhere. This is not a complete list by any means. There are tons and tons of kids' cafes around Korea. Kids under 12 months are usually free. Many grocery stores like Homeplus and Emart often have a little jungle gym area where you can live kids over the age of 4. If they're under 4 you have to stay with them. These places are usually about 4,000 for two hours.

There are also bigger places that have anything from ball pits, crafts, bubble, trampolines, Wii, merry-go-rounds, trains, sand pits, kitchen sets, blocks, and a whole lot more. Places in Seoul are more expensive and you might end up paying up to 15,000 per kid. Some places will charge the adults and give you a free coffee others will let adults in for free but they have to order something or pay a no-ordering fine which is about 5,000.
