Our son loves looking at mobiles. Because of that we have multiple mobiles throughout our place. Baby related items in Korea cost a mint. Retail stores include baby specialty shops and department stores. For the adventurous and frugal, head to Dongdaemun and Namdaemun for baby bedding, clothes and shoes. Mother-in-law spent nearly a hundred dollars on a mobile at Shinsegae Department Store and then stumbled upon the bargain baby stuff at Namdaemun Market.

The most fun and interactive mobile was handmade.


Baby visitors have been asked to fold colorful origami paper so we can add to this special mobile. Another cool aspect is that you can make it move while holding baby by blowing a burst of air.
