Pororo Park in D-Cube City (Seoul with a Toddler)
The Pororo character is everywhere in Seoul. If a Korean product is marketing to children, more than likely Pororo's little penguin face is somewhere on the package. Although Sam doesn't watch Pororo often she loves showing me everywhere he is in the community. With all the rain this monsoon season Sam and I have been heading to indoor areas to spend our days. Recently we drove to D-Cube city to enjoy some time at Pororo Park.
GPS Address: 360-51 Sindorim-dong, Guro-gu, Seoul, South Korea
Subway: Lines 2 and 1 Station Sindorim (Map)
Although Pororo Park officially opens at 10:30am the D-Cube Department store doesn't open until 11am, making getting in from the underground parking lot interesting.
Thankfully when we arrived we only had to wait 10min until 11 so it ended up not being an issue. Levels B3- B7 are all underground parking so I haven't had an issue with finding a spot yet. Pororo Park is on the 4th floor. It takes up half the floor so it's easy to spot.

Sand Pit Play Area!There is also a Pororo show played several times a day at the park. We headed over to the theater as soon as we got in to check the time of the next showing so we didn't miss it. The actors were dressed in large scale character outfits and do some skits and sing some songs. The whole show is in Korean but Sam still enjoyed dancing along.

There is a birthday party room inside the park as well. Forgot to ask specifics but I did remember to take a picture of the sign. Hopefully I can get someone to translate that for me soon!
After Pororo Park we headed down to the food court on level B2. Behind the Korean Food Street is a mom and children eating area. Sam got to take some rides and play in the baby area while we ate.
We also took a trip to H&M on the 2nd floor while we were there. They have a large children's clothing section. The also have a small selection of maternity clothing next to the stairs in the children's section.
