Kids Cafe

*I didn't take any pictures at the kids cafe because it was crazy. I put up this pajama party picture as a contrast. We made them fake sleep. Don't they look quiet and innocent? Now think of the opposite. That's how they were at the kids cafe.*

Imagine having forty toddler to school age children and taking them to a glorified McDonald's indoor play area. Then, throw in good food, coffee, and beer. What you get is the Little Prince Kids Cafe.

I had the joy of experiencing this cafe on Friday, when my boss and I took 30 students there for a Flea Market party. The kids went crazy. They screamed as they went into the ball pit. They screamed as they went on the merry-go-round. They screamed as they purchased sugary drinks from the counter. And, they screamed as they pounded their candy. It was deafening and exhilarating all at once. If I had been 8 years old, I would be in little Jackie heaven. But as a 26 year old Jackie, I was strengthened in my resolve to wait a few more years before having a bundle of joy myself.

The best part of it all was imagining a group of mothers taking their kids to this cafe and letting the happy Little Prince workers watch their kids as they took in a few brews. (It reminded me of our parents poker games of yesteryear.) If I were a mother, I would relish in the chance to sit and chat while the kids went haywire. Nickie and I could catch up and drink while the kids bond and drool and consume mass quantities of sugar. Sounds like a plan!


  1. Can I assume this means you are not going to have a 3 year old birthday party that is crashed by an Uncle who encourages all the kids to scream? This "great" aunt will certainly try to replicate that in the future just say the word.

  2. I'm glad to be mentioned yet again in your blog! I can't wait to take care of our screaming kids with you. Are there Kids Cafes in the states?! Love, Nickie

  3. This post makes me re-think becoming a mother - and I already am one! I can just imagine all of the screaming and wildness! I did hear all this by the way!

  4. Hi! I would love to have my sons 3rd birthday party there but I cannot find a contact number or anything for it! We live in Yangju(hubby is CRC)
