I teach at an adult hagwon, but I start the day with an elementary age class. We usually play dodgeball for a bit before class starts, but I haven't been able to find any replacement beach balls here, and the one we're using has been taped up so much, it's on its last legs.
When I taught in Japan, I just used to go to Daiso to pick them up, but I haven't seen them at any Daisos here. I haven't noticed them in department stores here either (although I haven't looked in that many), so do any of you know what kind of stores sell them here?

Thanks

try going near any public schools. They have a few small stores that sell school supplies inlcluding balls you're talking about.

Bought some "can't believe it's not butter" at e-mart a few days ago with a free beach ball attached.

Beach balls ARE cheap!. About $3, and you want to pay less! It's like saying where can I buy a cheap box of matches

If you'd actually read my OP, you'd see that I'm not complaining about the price. I'm saying I haven't seen beach balls for sale anywhere in this country. That's why I'm looking for suggestions where I can find one.
