I was at the Daiso / Saizen store in Glorietta earlier, and I couldn’t help but be amused at these items I found that reminded me so much of Pylones and Cath Kidston (hence, the title of this post hehe!).
Take for example these cleaning brushes in colorful floral design:
They reminded me so much of the multi-tool hammer (in black) which I spotted at Pylones Rockwell last year.
I saw the same “Pylones” effect in these mesh bags:
I stopped myself from hoarding these microfiber clothes with colorful stars:
But ang hirap magpigil because they look cunningly similar to Cath Kidston’s Shooting Stars design:
Now check out this book-shaped gift box, particularly the blue backdrop with little roses in flower-shaped outline:
Design is original daw o, but how come it looks very similar to Cath Kidston’s Provence Rose print:
Provence Rose Foldaway Shopping Bag
Lastly, this hanging pocket organizer almost passed as another Cath Kidston knock-off:
It’s a good thing the roses in the Provence Rose (red) print doesn’t have diamond-shaped outlines!
What can you say, ladies? Is it Aye or Nay for these Daiso / Saizen products? =)

Going to Daiso or Saizen has always been a treat! Na-adik ako dati sa pagbili ng mga Origami Papers. 🙂 what did you buy? 🙂 i like the hanging pocket organizer. Ang cute.
I bought only stuff for our home….nakabantay kase si AJ eh hehe!
I have floral dividers and notebooks from Daiso. Not quite Cath Kidston-y, but very pretty pa rin. Sayang wala na ngayon, eh kumupas na yung dividers ko.
If you don’t hold on to your money well, ang bilis maubos pag pumasok ng Daiso and Saizen. Para kasing ang mura, yet when I’m on the counter na, magugulat na lang ako almost 1K na ang bill ko.
We are addicted to Japan Home’s bottles and jars 🙂 Japan Home is one of my happy places. The bigger the branch, the happier I become.
Me too! I frequent Japan Home more, as it has branches near my home while Daiso is slightly far from where I live. If you want variety and affordability, though, Daiso has way more, with all at $2, but if you want quality then go to Japan Home.
Hello Rong! Welcome to The Bright Spot!
I super love Daiso! I always spend around 30mins every time I pass by their store. 😀
And I thought I was the only one who thought so! The good thing is that I can get something with a similar print to Cath Kidston (which I like but it’s way too expensive) for only $2. The negative is, of course, it’s a knockoff copy.
