Has it been a while since you hit up a Daiso store? Don’t be shocked to find out it’s no longer “Always $2!” Daiso has increased their prices as of 1 May 2022 with a new pricing system, in light of rising GST costs in Singapore. Daiso products are now sold at a range of $2.16 to $25.70 at any of the Daiso locations in Singapore. Here I list out some Daiso toys, supplies and home decor items you might actually find useful.

Best Kid-friendly Daiso Buys

Small Toys: From $2.16

best things to buy daiso small toys

We love Daiso’s kids’ toys for keeping the kids occupied on rainy weekends, long plane rides or road trips! Our top picks include the 3D puzzles (space-themed and dinosaur-themed ones available), small figurine assembly kits, dolls, petit blocks (mini ‘lego’ sets) and even slime! I admit, one would argue the usefulness of cheap slime, but seeing as how you could be spending more on ‘quality’ slime from a toy store only for it to collect all sorts of gross little particles from the floor and eventually become unusable… I’d say go for the Daiso version! Do note however that we can’t guarantee that these are non-toxic.

During festive periods, you can always count on Daiso to have the best affordable decorations for parties. For Halloween decor they stock up on spiders, jack-o-lantern buckets, lamps, ornaments, streamers and even costume accessories like witches hats and more! For Christmas decorations you can find lots of tinsel, baubles, accessories for tree-decorating, mini Christmas trees and more.

Beauty Products: From $2.16

Daiso’s beauty aisle is stocked with every makeup product possible – eyeshadow, blush, lipstick, fake eyelashes, disposable sponges, serums, face wash… the list goes on! While you may want to exercise caution before excitedly buying a $2.16 serum, I do highly recommend the brush cleansers. They’re great for cleaning your makeup brushes (and you should be doing that regularly if you don’t already) and are effective for the price!

Photo Frames: $2.16 – $4.10

We all know how hard it is to get inexpensive, non-IKEA photo frames! So chancing upon these $2.16 frames in various sizes was a nice surprise. Available in multiple different colours, designs and photo orientations too!

Tableware: From $2.16

Daiso Singapore has a decent range of pottery, including ceramic plates, bowls, mugs, small dishes and more – some in really cute prints and designs. I also spotted some woven seagrass coasters which are really trendy for that resort home feel.

With Daiso being a Japanese store you can trust them to stock useful sushi-making tools! You can find sushi rolling mats, sushi moulds and even special sushi cutlery. This Nigiri Sushi Mold is great for making round sushi balls – you can even let the kids try this! Just put a small amount of sushi rice in each compartment and shake till each one becomes a ball.

Daiso’s section of cleaning supplies is huuuge. I haven’t tried any of the liquid cleaners or dishwashing soaps myself, but there are plenty of multi-packs of sponges, wipes and floor cleaning wipes that would be great to stock up on. I’ve also heard great things about Daiso’s washing machine cleaner!

Our Top Tips for Shopping at Daiso Singapore

  • If you’re running errands and the kids are getting restless, you can use Daiso as a reward for good behaviour if the mall you’re in has one. If there’s no fighting or complaining after visiting store after store, surprise the kids with $2.50 each (maybe $5 if you’re feeling extra generous) to choose whatever they want from Daiso at the end!
  • Many of the arts & crafts items and toys (like magic tricks and pranks) are great for Christmas stocking stuffers (or party favours) if you have small kids!
  • If you’re travelling, it’s always helpful to stop by Daiso before a long flight and pick up some surprise toys for small kids to keep them busy on the flight!

We hope this helps. Happy shopping, mamas!
