REVIEW – Several weeks ago, I reviewed the Giiker Super Slider puzzle game and now I’m back with a review of the Giiker Super Blocks puzzle game. Is it super fun? Let’s find out.
What is it?
The Giiker Super Blocks puzzle game is a handheld battery-powered puzzle game for kids ages 6 and up that does not require any apps, computers, etc to set up or play.

Design and features?
The he Giiker Super Blocks puzzle game consists of the handheld console shown above. It features a peg playing board with a built-in LED on each peg. There are also 3 control buttons for power and puzzle navigation. Above the buttons is the indicator that shows you which color pieces are used for the current puzzle.
The back of the console has a battery compartment.
The Giiker Super Blocks puzzle game is powered by 2 AA batteries which are not included with the game.
Also included are 16 plastic blocks in 4 colors. The blocks are designed to snap over the pegs on the playing board.
On top of each piece is a short handle that makes it easy to insert or remove the pieces from the Giiker puzzle board.
The holes in the pieces allow the LEDs to shine through so you can tell if you’ve correctly placed the piece.
How to play Giiker Super Blocks
To play the Giiker Super Blocks puzzle game, you need to insert 2 AA batteries into the back of the game and then press and hold the red power button to power on the console. The game will immediately display the next unsolved puzzle by lighting up the pegs on the puzzle board. I will also light up the red, blue, yellow, or green piece above the buttons to let you know which color pieces you will need to use to solve the puzzle.
The object of the game/puzzle is to place the pieces on the board in the right orientation to cover the lighted pegs. Once you do this correctly, the pieces will blink and a tone will play to let you know that you’ve successfully solved the puzzle. You can then remove the pieces and the next puzzle will automatically be shown.
The Giiker Super Blocks puzzle game has over 1000 puzzles built into the unit and you can play regular games or time-limited games. There’s also a learn mode that gives you a hint if you can’t figure ut how to solve a puzzle. Check out my video below where I demonstrate how to play the game.

What I like
- Easy to learn
- Requires no subscriptions or apps to play
- 1000+ puzzles
What I’d change
- Include batteries
The Giiker Super Blocks puzzle game is a fun game for kids that is easy to learn. At $57, it’s a little pricey. But I like that it doesn’t require any special setup from a phone or computer and helps kids learn to solve problems and learn how shapes work together.
