• Spatial Awareness
• Creative Problem-Solving Skills
• Communication & Collaboration Skills
• Hand-Eye Coordination
• Fine Motor Skills
• An Interest in Maths & Science
• Basic Engineering Skills
• Cognitive Flexibility
• Confidence & Self-Esteem
• Imagination, Creativity & Curiosity
Did you know that at least 14 million tons of plastic ends up in the ocean each year?
We are proud to say, that we are NOT contributing to this statistic, because GIGI Bloks is made from 100% recycleable and 100% biodegradable cardboard, and on top of that- only the cardboard that has been made from timber that has been sourced from 100% sustainable wood plantations get to become your beloved cardboard blocks!
GIGI Bloks come in 2 sizes:
XL and XXL.
The XL Blocks measure approx. W: 135mm D: 65mm H: 84mm
The XXL Blocks measure approx. W: 195mm D: 98mm H: 125mm
Both sizes are suitable for ages 3+
The cardboard bricks are seriously sturdy.
"The cardboard bricks are so solid, and even my three heavy-handed monkeys haven’t broken or damaged any of them (even on the odd occasions when the build wasn’t going their way, and they got stroppy and threw some bricks around)—they’re seriously sturdy!"
- Karen Bleakley, mom of three, Australia
I’d had enough of using up our living room as a playground.
My child used blankets and pillows and everything he could find in the living room as a building material for his ideas. I wasn’t very happy about it. Then I remembered about GIGI Bloks - and chose it as a gift for my 5-year-old’s birthday. Now he has all the building material he needs and he can play out all of his different ideas with these blocks.

At first, I didn’t think my child would like these natural color blocks.
My mom gave GIGI Bloks to our children as a birthday gift. At first I was mad at her - why did she bring these cardboard boxes to our house? But after a couple of days I saw how my children love these blocks and they keep playing with them. I completely changed my opinion after that.

I was worried it would take up a lot of space.
GIGI Bloks looked like great fun, though I was worried they would need quite a bit of space. It turned out you can quickly build two tall towers in the corner of the room while they’re not being used.
- Pippa Best, mom of two, United Kingdom
Yes- they are strong!
Because of the innovative interlocking system, GIGI Bloks are strong and will easily bear a child (and even an adult’s) weight. Just make sure you evenly distribute the weight by covering the blocks with a flat surface. Certified average weight is 59 lb. (27kg) for a XXL block and 53 lb. (24kg) for a XL block.
It is pretty clear that these building blocks are a BIG toy, and it is probably for the best to step away from the fun for a moment and think practically- where are you going to put your cardboard bricks after your children have done playing for the day?
The great news is that the footprint of these big building blocks can be rather small- find a nook or a cranny, next to the wardrobe or chest of drawers and stack the blocks in towers. Or if you want to be practical, you can make a toy box from the cardboard blocks- simply build a hollow square or rectangle and fill the hole with toys. Ta-da!
I created GIGI Bloks because I felt there was something missing from my daughter’s playtime. I asked myself, "What did I have the MOST fun doing as a kid?" And almost all my memories were of specific situations where I would play for hours using my imagination. I'd play house and serve tea to my dolls and stuffed animals. I'd build secret little forts out of pillows and blankets and hide under them. I'd play "the floor is lava" where I couldn't step on certain parts of the floor or else I'd fall into the lava. It was fun. It was memorable. And I believe it was essential.
Whilst there were plenty of small blocks on the market, there was nothing big enough, that was affordable, to build the life-sized adventures I wanted her to have. And so, the idea for GIGI Bloks was born…
I spent months researching materials and studying how children play and developed an INNOVATIVE interlocking system that would allow little architects to safely create awesome skyscrapers!
The blocks are easy to handle and easy to connect. They are strong enough to withstand play and light enough to be safe for children.
Now we have sold over 7 Million Blocks worldwide and have wonderful stories to share!
Every time I see a child play with GIGI Bloks for the first time my eyes light up. They have so much fun. And why wouldn't they? They get to build their own house, next week it might be a tower, then a spaceship, a castle and anything else they like, for THEMSELVES!
Once children are set with an idea of what they want to achieve they are completely lost in bringing their imagined story to the life. They build, they change outfits, they become the heroes of their own stories. And tomorrow, it will be different story! And so, it soon becomes a book of memories with hundreds of stories.
