Previous readers of the blog know that I am intrigued every time I see a new block collection and want to see what they have to offer. I was looking at a new post tool and it listed all the collections it was compatible with, most of which I had seen. But it listed one called “Kioken Blocks” which I had never heard of, so I wanted to give it a try.
It comes with 19 blocks, and so let’s see how they do on my site…
They are mostly all decently-rendered and designed, with a few standouts. Most of them have an extra animation option, which most block collections do not do. And their extra 19th block is for Kioken Elements which lets you load a lot of pre-designed block patterns, with options to upgrade to pro modes.
A decent collection, but none of them screamed “must-have”. If I had to identify the best three, I would say Divider Plus, Visual List, and Split Headings as all three are relatively unique to Kioken, haven’t seen those in other block collections. Unfortunately, I don’t really need any of them enough to keep the collection around.
