Minecraft has hit the world by storm, and my 12 year old is completely and utterly sold to it. He adores the game, and will spend hours talking me through his ‘creations’. But now, LEGO have come up with the Official Minecraft sets, which means children, adults alike, can be just as creative in real life too!
There is 6 sets available…

Then load up the precious ores, jump aboard the minecart and hurtle past the Creeper, zombie and skeleton, using the iron sword to keep them at bay until you’re safely above ground. All in a day’s work for a LEGO® Minecraft™ hero! Includes a Steve minifigure with weapons and accessories, plus a skeleton, zombie, spider and a Creeper™.
