If you have kids I presume you have heard of Minecraft. I first heard of Minecraft a few years ago, I vaguely remember being asked to buy some strange block toys.
At the time I didn't get them, was it a game? Should they be like lego and connect together? Did they have a purpose? Are they collectables? Each person or very strange looking figure came with a block and a little extra.
James and Liam absolutely loved them. Soon all the blocks fell into place, our world was turned on it's head. Minecraft the video game was born and taken our house over. It is Minecraft this, Minecraft that, the game has really gripped my boys and the majority of their friends. Over the years it is evolving slowly, lots of new characters and I rather like the spin off video game Minecraft Story mode.
My little gamer dudes adore Minecraft, with all of the extensions of the merchandise is a bonus for them.
The original characters from Series 1, every Minecraft fan little dream Steve, Enderman and grass blocks. It doesn't matter if they are so called baddies or goodies, they are all very popular.
Recently, I have been sent a couple of their latest character sets from series 3. Steve with a Minecart and torch. Perfect for travelling quickly and running away from all the baddies.
Steve can sit in the cart, the cart has wheels and can be pushed around. It is great as it has a function. Steve looks exactly the same as his video game character.
We also received a Zombie Pigman Pack. He is my favourite. Just because his character is newer than the original ones. He also looks rather funky compared to the other. Lots of colour making him standout, half pig, half zombie man. They are rather strong in the video game too.
These sets are excellence quality, smooth, no sharp corners. The new sets all gel with the existing sets.
When James and Liam received the packs they screamed the house down. These little sets went down a dream.
Let me introduce you to my sons, who will explain their new toys!
Both of these Minecraft sets can be purchased Smyths Toys;
RRP is £7.99 however they are being sold in all major toy stores and are available online.
There are plenty of great new characters to collect!
Who is favourite, let me know. I love hearing from you.
Disclaimer: We were sent a couple of sets for an honest review.
