Those of you whose DCs are into Minecraft - do you have any decent related non-virtual gifts?

The DCs have been introduced to Minecraft this half-term by a cousin and it has fast become a favourite. I was looking around for some related bits and pieces I could get them for Christmas and some of the things on Amazon for instance look like very hastily put together rubbish to capitalise on the market. Some of the books have terrible reviews. Have seen there are some lego sets. Any suggestions for anything else please?

The lego sets look amazing, they've just bought out some more. You can get various plushes and t shirts. The box of papercraft is excellent, kept dd quiet for ages.

You can buy minecraft papercraft, basically origami minecraft. Ithink Iwill get some for my eldest daughter.

Thanks everyone, I will check out the papercraft and Lego sets. I can't knit though!

I've bought ds a minecraft hoody from Tescos. I've also looked at the lego but not bought any, it seems quite pricey for what it is but I know ds would love it.

There are also minecraft soft toys if you think they would be appreciated. DS loved getting a minecraft pig for his birthday a few months ago.

I saw a cool minecraft beanie hat

The creeper hoody is cool.

The lego sets are cool but expensive.

DS loves his Minecraft t-shirts. The Lego is really expensive for what you get.

Somewhere is doing the lego on 3 for 2 from Wednesday , maybe Argos?

I second that the LEGO looks great. We were in the store at the weekend.

The assistant was funny. She more or less said that the only special bits were the figures-the rest was easily buildable from normal blocks.

We'll be getting it anyway tho for our two!

Sainsburys Tu has Minecraft creeper beanie hats in the boys' section £8 each. Bought a couple today for my boys' stockings.

I had a photobox voucher about to expire, so I ordered a minecraft mug for ds (photo mug with pic off the internet).

awfulomission Sun 02-Nov-14 21:03:19

Ooh, 3 for 2? Will get on to that right away!

Poppiesway Sun 02-Nov-14 21:03:53

I've brought some minecraft lego for ds2 in the sale at asda this week.. Some is reduced in their half price sale

DustBunnyFarmer Sun 02-Nov-14 21:04:53

Lego will be bringing out standard size Lego Minecraft kits soon, so DH tells me. It will be interchangeable with the normal stuff.

My ten year old is a huge minecraft fan. This was his birthday present!

For Christmas I shall be getting him this

My DS loves the little plastic figures. He got one in May for his birthday and has been hankering after more since then.
MIL is buying him a pile of them for him.
I'll prob get a few more.

I've looked at the Lego before but thought it was overpriced. He'd just like the mini-figures to add to his other lego i think.

The hats sound cool though, Sainsburys was it?

DustBunnyFarmer Sun 02-Nov-14 21:14:20

Yup, Sainsburys. I reckon they'll go fast though.

We got the cardboard Steve head for DD1 for Halloween and it was expensive but sturdy. The foam diamond swords same thing.

There is a night-light style light of dark matter or something which is pretty cool too.

Another vote for the papercraft, someone bought us some last Xmas and my eldest is still getting it out to play with/display.

Books are a bit rubbish I think, don't contain anything you can't find on their wiki. Encourages reading though I suppose!

squiggleirl Sun 02-Nov-14 21:27:54

DS loves Minecraft. He got these books, and finds them really good for when he's playing the games.

Also got him a t-shirt in M&S. They had a couple of choices, and all were decent quality.

lucysmam Sun 02-Nov-14 22:57:51

sorry just placemarking to read in the morning, am just off to bed smile

TurboTheChicken Sun 02-Nov-14 23:16:02

I got DS a Minecraft hoody from M&Co, if you have a Loyalty Card with them there is 25% at the moment.

Asda also has little tiny figures for around £3, I got a couple for DS stocking - they were in the pocket money toys section and went VERY quickly.

I've also bought the cheapest of the Lego sets from Amazon.
