Minecraft Steve & Animal Mobs Review

A couple of months ago, I was debating with my husband whether we should get the Minecraft app for Mr K. He had been begging for days. We both knew very little about Minecraft and what the objective of the game is. I’ve since learnt that Minecraft is a Lego style adventure game which puts players in a randomly-generated world where they can create their own structures and contraptions out of textured cubes.

There are two main modes within the game; ‘survival’ and ‘creative’. I had told him that he is only allowed to play in creative play mode and somehow he managed to create his survival world too. A sign of parenting failure! Now Mr K is obsessed with Minecraft and watches YouTube tutorials to get tips to create and build his own world.

He has built 4 worlds and explained to me how he built his house with underground tunnels and how he sheared the sheep for wool.

minecraft animals toyThis detailed and fully articulated action figure pack features 6 Animal Mobs including Cow, Chicken, Pig, Sheep, Tamed Wolf, Ocelot. They look exactly like how you see them in the game. Now both children are able to recreate scenes from the game along with Steve.

They are such a big hit in this house! The figurines are well made and lightweight. Definitely fun to play with.

    These look fab, off to buy them for Monkey’s cousin – perfect timing

    Could I also suggest “The Blockheads” which is sort of similar but in a 2D world. Hours of fun (you get to ride a donkey)

    My kids have played Minecraft now for years and years – I think these look ace, and I’m sure my 16 year old would love to put them on his shelves in his room – the 5 year old would pinch them to play with too! :D
