One of the handy things about having a Minecraft fan in the family is that it makes gift giving pretty easy! There's a ton of themed toys and other stuff to choose from... and when I say a ton, I mean a TON.
It can all be a bit overwhelming, so to help you out I've picked some of the things that are most popular, well reviewed or just look really fun (and there are more ideas in part one, The Really Big List of Minecraft Gift Ideas).
MINECRAFT STOP-MOTION ANIMATION STUDIO
This is really cool, it combines real-life objects with a mobile app so kids can create their own stop-motion Minecraft movies. The kit comes with a stage, different backgrounds, three collectibles and other accessories.
Mattel make a cute range of little 2" figurines, there are lots to collect. They come in 3-packs that range from around $9.99 to $19.99, like the Electrified Creeper, Magma Cube and Chicken pictured above, or you can buy them individually in a Mystery Box for around $4 - the fun with that one is that you don't know which one you've got until you open it!
They also make a carry case to display the collectibles in, which is a really handy way to keep them safe (and bring them along on playdates). It's a neat design where you can store the figurines on one side and flip it over to play with them on the other.
MINECRAFT CRAFTING TABLE
This is a great idea for having a bit of crafty fun. The Crafting Table kit contains 1500 little cubes which can be combined to make real life copies of items in the game (or invent new ones!) - once they've been arranged on the tray you just spray them with water and they magically bind together.
MINECRAFT CARD GAME
One way to help kids transition when their screentime is up is to encourage them to extend their gameplay offline, and this Minecraft card game is a great example of how to do that. It's inexpensive and easy to understand, and would particularly suit 8-10 year olds.
MINECRAFT STORY MODE
Story Mode is a separate video game based on Minecraft, with new stories and characters to follow. It's a bit like a 'choose your own adventure' TV show:
"You are Jesse, and you and your friends are thrown into an awe-inspiring adventure to save the world. While visiting EnderCon, your gang stumbles on something dreadful. Terror is unleashed, and your only hope is to track down the “Order of the Stone”, a fabled group of adventurers who slew the legendary Ender Dragon. But where are they? In a race against time, you will travel across the over-world, through the Nether, to The End, and beyond."
ASSORTED MINECRAFT PLUSH TOYS
And finally I have to include plush toys again because my youngest loves them so much - this 9-pack of 7" plush is really cute and pretty good value. There's a baby cow, bat, baby ocelot, squid, baby sheep, creeper, baby pig, enderman and baby mooshroom.
So there you go, hopefully you found some ideas here to help you find just the right thing for the Minecraft fans in your life!
