If your child loves Minecraft and LEGO then you can guarantee they will love one of these sets.
The problem is there are so many to choose from – it’s overwhelming!
I’m here to help and I’ve handpicked 13 of the best LEGO Minecraft sets. I’ve covered different age groups and ones to suit all budgets. And if you’re looking for other gifts that aren’t LEGO then check out our guide to the 15 best Minecraft toys.
This pirate ship contains all you need for your child to have a hearty adventure. Highlights include working cannons, rowboat, gangplank, pirate banner and a motley Minecraft crew. Buckle up sea dogs, let's set the compass for Skull Island and get our mitts on this bownty! Coming along for the ride is Minecraft parrot, turtle and dolphin.
The possibilities are endless with this set. It's straight from the video game manual in that it's designed so kids can create any LEGO set they wish. Lighthouse? Yep. Mine? Of course. Castle? No problem. And the list goes on, as long as their imagination. There's certainly enough blocks. Children will be delighted with the included characters: Alex, Steve, a Creeper, pig and a Zombie.
The idea here is that you recreate the Minecraft bedrock levels to whatever design you wish. And then your child must defend the perimeter walls against those pesky zombies. In terms of characters there's a great collection including Steve & Alex, a Creeper, silverfish and zombie. When you're ready descend into the mine where the cave spider can't wait to meet you!
This is cool! Build an igloo on top of a snow covered scene with loads of room for their imagination to run wild. In this icy landscape there are ice blocks, trees, plants, water area and an arrow dispenser - handy! Alex is included along with a polar bear mummy and baby.
This is a monster set and one of the priciest on this list. There's a couple of configurations that this one can take but the main idea is to build a shelter and furnish it with a bed, crafting table, ladders and of course a secret trapdoor to do away with any nasty characters. You receive a Steve, red sheep (that can be sheared), a skeleton horseman with his enchanted helmet and bow. You'll also need some of the fighting tools including a pickaxe and sword.
LEGO Minecraft is certainly not cheap but this one does fall on the less pricey side and represents good value for money. The mission here is for your child to build two mega monsters - a Redstone Golem and a Redstone Monstrosity. There's plenty of movement and articulation and so they do battle with the four mini-figures that come with this set. These heroes are Hex, Hedwig, Hal and Valorie – along with a piggy bank that’s bursting with loot, plus lots of cool weapons.
For pure cost per piece The Illager Raid is a great value, monster of a set. You are tasked to build a detailed village with all the trimmings - house, field, scenery and traders booth. You then protect the village from rampaging nasties including Illagers led by the Pillager Captain, with him is a Vindicator and a Ravager, whose mouth snaps open and shut. There's a Ninjago crossover with a mini-figure of Kai.
Our friend Steve stars in this set with a zombie and a spider whilst the cave itself is furnished with a waterfall, lava fall and different types of minerals such as Redstone, Gold and Obsidian. To help Steve in his quest he can use TNT explosives, a ladder and torch.
This is a smaller set with a price tag to match. But you will receive one of the most important characters in Minecraft - The Ender Dragon. This is the end of level big baddie that all Minecraft players have a lot of love for. As well as constructing the dragon itself there are End Pillars and an Ender Man monster. There's an end crystal with pop-up functionality.
This set contains two extra large characters to build, and the kids love it. The two stars here are BigFig Creeper and an Ocelot. After the build the fun only begins - there's loads of articulation to bring the battle between to life. It's a fun affordable option.
This is a super adorable set and feature the extra cute Pandas that the kids love that feature in the game. Get to work as you build the panda, it's baby, bamboo shoots and a small ruin area. You also get Alex and Ocelot which has a movable tail. There's more accessories - you'll receive a fish, cake, lamp and a diamond pickaxe accessory for Alex if there’s any Minecraft gold to be mined.
Aimed at the slightly older children you're tasked with building an island with a giant red mushroom, another island with an equally big brown mushroom, and a boat. You'll also receive a crafting table and animal pen to help with the exploding fence feature. Trusty Alex is there along with Creeper minifigures.
