These sets are really good for keeping the brain active in my opinion. Maybe they should have these sets available for the elderly at assisted living rather than just puzzles. A lot more interesting. I love playing with LEGO sets with my grandchildren and they have no problems putting them together. I love Minecraft too so this is the perfect set to collect. Simple to press blocks together and get them apart again. Very nice colors and there are also some moving parts. Cute characters and animals. I think the sword and crossbow are adorable. Great sturdy craftsmanship. This set should last forever. Simple to rinse off dust. Good size on the figure.

Really nice set. I cannot say it is the best Minecraft set thus far, but it is a nice set. All of the figures are good. We'll go over them now: Steve: overall a solid minfigure. Neat that he has the golden legs. Same figure since 2014 though... I feel that Steve needs some dual-molded arms! Skeleton: like Steve, same figure since 2014. Not a bad thing though, as this Skeleton looks awesome as always! The addition of the fire piece to show him burning as it is day time (or, maybe Steve's sword has Fire Aspect?) is really great. Wolf: not totally sure if the wolf is supposed to be a tame wolf or a wild one, but it looks pretty good. Same build as the other ones as far as I can tell, but new printing for the face. Fox: the first-ever LEGO Minecraft fox, and it looks pretty good. My only problem with it is that it reuses the cat/ocelot head piece, and the eye-printing does not wrap around to the sides of the head. Hopefully the fox can come in a future set with a proper head-mold. The set: overall, this set is a good display piece. It includes Sweet Berries and a TNT explode function, which are neat. Here are the pros and cons of the set: Pros: A two-by-four jumper? Awesome! Even more awesome? There are two of them! Fire for Skeleton Sweet Berries! Clever use of the new flower piece in red and the old one in green for the berries themselves. Glad that they are removable from the bushes! The set also includes enough pieces to build one extra berry, which is nice. TNT-fun play feature for kids Cons: Fox reusing the cat/ocelot head The amount of pros far outweighs the cons for this one. I definitely recommend it for any Minecraft fan!
