Minecraft is an innovative video game that began humbly back in 2009, and has quickly grown into the worldwide phenomenon that it is today.
The popular game has crossed age and gender lines, encouraging families of all backgrounds to build, create, learn, and explore together.
As a game that thrives on imagination, problem solving, and critical thinking skills, while also introducing kids to engineering, math, and design concepts, Minecraft is teacher and parent approved.
Many schools have even included Minecraft in their classroom curriculum.
It’s no secret that Minecraft gifts are at the top of many wish lists this holiday season. I know in my own family, my kids are excitedly anticipating some new toys and accessories related to the crowd-pleasing game.
If you are seeking top rated Minecraft gifts for your loved ones, you’ll appreciate the wide selection currently available at Best Buy.
In Minecraft, players have the option of exploring randomly generated worlds, or creating their own. They can build everything from simple homes to intricate castles while playing alone, or with others.
Players can choose between Creative Mode, with unlimited resources, or Survival Mode, where they will spend time mining for materials to craft weapons and armor in order to fend off dangerous mobs. Either way, the adventures are endless!
Minecraft games are available for a variety of consoles, including Xbox 360, PS4, and Wii U. They are family-friendly and great for kids (and adults) of all ages.
A top-seller this year (and a gift that my own kids are getting), is the Microsoft Xbox One S 500 GB Minecraft Favorites Console Bundle. Best Buy has the lowest price I’ve seen on this item, plus free shipping, making it an unbeatable deal.
Minecraft toys and collectibles make great gifts for players of the game, and allow fans to take the action off screen. Some favorites include Minecraft Mini Figures and Minecraft Mini Figures Collector Case.
Kids can create their own stop-motion movies based on the game, using the Minecraft Motion Movie Set. With 4 backgrounds, mini figures, a phone/tablet holder, and downloadable mobile app, players will have everything they need to get started producing their own Minecraft videos.
The Mattel Minecraft Flying Ghast Quadcopter with Remote Control, that brings the nether-dwelling creature to life, is sure to be a beloved gift for any Minecraft fan. Simply use the included remote to fly Ghast in all directions through the air, just like in the video game. An added bonus is the automatic landing feature that ensures the toy lands safely back on the ground after use.
