Lego Minecraft The First Night, £39.99

Age suitability: 8+


Your kids have probably already made an exact to scale replica of the Starship Enterprise on their video game version, so why not take things back to basics with this First Night Lego set? Lego is, after all, the original Minecraft.

It may be more low-tech than their beloved games, but hardcore minifans of the game will love the detail on the pixelated Steve figure and his archenemy zombie, the Creeper. Once they've had fun building to survive, they're bound to display the completed set in pride of place in their bedroom.
