Minecraft is easily one of the most popular video games to ever hit consoles or PC, dropping players into a world that they can build inside of as they explore.

However, the absolute best Minecraft toy is the Lego Minecraft Bedrock Adventures which lets your kids continue to build and use their imagination, without requiring a game console to do it.

Best Overall: Lego Minecraft Bedrock Adventures

Minecraft might be a video game, but there are also a wide variety of different lego sets that take the game and bring it into the real world. While different Minecraft lego sets all deliver tons of fun and the ability to enjoy the world without having to be plugged into a video game to do it.

While there are grey blocks to denote you have delved underground, your kids will also find a variety of great minifigs to play with. This set comes with a spider, creeper, zombie, two silverfish, Alex and Steve Minecraft figures.

Best Action Figure: Minecraft Ender Dragon

The big boss in Minecraft is the epic Ender Dragon, a black behemoth who spits fire and is hiding somewhere in the world. While your kids might not be motivated to hunt it down in-game, they can now play with an action figured of this beastie in the real world.

It has wings and a tail that moves, light-up eyes, and even roars. Best of all it can spit purple disc "fireballs" out of its mouth...although parents will want to keep an eye out to make sure they don't get lost along the way!

Pros:

  • Awesome Ender Dragon figurine
  • Wings move, and it roars

Best Prop: Transforming Sword and Pickaxe

In the world of Minecraft, you're nothing without the right tools for the job. Try to mine without a pickaxe, or deal with pesky skeletons without a sword and you're going to have a bad time. Mattel's transforming Sword and Pickaxe toys aim to ensure that whatever fantasy world your child is exploring with their imagination, they're always equipped for what they find.

This toy shifts between being a sword and a pickaxe. In both versions, it's made of hard plastic and retains the pixelated look from Minecraft. Shifting between pickaxe and sword is a straightforward affair, so kids can do it all by themselves by pushing and pulling parts of the toy to shift it over. While it is a hard plastic sword, when you switch to pickaxe mode, it has a soft foam tip so that kids can feel like they are mining when it's time to play.

Pros:

  • Two toys in one package
  • Looks just like the game

Cons:

  • Hard plastic
  • Tips of pickaxe can break if you aren't careful
