The Lego Minecraft fortress will kick start your children’s creativity and imagination in an era where all too often the computer and virtual reality dominates our kids’ lives.
With LEGO Minecraft the ever growing and evolving online game world is brought to real life and to the fingertips of Children and some adults with LEGO bricks another innovative company that encourages creativity, a perfect partnership in my view.
You can now build Lego Minecraft fortress in3D reality and bring the game to life.
The fortress comes with large pressure-plated doors, lookout towers, decorative Creeper banners, barred windows, water and farm areas and a prison with door-opening function.
Light the fires and torches to ward off the approaching skeleton army. Weapons include 5 swords and 3 skeleton bows.
Measuring 48 x 9.4 x 37.8 cm and weighing 1.8kgs I’d recommend this Lego set for children over 8 but with adult supervision for under 9’s as stated on the instructions.
In my opinion Minecraft is one of the most creative games available online today.
With this range by LEGO it brings the game to life putting that action in a 3D real time environment.
Getting your child to play with the Lego Minecraft sets helps on the saving on the electricity bill as well!
Another advantage of the Lego Minecraft fortress in particular is that you are not confined to building one design. This set actually lets you build different designs.
Rapid alterations from gatehouse to keep to towers, or fortified walls is easily taken on while the Scale of this product is very similar to the Lego city range. The figures keep in line with the Minecraft theme as they have square heads instead of the custom round heads that we associate with other Lego themes although some may prefer a more traditional looking figure but I would say that’s personal preference.
There are 984 Lego pieces I this set so which will keep a child occupied for a very long time as they will certainly come up with their own designs.
WHO IT IS FOR
I would suggest the Lego Minecraft fortress is not appropriate for children under the age of 9 without adult supervision however I am not going to restrict the age limit in my review as most certainly adult Lego and Minecraft enthusiast will most certainly want this in their collection.
It is extremely ideal for stimulating a child’s imagination and getting them away from the computer and enhancing visual development.
If you was to buy this product in the shops you would probably be looking at £125 however I have sourced this set on amazon for £74.99 and if you are already a prime member then this will include free delivery.
With 984 pieces that’s approx. 8p per Lego brick. If you look at it like that it’s not such a bad price!
As a boy I loved playing with my toy soldiers and wooden fort, Lego Minecraft fortress just updates this play to the 21st century child so I would recommend this product or any Lego Minecraft product.
