In complete contrast to The Ender Dragon set 21117 which we reviewed yesterday, The First Night is based on your ideal first night in the Minecraft game. This set includes a great little shelter which is hinged with removeable roof, and contains everything your Steve needs to survive the night and progress into the game.
Complete with a bed, chest, pick axe, oven and crafting table, it's more like the house my children had after 3 weeks of playing Minecraft - they even have their own pig!
Recommended for builders aged 8+, and with 408 pieces, I think this set represents a good value LEGO set. It's especially good for play value and while your younger builder may need a little help getting the footings in the right place or building the structure of the shelter with pillars, I think they'll very much enjoy playing with it afterwards.
This is a set that captures the real essence of Minecraft, the moments where you are still scrambling to learn how the game works and you think that the terrifying Creeper or Zombie will get you at any minute. It's familiar to anyone who's played Minecraft, and indeed to anyone who has played survival games.
LEGO even include ideas pages in the instruction booklet for you to make alternative models with your The First Night set, and there is a huge array of information and ideas for rebuilding online.
