I cannot believe Christmas is only a week away. If you’re still looking for a great gift for that special kid in your life, be sure to check out Minecraft products at Best Buy. By combining critical thinking skills with imagination in a fun interactive world, Minecraft is a game that’s sure to delight kids of all ages.

My kids & I first played some of the Minecraft games at a friend’s house and we all had so much fun. It was a blast building all those amazing structures (houses, castles, etc.) and my daughters really enjoyed the creative nature of the game. We soon bought our own Minecraft products so we can play at home.

If you’ve never played Minecraft, you may be wondering: “What exactly is Minecraft?” Well, in Minecraft, you place blocks and experience fun, engaging adventures. Here are some elements I really love about this unique game:

  • The worlds are randomly generated and you can build awesome structures, from basic houses to elaborate castles.
  • You can play in Creative Mode and experience the freedom & fun of unlimited resources.
  • You can play in Survival Mode and work hard building weapons & armor to defend against mobs.
  • You can create your own unique world using your imagination. Just don’t forget to build a shelter to stay safe from monsters once it becomes dark! You can do this alone or with friends.


Best Buy offers a wide variety of Minecraft products, including an Xbox One S console bundle, more Minecraft games and Minecraft toys & collectibles. As a mom of two young kids, I really love that the games are family-friendly and perfect for kids. And if you know someone who is already a fan of the game, the toys and collectibles are amazing gifts to add to the collection!

This game is a fabulous way to encourage kids to explore their creativity while still having a blast building worlds. Speaking from personal experience, I can say that this is a game that’s fun for people of all ages!
