My kid LOVES playing Minecraft in the real world–he’s built a crafting table from a cardboard box and we’ve decorated his room with cool Minecraft gear. He STILL wearing his diamond armor from Halloween! So you can guess I was pretty jazzed to hear about the Minecraft Mine chest–a new subscription service from Mojang. Monthly goodies from Minecraft? I think you know where I’m heading next!
(Psst–this post contains affiliate links. If you happen to buy your kid a Mine Chest, I’ll get a small commission to help support my site. It won’t cost you a thing. Just FYI.)
Like other monthly subscription services, the Minecraft Mine Chest will be sent to your door once a month. It promises to be packed full of goodies your kid is going to love! The first chest ships in May, so I haven’t even seen one yet to review properly! I’ll let you guys know if I can get my hands on one early for a sneak peek!
I’ve been told each chest will have an exclusive Minecraft T-shirt (not available anywhere else), an exclusive collectors item, a sticker, a toy and more! It also says each chest will have an “exclusive DIY Crafting Recipe – this is something cool that YOU can craft.” Now THAT sounds interesting–is it recipe to craft in real life, or in game? I’ll let you know as soon as I find out!
(Update: I found out the “recipe” will be a real life activity.)
If you go ahead and order NOW and you’ll get at special limited edition BETA version of the chest.
The Minecraft Mine Chest is only available in the U.S., but they’ll be adding international deliveries soon. The chests are $29.99, plus shipping. This sounds like a pretty good deal, since it has a shirt AND toy plus other stuff inside. I’ll think we’ll get our money’s worth here. Plus the box–a replica of a Minecraft chest, looks like it can be reused to store toys.
I’m signing up Mitch right now. (No, they didn’t give me one for free…I’m buying it too.) Sign up is pretty easy. They’ll ask for measurements so you’ll get the correct size shirt–which you can change as your child grows. I can certainly imagine keeping this for a while–each chest is promised to be different! And don’t worry, the shirts are available in adult sizes as well as girly cut Lady’s shirt, so fans of all ages can enjoy a Mine Chest.
So what are you waiting for? Sign up now and get that beta chest!
