A worldwide phenomenon that isn’t going anywhere anytime soon, Minecraft is a huge world that lets kids and adults unleash their creative sides. It encourages players to build amazing structures, collaborate with others, and research what resources will give them the edge in defeating horror-movie style monsters. If you can imagine it, you can do it, and it’s no surprise that kids want to have toys, clothing, and more to proudly proclaim their love of the popular game.

With familiar designs and an emphasis on game familiar geometry, this 8 piece set includes a tablecloth, two types of napkins, and two styles of plates.
