Minecraft may not look like much to outsiders thanks to its simplistic, blocky graphics, but it’s hard to overstate the beloved sandbox game’s popularity. Ranked the best-selling video game of all time, it’s sold over 238 million copies across PC, mobile, and console platforms—a success built on its boundless capacity for creativity.

Within the world of Minecraft, you can choose to have just about any experience you’d like, depending on game mode. This may mean battling computer-generated mobs, wandering aimlessly, or building your own world using a dynamically generated map. This open-ended approach to gaming has inspired a huge fandom and plenty of IRL toys and accessories that bring the most memorable features of Minecraft to life in 3D.
