Overall rating

You have a few different figures here, including the hero Alex, the blowfish, and a zombie character.

So there are a few enemies present and the goal is to get to the treasure, which is located at the back here.

The nice thing about this set is that it has a kind of mechanic that allows you to release the treasure from the coral reef so that your character can grab the treasure. There is also a nice little treasure inside, which is a cool fish for the Minecraft character to take home. So a lot happens in such a small set.

There are also a few other small parts, such as the puffer fish and another small part. So it's pretty cool. Of course the zombie must be defeated in this small set.

Putting this set together is actually quite easy. There is a small rubber band to shoot the treasure chest.

This goes in and can then be shot through the rubber band by turning this knob. That's pretty cool.

The set is suitable for ages seven and up, and I think this is mainly because of the zombie theme. I believe all Minecraft Lego sets are ages eight and up, so this set is pretty easy to put together. If your child is four years old, he or she should be able to do this. It has 92 pieces to build, which is quite a lot for such a small set, but there are also many very small parts, such as the puffer fish and the small stones.

It measures about three inches high, four inches wide, and three and a half inches deep, so it's a cute little set to give to kids.
