Growing up in Iowa and on the later-20th century side of child labor laws, I never had to secure my family’s well-being by working 16-hour shifts down at the mine. This makes playing with LEGO Minecraft sets — like The Mine (21118) — much less traumatic than it is for my unlucky cousin Irving, who used to wince whenever I’d joke about getting coal in my stocking.

Another bonus to not working in the mines? I don’t owe my soul to the company store, and I was able to buy my LEGO Minecraft Set 21118: The Mine here, instead!
