Happy mining miners! Get your mine on with this super safe handy foam pickaxe from ThinkGeek. Keep forgetting things? Why not try these sticky note cubes..handy to help keep track of mining, or remind you of mining if you miss it. 

ThinkGeek and Mojang's Minecraft collaboration continues, first this pretty amazing set of t-shirts, now a scale version of the games pickaxe. Designed to go along the sticky note cube, the 'axe won't chop through much but makes a decent desktop ornament. 

You could have a go at real-life mining with it if you fancied, but unfortunately reality dictates that digging is not done in blocks. Expect real amounts of blood, sweat and tears required if you are hunting for that elusive obsidian.

Head over to ThinkGeek's Minecraft page to check out all their merchandise. Personally we like the fridge magnets, which unlike the t-shirt or giant foam pickaxe, don't reveal too much about your inner geek.

For those yet familiar with the gaming addiction that Minecraft can create, why not check out our top five videos, might help you get your noggin round things a bit easier.

Fancy a bit of Minecraft? Or you not sure what it is yet.

The baby of the Lint team, Hunter has been a tech fan since he bought his first MiniDisc..and what a waste of money that was. He began writing about electronics at the age of 16 and hasn't stopped since. Nowadays he fulfils his mobile phone and gaming obsession whilst attempting to distract people from his bizarre name. Regular meetings with the Gladiators crew see Hunter often returning to work battered and bruised. Considers himself a music obsessive, was once the most highly decorated scout in the country. Fan of trousers.
