Hi Amy! I love to check out your designs and noticed your question about Minecraft. My son Ashton is 9 and he LOVES this game. It's not really violent... more of a building type game than a fighting game. It's very creative and I'd say it's for all ages. There are zombies but they are more of a joke than anything. I think it's really a great game especially compared to all of the other gory games out there!
