21162 The Taiga Adventure is a Minecraft set that was released on January 2, 2020.


The taiga is a cold forested biome. There are three variants in the biome family, though there are also two other closely related families; snowy taigas and giant tree taigas. Taiga biomes are essentially a colder counterpart to the lush forest biomes. Only spruce trees may grow in taigas, compared to oak and birch trees in forests. Due to the structure of spruce trees, being more tall than wide, the foliage has an aqua Hue and is somewhat less dense than in forests, but still dense enough to possibly get players lost. The terrain is flatter than in forests, though still slightly hilly. Wolves spawn commonly in all taiga variants, making wolves plentiful in taigas. Rabbits additionally spawn in taigas, though are not often seen due to wolves chasing after them and killing them. Foxes and sweet berry bushes can also be found in taiga biomes. Villages occasionally generate within the taiga and are appropriately made of spruce wood. Due to the cold climate, rainfall changes to snowfall above layer 120 within taigas; however, this rarely happens within the normal taiga, as the terrain is not usually steep enough to reach the snowfall line.

Like forest, taigas are one of the most preferred biomes to start out in. The abundance of wood, mild terrain and useful passive mobs make this biome easy for players. Generated villages can also serve as a handy refuge and as a trading post should one be found. Taigas share the same dangers of forests, however; a player can get lost within the trees easily if they don't mark their trails, and the foliage can lead to obstructed vision, especially at night. This biome and its variants also generate as border of giant tree taiga biomes, except if generated next to snowy taiga. Taigas are commonly found next to mountains, plains and forest biomes, and much less commonly next to snowy taigas. Like forests and jungles, taigas also generate unique shallow lakes. Fish (mob) do not spawn in these lakes.


The set has 74 pieces which are used to make a small build, a few minifigures and buildable figures, and various accessories. The build has three 6 x 6 baseplates, two Sand Green and one Reddish Brown, which are connected in an L shape by the rest of the bricks, which are placed on top of the baseplates. There are multiple plates with knobs connecting the baseplates, and a special fire piece. The main part of the build is composed of various 2 x 4 bricks and 2 x 2 bricks in Reddish Brown, plates, tiles, tiles with knobs, and a TNT block in a vaguely hill-like structure. There are a few 2 x 2 plates with flowers inside. There is what appears to be a torched formed by a stud and a single 1 x 1 Bright Red stud on top.
