Shovel Anim
All 5 types of Shovels



Used to:

Dig loose blocks (dirt, etc)



Shovels are Tools in Minecraft Pocket Edition. They are able to dig up Dirt, Grass Blocks, Sand, Red Sand, Gravel, MyceliumPodzol, Clay Blocks, and Snow Blocks faster than any other tool.



  • Since Update 0.9.0, there is a glitch where a Stone Shovel will occasionally have the digging speed of a Diamond Shovel.
  • As of Update 0.11.0, Wooden Shovels are also used as paddles to craft Boats.
  • Using a shovel is the only way to obtain Snowballs.
    • To obtain Snowballs, the Player must tap or dig Top Snow with a Shovel.
  • Only Grass Blocks can be tapped with a shovel to make Grass Paths; this will not work on plain dirt.
  • The Player can Enchant a shovel with Silk Touch to obtain unobtainable blocks such as Grass Block, Mycelium, and Podzol.
  • The Shovel is the cheapest tool to craft in terms of tiered materials since only one material is needed.
