Did you play with Lego when you were a kid? It was the favorite toy for many kids out there, and it still years. The company has been on the market since 1932, and Lego are still popular today. Lego is definitely fun to play with, and there actually been research (probably) that prove that it can stimulate creativity.
But in Lego’s 84-year-old history, one thing has remained the same: the pain caused by a Lego when you step on it barefoot. Stepping on a Lego block is something similar to being shot in the foot by a knife soaked in wasp venom. No, I’m not exaggerating. And it always takes you by surprise.
Parents reading this know what I’m talking about. I know it drove my mom insane whenever I would forget to pick up all the Lego bricks after I was done playing with them. She would often step on them. That’s the loudest I ever heard her scream. Well, I guess this is an inherent danger of allowing a kid to live under your roof.
Later on in life, I got to experience the same sensations, and I understood her reaction was justified. It’s crazy how such a small piece of plastic can cause so much pain.
Well, if you’re a parent and your careless children tend to leave Lego bricks all over the house, you’ll be happy to know there’s a solution to this problem that doesn’t involve giving your kid away (I’m joking. Maybe).
Introducing the Anti-LEGO slippers! They are parents’ secret weapon to protecting themselves from the domestic minefields created by the pieces strewn all over the carpet.
The slippers are a result of collaboration between LEGO and French advertising agency Brand Station. It took them long enough, though.
