Anyone that has ever spent even a modicum of time in a house full of LEGOs knows that eventually, no matter how careful you are and no matter how much you insist on cleaning up, you will eventually step on one and the pain will be far greater than a tiny piece of plastic should be capable of producing. Then you’ll do it a bunch more times and start to question the point of living.
Which is why it makes sense that LEGO itself is now trying to help you avoid the worst part about owning their product, with special, extra-padded LEGO slippers. (Don’t worry, they aren’t made of LEGOs.)
The company is working with Brand Station, a French advertising agency, to create 1,500 pairs of them. The good news is that you won’t have to be rich to get a pair or anything, but you will have to be lucky.
Anyone that fills out a Christmas wish list on the French LEGO site will be entered into a random drawing to win a pair. So I guess now I have to learn how to type “the Ghostbusters firehouse LEGO set” in French.
As a proud slipper wearer, these look like something I would wear. I like that you can slide into them without having to use your hands. I wear slippers because I want convenience, not a workout.
Besides LEGOs, what are some other things you’d be happy not to step on ever again? Tell us in the comments below.
