Lego Is Finally Making Slippers to Protect Your Feet From Those Painful Little Bricks

But limited edition won't cut it

Every parent knows the searing pain of stepping on an errant Lego brick in the middle of the night. It might even be how your kids learned their first curse words. Luckily, Lego has heard our cries of pain and has teamed up with French ad agency Brand Station to make Lego-branded padded slippers so your feet will survive that bricking.

Lego injuries are a plight of our times, unique to our advanced civilization, but the underlying human truth is that it has always really hurt to step on tiny pointy things. In other words, this fulfills a big need in the world.

But get this: These fools think they're going to make only 1,500 pairs of these, and they'll be available only as a random distribution to those who make a Christmas wish list on the Lego France website. But now that the world has heard about it, they'd better start making a couple thousand (at least), because Lego enthusiasts are going to demand their own.

In fact, if I don't see these available for purchase at my nearby Legoland Discovery Center within the year, I will be seriously dissapointed. And for those of you who are now going to order your Christmas Legos through Lego France, bon chance!
