To solve this parenting dilemma, the Denmark-based toy company has teamed up with French advertising agency Brand Station to create special slippers that'll make painfully stepping on LEGO bricks history.
The special slippers have extra padding to protect parents from profanity-inducing pain. According to the French blog Piwee, the slippers are "super comfortable, they take the shape and colors of the iconic brand." It's also interchangeable between right and left feet, so it's so easy to slip on.
Promoting the slippers, the French ad agency posted on Facebook a video showing how they made the branded padded slippers and captioned it(translated to English): "Because your kids love #LEGO... but what they love above all is to share their passion with the family and everyone in the house... This year we have designed for you, dear parents, the ultimate gift for Christmas #LEGO slippers padded insole that will allow you to walk around the house at night... without any worries!"
The not-so-good news is that Brand station produced only 1,500 pairs. You can only get one by filling out a Christmas wish list form on the LEGO French website. Better pray that Santa's elves will make more of it so it can reach us here in Asia.
