Lego has plans afoot

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - NEWS -

ANY par­ent who has bought a Lego set for their child will know the nasty discomfort of step­ping on an aban­doned plas­tic brick in bare feet in the mid­dle of the night.

And the Dan­ish com­pany must be aware of the swear­ing and curses howled the world over, be­cause it has in­vented an “an­tiLego slip­per” to pro­tect against such night-time hor­rors. Look­ing like large flip­pers and cush­ioned and in­su­lated against the sharp cor­ners of Lego bricks, 1 500 pairs of the red and yel­low slip­pers have been made in co­op­er­a­tion with the toy firm’s French ad­ver­tis­ing com­pany, Brand Sta­tion.

You can reg­is­ter to win one of the pairs on the Lego France web­site. Or make your own with a cou­ple of lay­ers of bub­ble wrap tucked in­side your bed socks.

Another wheeze is to fine your chil­dren R1 for ev­ery Lego brick not put away in the toy box be­fore lights out.

You might find it more ef­fec­tive than any spe­cial slip­pers. – Daily Mail
