Lego has teamed up with a French branding company to 'invent' some slippers to save parents from one of the nastier pains associated with raising children: the moment you step on a tiny lego brick.

Not content with merely advising parents to wear slippers, Brand Station and Lego have made a special Lego-branded slipper with an extra thick sole.

They say "will enable you to walk in the house in the middle of the night without any worries".
