Someone ranked the most painful Lego pieces to step on (I’m glad I wasn’t the one doing the testing), and compiled the top-25 worst pieces to step on. Surprisingly, the small ones are the worst.
We’ve all been there. We were kids and had Lego, or our sibling had Lego, or our cousins or our own kids – somebody somewhere in our life. The toys get left out, small pieces, big pieces, whatever, and inevitably, we step on a piece. It always seemed to be sharp-end up, of course. I’ve actually had a few pieces cut my foot open before, but that’s another story. Luckily I grew up with carpet rather than hard wood floors, so that actually helped soften the damage, Anyway, the top-25 most painful Lego pieces to step on, ranked.
Also, a link back to this video from a couple days ago of the dad’s instructional video on how to prepare for parenthood. Maybe he did the research?
Click each piece for a picture. Here’s the top-25 most painful Lego pieces to step on.

Like said earlier, is seems like the smaller the piece, the higher the pain. Makes us want to wear shoes all the time. What’s the worst Lego injury you’ve ever received?
