We've all done it.

We are wondering around in the dark for one reason or another and "AAAAAHHHHHH!!!!"

What hurts the most?

barbie shoes or lego blocks..it's a toss up..I think lego blocks might be slightly worse.

One time I stepped on a polly pocket...way back when they were really tiny..that hurt too

People go barefoot in the house??? That's dangerous! I always wear shoes or slippers.

I'm going with Legos... as that is what I most frequently step on here.

I wear shoes 100% of the time now.

Legos and Schliech (sp?) animals are my votes.

Legos hurt badly. The plastic they are made of is so hard.. especially if you step on them with your insole.

Since you allowed multiple options, I said toy knights/horses, trees and signs from train sets, and Lego.

I love Lego, but it's the absolute worst to step on.

Oh - and I didn't click other, becuase I forgot, but pipe cleaners. DD1 often trims off pipe cleaners, and then I step on the little bits sticking out of the carpet. It's only happened a couple times, but...OUCH!!!

I can't believe only one other person chose wooden blocks. Yeeeeouch! They are worse than toy cars, and certainly rival legos. Maybe we just have the extra-sharp-cornered kind of wooden block.

Oh...btdt. It hurts just reading that.

We're being really heavy on the picking up Lego right now, though. I don't want dd2 to eat any...

I have to say legos, and there is almost always that one that blends in and gets stepped on.
post #15 of 81
Legos are the worst, for sure. I did it just this morning and I swear my foot still has a dull ache as a result!
post #16 of 81
Legos or bionicles (which are made by Lego)- Those are what i always what i step on here.
post #17 of 81
freaking legos with their hard edges and sharp corners. Duplos are just as bad.
post #18 of 81
Legos are bad but Jacks are worse by far. Those points. Yeowch!

yes this. DH never stops talking about the wooden block that felled him one early morning.

I voted Lego, but in full disclosure, we don't actually have any Jacks, which I suspect might be worse. I've never ever stepped on a Jack in bare feet though, including when I was a child (Yes, I had Jacks as a child. Yes, I stepped on toys as a child including Legos many times, but never ever Jacks.)

I think that some toys (Legos, Playmobils, woodentrain sets, little cars) are more likely to be stepped on regularly than other toys. Often the reason is obvious, one is unlikely to step on a balloon b/c it will bounce harmlessly away a bike b/c it stays outside. I don't know why Jacks have eluded being stepped on.
