Lego Brick Sorting Vacuum

Lego Made a Gag Product For April Fools' — and Parents Are Pissed It Doesn't Already Exist

Lego is a beloved toy for most families — it fosters kids' imagination, promotes creative thinking, and encourages endless hours of independent play. But the brand's latest product "launch" felt like a tiny Lego brick to the bottom of the foot: in a well-timed April Fools' Day prank on Sunday, the company announced the VacuSort — a "revolutionary brick-sorting vacuum" that is not, in fact, "coming soon in 2018."

Turns out, the sleek-looking gadget — which touted an ability to sort bricks by color and shape and also separate out dust — was all just a funny gag that most sleep-deprived parents didn't get as they were preoccupied with negotiating tantrum-laden Easter egg hunts that morning. Lego has no plans to manufacture the five-speed vacuum.
