Lego's Braille Bricks Are Now Available for Anyone to Buy



Lego's braille bricks, initially available only to organizations focused on educating children with blindness or low vision, are now available for public purchase through the company's website. Created to help kids aged 6 and up learn braille in a fun way, the "Play with Braille" set includes 287 multi-colored bricks. Each brick's studs correspond to braille numbers and letters, with the printed version also displayed. The bricks are compatible with other Lego sets. The move to public availability comes after positive feedback from families and educators since the product's 2020 launch. Martine Abel-Williamson, president of the World Blind Union, emphasized the importance of inclusive learning tools like these for blind and partially sighted individuals.
