LEGO Launches Braille Bricks for Visually Impaired Kids

LEGO is opening up a whole new world for blind and visually impaired kids with the release of a new brick collection.

After a successful pilot program launched in 2019, the toymaker is rolling out LEGO Braille Bricks.

What makes these different?

They're made so that the studs on top reflect individual letters and numbers in the Braille alphabet, but can also still click together with the original bricks.

LEGO says all children should have equal opportunity to be creative and are launching the first wave of Braille Bricks in six languages, including English, French, and German.

The company is also distributing toolkits for free to "select institutions, schools and services catering to the education of children with visual impairment" as they roll out around the world in the coming months.
