Lego’s line of bricks that is designed for visually impaired kids and is coded with braille is now available for purchase. Lego worked with organizations for the blind to create the toys, which have been donated to schools for the visually impaired since 2020. The bricks are a tool to help visually impaired children learn braille, which aids in developing spelling, reading, and writing skills. The braille Legos have helped kids learn the touch-based alphabet and allow them to play with their non-visually impaired peers. Lego says the braille bricks are a step the company is taking to make the brand more inclusive and that more products are in the works.
