LEGO Braille

An inclusive approach to learning through play for visually impaired children

Article image

LEGO has launched Braille building bricks printed with letters and numbers from the braille alphabet in an aim to help blind and partially sighted children to learn to read as they play. The new bricks will be moulded with the same number of studs used for individual letters and numbers in the Braille alphabet, while remaining fully compatible with the LEGO System in Play, allowing sighted teachers, students and family members to interact on equal terms. Presented in April 2019 at the Sustainable Brands Conference in Paris, the final Braille Bricks collection will launch officially in 2020 and will be distributed for free to select institutions.
