Did you know that 19 million children worldwide are vision impaired?

Of this number, 1.4 million children have irreversible blindness. The LEGO Foundation, whose mission is to build a future where learning through play empowers children to become creative and lifelong learners, just announced a new product called LEGO Braille Bricks!

These Braille customized LEGO kits will help blind and visually impaired kids learn Braille in a playful and engaging way! How awesome is that?!

Each customized LEGO Braille brick will be molded to match letters, numbers, and select math symbols from the Braille alphabet. Plus, each brick will include a printed letter or character to allow sighted teachers and parents to work right alongside their kiddos!

The LEGO Braille kits will include 250 Braille Bricks in five different colors, along with ideas for teaching and interactive games.

The braille kits are currently being tested in multiple languages (including English), with an expected final launch date in 2020.

And, we saved the best for last – LEGO Corporation plans to offer these LEGO Braille Brick Kits FREE to select institutions serving visually impaired students! We love that!

    I have a visually impaired 2 1/2 yr old and this is exciting! It is so hard to find toys for disabled kids, especially ones that don’t cost a fortune. Somehow you slap the words Special Needs on something and the prices are crazy. I hope these are affordable and accessible to those of us who would benefit from them.
