Lego the toy company Is taking their bricks to another level

Alright, admit it you have 100’s of them stashed away somewhere, in the attic,  storable bins, and even toy boxes. Nearly every child on Earth loves playing with Legos – even kids who are blind or visually impaired.  That’s why the company is rolling out a new set of “Braille Bricks” just for them.

Each Braille Brick will have studs matching the numbers and letters in the Braille alphabet.  They will also feature a printed letter or number so teachers and family members can learn along with the child. The best part?  ‘Braille Bricks’ will be fully compatible with other Lego bricks.  The 250-piece set will launch sometime in 2020, and select schools will be given a set for free.
