The Lego Braille Bricks will be fully compatible with existing Lego toys, but are moulded with studs that match with Braille letters and numbers, with the aim of helping visually impaired children learn to read while playing.

The bricks are designed to be inclusive, so feature a printed letter or character, allowing parents, teachers and fellow students who are sighted to be able to interact as well.

Lego Braille Bricks are currently being tested in Danish, Norwegian, English and Portuguese at a number of institutions including schools, but the full kit is expected to launch in 2020.
