LEGO-Style Braille Bricks Help Blind Children Learn To Read

Co-founded by the Dorina Nowill Foundation For The Blind in collaboration with the Lew’Lara\TBWA agency, Braille Bricks look like LEGO blocks, but are intended to help the visually impaired learn to read (and have fun doing it). The bricks are also a great way to teach seeing kids Braille and foster more inclusion and play for everyone.

In other words, it’s awesome and watching the video below will give you the feels.

Right now, the Dorina Nowill Foundation For The Blind has made about 300 sets for their students, but the design is distributed under Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 4.0 International license, meaning that it is free to share or adapt for any purpose.

Here’s hoping that LEGO gets wind of this and decides to take this concept to the next level.
