Instead of using a braille writer to create bumps on paper that spell out words, kids with a set of Braille Bricks can spell them out on a baseplate, which also means they can easily make corrections if they’ve made a spelling mistake. And the Braille Bricks can be stacked and assembled to build other objects, so they double as a genuine toy.

    Everyone knows that playing while teaching is the best way to teach kids, when they see the opportunity of learning as a game, then it rises their motivation to research and get better at the subject. Legos are fun, period. No matter what age you are, legos are one of the first GAMES that you play when you’re a kid. This is probably one of the best ideas I’ve seen in a while, and it would be beautiful if they start incorporating this method into schools, because thinking about all kids, blind or not, playing and learning the alphabet is beautiful.
    What I LOVE the most about this idea is that it makes it accesible for anyone to teach a kid braille. Said this, I can’t wait until this idea gets viral.
