An expansion of the LEGO Braille Bricks range

This language expansion brings the LEGO Braille Bricks range to five references. The new boxes in German, Italian and Spanish offer the same content as the existing versions, respecting the linguistic particularities of each language in terms of characters and punctuation. Thus, the new references are in line with the products already on the market, both from the point of view of inventory and public price:

  • Discover Braille - French Alphabet LEGO 40655 (287 pieces - 89.99 €)
  • Discover Braille - English Alphabet LEGO 40656 (287 pieces - 89.99 €)

Making the game accessible to everyone

In order to promote the learning of Braille and to bring the whole family together around a game, various activities are offered to help visually impaired children learn how to orient, fix and stack the bricks inspired by popular games such as Rock, Paper, Scissors.

As part of its commitment to making play more inclusive , the LEGO Group has partnered with the free Be My Eyes mobile app, aimed at people who are blind or partially sighted. This collaboration allows the Customer Engagement team to handle requests for LEGO Braille bricks and all other LEGO products and services. From 1 September, the Be My Eyes app will be ready to provide valuable support.

For those looking to provide a fun building experience for visually impaired children learning Braille, the LEGO Discover Braille – French Alphabet (40655) set is an ideal option.

In addition to building the set on the included building plates, stimulating play ideas for kids, developmental skills and instructions on orienting, attaching and stacking the bricks are available on the LEGO website.
