Toy maker Lego Group and the Lego Foundation will launch a Braille version of its bricks in 20 countries and across 11 languages over the next six months, the company said. Lego Braille Bricks are now available in seven countries, including the U.S., Denmark, France and Brazil. Lego is seeking suggestions from teachers in order to continue to expand the Braille playset concept, with a Facebook Inc. (FB) group, Lego Braille Bricks Community, created for the purpose. Each kit will continue more than 300 bricks. Lego Braille Bricks joins Uno Braille ( ), which was launched in 2019 through a partnership between Uno parent Mattel Inc. (MAT) and the National Federation for the Blind.
