Braille LEGO / Educational toy

Braille LEGO
Braille LEGO

This is Braille LEGO, combining Braille letter (raised letter for visually impaired) and LEGO. Although it looks like the defective LEGO, which is missing some dots, actually more stories hide in its shape. Each unique combination of blank and dot means a certain alphabet in Braille letter. While making simple shapes or sentences with this, they can learn Braille Letter easily with more fun. Also they can send a message to their friends or family without complicated tools. Braille LEGO has hopeful messages that there are meaningful things that cannot be seen by eyes and missing something doesn't means it is inferior -it can be even better.
