The standard Lego bricks have 4 or 6 dots aligned in square or rectangle and embossed on its top surface, Lego braille bricks have braille-shaped dots embossed on its surface. The braille represents the color, number or letter that is printed on the top surface. This allows people with vision impairment and blindness not only building figure, but also communicate, play games or even making stories using the blocks!
