The best way for any child to learn to read is through constant exposure to the written language… and through play! Sighted children play with alphabet blocks or simple word puzzles when they are young to help develop a foundation for literacy, and blind children have the same opportunities with toys in braille.

Of course you can add braille to almost any toy. All you need is a good braille labeler and a little space on the toy and you’re good to go! But it’s also exciting to find toys specifically designed for kids who are learning (or are already proficient at) braille. Below you’ll find everything from alphabet blocks to raised line coloring pages and activity books to puzzles to card and board games… and so much more! And it’s all in braille ready for your child to play and learn.
