The toy giant is partnering with the American Printing House for the Blind to dispense the bright-colored bricks with studs that correspond with numbers and letters in the braille alphabet to allow students with sight and those who are blind to play together, according to an APH news release.

The bricks are developed by the LEGO Foundation and are being offered to school districts for free. They are designed to be used in educational instruction led by a teacher.

In each country where the product is launched, LEGO partners with a group to distribute the bricks and toolkits.

"This partner will handle both distribution of the toolkits and support localization and training of the teaching concept presented on this website," a LEGO news release said.

The Louisville-Ky.,-based APH is responsible for distributing the toys to students in the United States.

The bricks are designed to inspire kids who are visually impaired "as it allows them to develop a variety of life skills, ensuring they experience intellectual freedom, independence and equal access to education and work," the group said.
