Product DescriptionThe BrailleBox is an intricately carved teak board with 12 wooden pegs (each peg represents one of the dots in a regular jumbo Braille cell) and 12 holes which allow one to create jumbo braille characters allowing for an easy learning experience for children and adults. Simply insert the pegs into the holes to create 2 separate Braille characters to feel and learn.
The board and pegs tuck neatly into wooden storage drawer. The BrailleBox, itself, is less than 2" thick and the size of a 3 inch by 5 inch index card. This product greatly enhances the process of learning Braille.
Here is an innovative new way to introduce yourself, a friend, or your students to the basics of Braille with the BrailleBox!Lightweight and portable, you can bring this set with you and practice your Braille anywhere.
With your BrailleBox, you'll be able to try your hand at creating and recognizing Braille letters, numbers, and contractions. What's even better is that each character made on this learning board is really a "jumbo Braille" cell. So anyone who hasn't yet developed the sensitivity in the fingertips to make out the tiny dots in a regular Braille cell will find it easy to identify any character made on the BrailleBox.
This is a truly invaluable Braille learning tool for anyone (Blind or sighted, child or adult). This is an incredibly useful Braille teaching device.
