Pamela Robinson, founder, 40+ Double Dutch Club:

“It takes you back to childhood. Back to a time when there’s no stress, no bills, no issues when you’re a kid jumping rope. So many times, when you reach 40, you are so busy taking care of everybody else — your kids, your husband, your parents — that you don’t take time to take care of yourself. So all of these women now are being intentional about self-care.”

Bringing Braille Fun Home: LEGO® Braille Bricks on Sale for the First Time

Martine Abel-Williamson, President, World Blind Union commented for LEGO®:

For blind and partially sighted children, and adults for that matter, it makes all the difference if they can share their journey of learning braille with the people they love the most.
