Product Description

BrailleBuzz is an instructional tool for young braille learners ages two to five. It encourages practice with braille characters and phonics, similar to a variety of audio-based toys that teach print writing.

BrailleBuzz resembles a cartoon bumblebee, encouraging little ones with audio feedback. A friendly recorded human voice and fun sounds are paired with a Perkins-style braille keyboard, designed with little hands in mind.

Three Modes of Play
– Phonics Mode: fun sound and letter associations are made.
– Keyboard Mode: all key combinations are announced with dot numbers.
– Letters Mode: dot number announcement reinforces the relationship between reading letters and writing on the keyboard.

Requires 2 AA batteries (not included).
