Rice Krispies Treats has partnered with the National Federation of the Blind to create the first-ever accessible ‘Love Notes’ in the form of Braille stickers and re-recordable audio boxes so parents and family members can share messages of love and encouragement with children who are blind or low-vision.

Kellogg is adding a new inclusive feature on its Rice Krispies Treats. The food manufacturing company is launching “Love Note” Braille stickers and recordable audio boxes for its Rice Krispies Treats so children with vision impairment can get messages from their families. Buzz60’s Lindsey Granger explains:

Kellogg’s is making a free audio box and braille stickers available to families to help them send positive messages to visually impaired children.

Available starting Tuesday from Rice Krispies Treats’ website, the audio box can allow a family member to record a 10-second message that plays immediately after a child opens up the box.

The message itself can be changed up to 1,000 times, which Kellogg’s says should last the length of the school year.

Along with the box are a set of white, heart-shaped braille stickers — named Love Notes — that can also be used to send a positive message to a blind family member.
