Learn Braille With The Swing Cell

Message: I am looking to help a friend with learning Braille. I am totally blind, and have known it all my life it seems, but my friend is having trouble recognizing the dots. My idea to assist him is to use a peg board to make letters and shapes, because I remember doing similar activities when I was in elementary school. Where might i be able to find something like this? I picture a light bright without the light. Any suggestions you have would be appreciated.
