Made in the USA, ARK's Brick Stick® Textured Chew Necklace provides a safe, wearable, discrete, and cool solution for those who need to chew. Use this "chewelry" as an oral fidget (or even hand fidget) to help calm, soothe, and self-regulate during times of stress, to better focus during homework and other activities, for sensory oral motor input, and/or as a safe alternative to chewing/biting on fingers, knuckles, shirts, pencils, etc. The long shape means you can reach all the way to the back molars for adequate chewing, and two different textures are built-in for varied tactile input: large bumps on one side and small bumps on the other.
ARK's Brick Stick® comes in 3 color-coded toughness levels:
Standard = Soft (very chewy), recommended for mild chewing only
XT = Medium (firmer, but still chewy), for mild to moderate chewing
XXT = Toughest (the most firm), recommended for those who like to chew on firm / fairly rigid items. This is also the longest lasting level for avid chewing.
Each pendant is sold individually with its own breakaway necklace cord
