Easy twist-on design; Click to see all 8 colors & 2 sizes|||Made in the USA, ARK's Brick Bracelet™ provides a safe, wearable, discreet, and cool solution for those who need to chew. It has a unique 'twist-on' style that makes it very easy to take on and off the wrist as needed for oral motor stim throughout the day. Because it's worn on the wrist, it's a particularly good option for those who can't wear necklaces and/or for those who chew on their sleeves. It can also be used as a sensory fidget (twist it, bend it, run your fingers over the tactile bumps, etc.), or even a mouthing tool for babies. Like all of our other chew tools, it comes in three different toughness levels:
Choose your options from the menu above. Each bracelet is sold and packaged individually. Color hues may vary slightly. Wear several at a time for cool color combinations and added calming weight to the wrists, and/or pair it with a Brick Stick neckace (sold separately) for a matching "chewelry" set.
Sizing: the small is recommended for a wrist circumference of under 5.5 inches, and the large for over 5.5 inches (approximately). However, this can vary depending on your fit preferences (whether you like to wear your bracelets looser or tighter). The bracelets can all flex, so the sizing is flexible.
Designed, manufactured, and assembled in the USA by ARK Therapeutic, each bracelet is medical grade, FDA compliant, and lead/phthalates/PVC/BPA/latex-free.
Caution: This product is not a toy. Recommended for ages 5-6 months and up through adults (no age limit) under adult supervision. Although these chew tools are sturdy and durable, no chew tool is indestructible. Wear/tear may be expected given the nature of the intended use. How long they last is typically equal to the amount and intensity of the chewing, as well as other variables (such as jaw strength, stress/anxiety levels, if other sensory strategies are in place, etc.). While for some people a chew tool will last forever, for others with heavy/aggressive oral needs, they may go through it very quickly. Please supervise at all times, regularly inspect the chew, and replace if necessary if the item shows signs of wear and tear. For the longest lasting chew tool overall, click here.
Small dimensions (approximately):
Large dimensions (approximately):
As a general rule, the small is good for those with a wrist circumference of 5.5" or smaller. And the large is good for those with a wrist circumference of 5.5" or larger.
Because of the design, both sizes have the ability to stretch if needed, so there is some flexibility in the sizing. Many individuals can wear both sizes depending on whether they prefer their bracelets to have a tighter or looser fit.
The bracelet itself is good, but the fact that it cannot be secured on the wrist makes it useless for my daughter. It constantly gets lost. Bev
I have a 3 1/2 yo son who chews on all his hard plastic sippy cups. He has beavered the tops all up. I like the idea of a bracelet vs necklace (we have the dinosaur necklace) because I don't mind if he wears it to bed. I measured his wrist and I thought the large would be appropriate...WARNING....the large fits me and my husband and is still loose. We love the toy, but unfortunately it is too big. I had ordered 2 because of course my 5 yo also wanted one...now to reorder would be an additional $25.00. I love the toy, but to spend that much money bracelets is a little much. Jennifer Hager
I purchased this product for my son and he loves it. The only reason I can't give it a 5 is because it tore within 3 weeks so as a first time buyer I suggest you just purchase the XXT if your child is an avid chewer. But I do advise you to purchase this it's very good. Chynita
My son really enjoys the brick bracelet. He's a picker so this is the perfect thing to help him get through his day! Thank you ARK Michelle
Another great tool that has helped my son with focus during quiet time and anxiety. Has held up well so far but gets less use than the chew necklace. One thing I did notice is the constant removal off/on of it slightly stretches the bracelet so it can more easily fall off my sons wrist. Not sure there is a solution for that but Im glad I bought the smaller size for my 5 year old otherwise it would have been overly big once stretched.
Thanks again for a wonderful product! Again something else I'm recommending to others! Melinda
Great perfect for my 7 year old with ADHD and chews on everything. Wish they were sold in sets of three. My son has already lost two. Kimi
What a wonderful discovery Mary
My son has ADHD, Sensory, OCD, and Anxiety. He is always putting something in his mouth along with picking at himself. If there is any kind of sore to pick at he doesnt stop picking at it. His face and ears are always bloody from picking. I bought this bracelet to give him something else to pick at and bite. It has been great! His wounds are actually healing and he has been using it instead of himself as a "scratching post" he said. Melanie
We purchased two bracelets in teal and lime green (extra tough) for our kids. Our 4-year-old immediately said, "Cool! LEGO chewy!" She loves it. The 2-year-old sometimes complains that the bumps rub his lips / inside of mouth too much. He still uses it but I think he would prefer the smooth option better. We have several chewing products, including necklaces; these get used a lot. I initially worried these would be too tough for them, but I think my kids prefer the toughness of these bracelets over their other chewies. Mom
Our son loves the brick textured necklace but it has one major issue: the cord. Our son doesn't chew on the cord; however, he does take the necklace off, open the clasp, and swing it around by the cord in a whirling blue streak of doom. Just when I think I'm out of reach, he loses his grip on the cord and the necklace becomes a projectile... Usually aimed right for me. I appreciate how the necklace helps him but I can only get beaned so many times before the necklace has to be put away.
The bracelet looked clunky at first. I thought our son wouldn't want to wear it because it is thick and stiff. And I was partially right - he isn't often interested in wearing it but that's because he is constantly chewing it! He loves to "clip" the bracelet around his cheek, leaving half the bracelet in his mouth and half outside. The additional sensory input is exceptionally calming for him. He is a hard chewer and with this he can really get a solid grip and not worry about the bracelet falling out of his mouth the way the necklace does. On quieter moments he will just explore the brick texture with his tongue or lift and lower the bracelet along the inside and outside of his cheek. Doing so does leave a small, light redness on his cheek but it goes away quickly.
This bracelet has given him a way to remain more calm and focused in school. He is able to stand at his desk and listen, rather than wandering the room or stretching our across his desk. Thank you so much for creating this product - it is making a huge difference in our son's life! Mae
MY SON LOVES THIS AND THAT ITS LEGO IS TO COOL TO HIM!! HE USES IT TO HELP HIM SIT AND WATCH MOVIES IT GIVES HIM THE SENSORY INPUT HE NEEDS THANKS
The teal extra tough bracelet was great for my nearly 12 year old son. He loved it. Then he lost it at school. :-( He wants another. It did help with focus. I need to save to buy him a necklace. Maybe that will stay with him longer than 5 days. Those were 5 very happy days though... Laurel
This is such a surprisingly elegant & charming design! The sensory studs that make it so fun to chew also work amazingly well at being surprisingly stunning on the design, and they have a gender neutral appeal, they look like 'tough guy' studs as much as they look like elegant 'ladylike' stone settings, which is super awesome to me personally as both a design dork and an androgynous person! I'd be shocked that this was your first shot at a bracelet if I wasn't so endlessly impressed by everything you've all been creating for so long! I seriously have been wearing these everywhere (so many compliments, especially when they notice the matching brick-stick!) Charley

ARK chew tools come in 3 color-coded toughness levels:
Usually we recommend going with the softest/standard level by default. Unless someone chews through or causes damage to anything else they chew on (chews through pencils, chews holes in shirts, etc.), in which case the XT level would be longer lasting.
If someone does chew through things, it’s possible they may need the toughest XXT level eventually. XXT is super firm, though, so we don't always recommend getting it right off the bat (some people find it uncomfortable chewing on something that firm).
So XXT is usually best either for people who have chewed through the XT level already, and/or for anyone who already likes chewing on very hard items - things like legos, hard plastic toys, wooden items, etc.
Heads up: Designs that are wider and "beefier" will feel tougher than designs that are more slender in the same toughness level. For example, the Dino-Bite in XT will feel tougher than the Krypto-Bite in XT.×
Probe Tip - This is the most versatile & popular tip attachment. It's bumpy on one side and striated on the other side for different levels of sensory input (the bumpy side provides more input than the striated side).
Mini Tip - This is a smaller version of the Probe Tip, designed for smaller mouths (about 2.5 years and under). This age recommendation is not a hard-and-fast rule though - we've seen younger kids use the Probe Tip and older individuals use the Mini Tip.
Preefer Tip - This tip attachment is rounded with ridges all along the circumference for when a "rolling" action is desired for a different kind of sensory input. Roll it over the lips, across the tongue, and inside the cheeks.
Fine Tip - This tip narrows down to a fine point, which makes it perfect for pinpointing very specific areas in the mouth.
Bite-n-Chew Tip - These tips are rounded and chewable, for practicing biting & chewing skills. The "extra long" versions are about an inch longer and a little skinnier, to make it easier to reach the back molars. The textured version has bumps for extra sensory input.
Bite Tube Tip - These tips are similar to the Bite-n-Chew Tip, but with a hollow center so that you can put puréed foods (applesauce, yogurt, etc.) inside the tip for functional biting & chewing practice. Once you bite down on the tip, you get 'rewarded' with a taste of food.
Spoon Tip - Great for feeding therapy and mealtimes, these attachments turn the Z-Vibe into a vibrating spoon! The smooth, gentle vibration can help "wake up" the mouth and decrease aversions. The textured version has bumps on the bottom of the spoon bowl to help stimulate the tongue and lower lip, and to help encourage the transition from puréed to more solid foods. The hard Spoon Tip is rigid, like a regular spoon. The soft Spoon Tip is flexible (still firm enough to hold food, but flexible enough to be gentle on the teeth if someone bites down on the spoon.
Tongue Tip - This tip can be used as a traditional tongue scraper to help establish good oral care. It can also be used to help establish the concept of tongue lateralization and elevation (hold the Tongue Tip vertically in front of the mouth and ask the individual to put the tip of their tongue inside the hole, then guide the tongue from side to side or up and down). You can also place the Tongue Tip flat on top of the tongue to provide input to a large surface area of the tongue (this tip has the largest "footprint" surface-area-wise).
Popette Tip - This tip attachment is an adaptor that lets you use lollipops with the Z-Vibe. Just twist the Popette Tip into the Z-Vibe handle, then press a lollipop into the Popette Tip. Lollipops are a fun way to get kids interested in sensory oral motor exercises.
Brush Tips - The soft version has gentle bristles for gum massage; the hard version has firmer bristles closer to that of a traditional toothbrush. These can be used to help get orally sensitive individuals more comfortable with oral care, so that they can eventually use regular toothbrushes, be more comfortable going to the dentist, etc.
Pencil - This attachment turns your Z-Vibe into a vibrating pencil! The vibration of the Z-Vibe is very smooth, so it doesn't create squiggly lines. Instead, it can help increase focus by providing more sensory input and awareness to the hand.
Pen - This attachment turns your Z-Vibe into a vibrating pen.
Crayon - And this attachment turns your Z-Vibe into a vibrating crayon.
Brick Tip - This tip attachment has large bumps on one side and small bumps on the other side for lots of varying sensory input while biting & chewing. It comes in 3 toughness levels for mild to moderate to avid chewing.×
