  • Product Description

    Big bumps on front, small on back; Click to see all 12 colors|||Made in the USA,  ARK's Brick Stick Textured Chew Necklace provides a safe, wearable, discreet, 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.  Like all ARK sensory chews, ARK's Brick Stick™ comes in 3 color-coded toughness levels:

    • Standard - This is the softest level, recommended for mild chewers (those who do not chew through anything).
    • XT / Medium Firm - This is the middle level, which we call XT ("Xtra Tough").  It's firmer, but still fairly chewy, recommended for moderate chewers.
    • XXT / Very Firm - This is the toughest level, which we call XXT ("Xtra Xtra Tough").  It still has some “chewability” to it, but it’s fairly rigid / pretty firm.  No chew tool is indestructible, but this is usually the longest lasting level for avid chewers.

    Choose your option from the menu above. Each pendant is sold individually with its own breakaway necklace cord. Additional cords are also an optional add-on. Color hues may vary slightly.

    Made in the USA  Designed, manufactured, and assembled in the USA by ARK Therapeutic.  Medical grade, FDA compliant, NO lead, phthalates, PVC, BPA, or latex.

    Caution Caution: This product is not a toy.  The clasp and cord are not intended for chewing.  Contains small parts that may pose a choking hazard - direct supervision required.  Recommended for ages 5 years and up.  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.



    • 18 years ago, ARK's Grabber® was the first solution on the market specifically for children who needed a safe alternative to chewing on their hands, clothes, pencils, etc. We've since come out with dozens of chew options to meet a variety of sensory preferences, including textured, scented, extra tough, and more. This brick-shaped pendant is modeled after our textured chew tools that you've come to know and love. The size is based off of the handle of our Y-Chew, just slightly thicker. And the large bumps on the front face come from our Textured Grabber.
    • Each pendant measures approximately 2.5 inches long and 5/8 inch wide. Including the bumps, it measures just under .5 inch thick.
    • The long length means you can reach all the way to the back molar area where we do most of our chewing and where proprioceptive input to the jaw is needed most.
    • The tactile nubs in two different sizes provide varied oral sensory input.
    • The cord measures approximately 36 inches in length. If desired, you can shorten the cord by scooting the thread out of the clasp, retying the knot at a shorter length, and then trimming the excess thread.
    • Made in the USA! Designed, manufactured, and assembled in the USA by ARK Therapeutic.
    • Highly recommended for individuals who have Autism, sensory needs, anxiety, ADHD, etc.

    1. Wonderful for redirecting chewing behavior

      I found this to be a great product for redirecting chewing behavior. The child I work with was really drawn to the lego shape. He frequently puts unsafe items in his mouth to chew on, and he cannot easily be stopped, but redirecting him to chew on this worked wonderfully.

    2. Loved it in the beginning

      We have two of the lego brick sticks. The XT black stick and the XXT forest green stick. We loved them when they first arrived but now noticing that some of the smaller dots near the bottom have came off and also the ends of the stick seem to be "bowing" inward and it doesn't look as nice as when we first got them. We've had the black one about 3 1/2 months and the green one about a month now. If we do order again, I think it will be a different chewy and something without texture as I worry he is swallowing the small pieces on back.

    3. Great for my sensory seeking 3 yo

      My 3 yo son enjoys chewing on this while at school and at home. It's the perfect size to allow him to allow him to use his back molars and get the most sensory input. I do wish there was a way to clip it to his clothing. He takes it off and sets it down in random places.

    4. Loved it but...

      My son and I love this product. Not only did it allow him to get the oral stimulus that he needs from time to time, we stopped getting weird looks from people while her chewed on other products that looked like baby teething products. I had ordered the toughest one thinking that it would last longer. Unfortunately my son was able to bit off some of the little dots on the (lego like) brick.

    5. Ate away the little dots or circles

      My son loves this chew it is strong but the little dots or circles are wearing off and I'm wondering if he's actually ingesting them?! I like the size and the shape of the Lego chew just don't think we need the actual circles on it at least not for my son who is a serious chewer. I did buy the most durable one too.

    6. Exactly What We Needed

      We bought this for our two-year-old after he was diagnosed with SPD. It has been such a huge help. It has cut down on him biting himself and others, as well as chewing on his shirt. His developmental therapist even brought some chew sticks with her and he recognized them right away. I'm so glad we found these!

    7. Amazing Results!!!!!

      This product is a life changer. My son was having so many behavior issues in school, we noticed a change the first day of wearing this brick! I cannot believe the change in him! I highly reccomend this product to anyone who has a chewing or biting problem!!!!

    8. My son loves it

      My son likes this one the best....unfortunately, he likes this one the best. I bought the toughest I could and because he chews it so much, it is broken. It did last over a month...almost 2!

    9. Love it!

      This little lego like brick stick is durable and has sensory spots on front and back which help engage my son in chewing the stick instead of his fingers!!

    10. Fantastic!

      I love that there is an alternative for my son to stop biting his nails, especially with a theme he loves (lego).

    11. Brick Stick is a hit

      Both of my kids love their Brick Stick chew necklace.

    12. Both the bigger and smaller bumps were bitten off

      Worked well for a bit but had to be discarded and replaced with the smooth version because the bumps got chewed off!
      Purchased in XXT

    13. Awesome Love these

      We have bought 2 of these, he black and most recently the green. My son loved the black one so much and wore it out that we ended up getting the tougher one. It has kept him from. Chewing on his clothes and toys!! We also got the pencil toppers for school (he doesnt want to wear the necklace to school) and several other designs of the chew necklace but the "lego" one is his fav!!

    14. Excellent tool for classroom use

      The sensory demands of a first grade classroom are intense. These good looking chewy necklaces allow my son to get much needed input for regulation so that he can be successful at school. This tool is a lifesaver!

    15. Great for My Boyfriend

      My boyfriend has recently quit smoking and he's been chewing on things like plastic caps to cope with quitting. I got him this necklace in XXT and he loves it. It keeps him from chewing on weird things and hopefully it's taking away the urge to smoke.

    16. great product!

      We have two of these and they are amazing. My son has sensory processing disorder and bites his nails until they bleed and this has been SO helpful (as long as he keeps it on! :) ) He's five, and the other kids in his class think its really cool, since it's a lego, and it gives him plenty of sensory input without it being something he's embarrassed to have. He had one of the less firm necklaces and he was able to chew the bottom off, but we've had these for a few months now and they're still in good shape!

    17. Cheaper than new glasses !

      Our 7 y/o daughter has a concern with putting things in her mouth abs chewing. In the past this has included her brand new glasses, books, a tooth brush, etc. My wife and I both work in the schools, however she works with special needs children. This product is used in her school as a sensory device and works great. So we thought why not give it a shot at home ! Well guess what ... it works 100% great !! We love it, our daughter loves it ! We have taken the focus off of putting things into her mouth !! Thank You ...

    18. Great tool

      This is a great idea!! It has helped calm down my 11 yr old son with sensory and anxiety issues. My only complaint is the fact it squeaks when chewed on bringing attention to the kid :(

    19. Improving behavior immediately

      My son loves the chewelry! It gives him a socially-acceptable outlet for his insatiable chewing due to SPD. He wears the chewelry all day long, and after the first day of wearing and using chewelry, bedtimes became much calmer, and he had a much easier time going to sleep. He is better able to concentrate on fine motor activities while chewing. Between acquiring chewelry and noise canceling headphones, my son's life has been drastically improved, as his undesirable behaviors have melted away. We all feel a lot better!

      Specifically, I like that ARK is a family owned American company. I don't worry about what adulterants my son might be ingesting through his chewelry. The family is pleasant to work with, and I have gotten prompt replies from them as needed. Both the product and the service is highly recommended!

    20. Teeth Rescue

      My son is 15 with High Functioning Autism, Tourette's and Anxiety. He is a chewer. He will chew lego bricks if he can't find anything else to chew. This has been a teeth saver. He is an aggressive chewer, so we go for the strongest option. It helps his anxiety and has stopped the lego chewing all together.

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.
