  • Product Description

    A cool and wearable necklace version of the Textured Grabber with 2 different textures|||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:

    • soft (magenta, red, or dark blue) - recommended for mild chewers
    • XT (lime green, teal, black, or hot pink) - XT stands for "Xtra Tough," recommended for moderate chewers
    • XXT (royal blue, forest green, lavender, or orange) - XXT stands for "Xtra Xtra Tough," recommended 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 and replace if necessary if the item shows signs of wear and tear.  For the longest lasting chew tool overall, click here.

     

     

    Features
    • 15 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. 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!

    2. 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!!

    3. Fantastic!

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

    4. Brick Stick is a hit

      Both of my kids love their Brick Stick chew necklace.

    5. 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

    6. 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!!

    7. 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!

    8. 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.

    9. 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!

    10. 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 ...

    11. 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 :(

    12. 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!

    13. 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.

    14. My son is a chewier when he's anxious, mad, or tired.

      We bought this Lego chewier and he loves it. It gives him something to help him feel safe. Instead of using his hands when he's mad, he chews or squeezes the Lego instead. I have been wanting to get him another one. I see you now have dinosaur ones. My son is dinosaurs all day long. He also has speech Apraxia along with his sensory processing. Here this five year old is who has a hard time saying simple things like cup and he tries to say the dinosaur names. He would absolutely love it!

    15. Brick Stick Necklace xl and xxl

      Love your products, they have helped my son a TON with some anxiety at school. I’ve recommended them to many who are going to place orders also!
      My one complaint is that they seem to breakdown pretty quickly for the price (1-2 weeks seems pretty quick). It would be nice if you put the hole for the necklace in the middle so both ends of the stick could be more easily utilized, more bang for the buck! It would still hang adequately as it rests against the chest of the wearer.

      It would also be nice to be able to easily remove the necklace daily so I could wash the rubber piece without getting soap/water on they nylon part.


      ***Note from ARK: Hey folks! How long a chew tool lasts can really vary depending on the amount and intensity of the chewing (plus which shape/toughness you get, one's anxiety/stress levels, etc.). For some people they last forever, for others with heavier oral sensory needs they don't. It’s kind of like a pair of sneakers - if you run several miles a day your shoes will wear out much faster than if you just walk in them once a week. If you get shoes with thin soles they'll wear out faster than shoes with thicker soles.

      To that end, for avid chewing the Y-Chew XXT is typically the longest lasting option since it has 3 different extensions to chew on. It’s not the most discreet option for everyone, so what some people do is use the Y-Chew at home and one of our necklaces on-the-go. That way when used in rotation like that, they both overall last longer together.

      In addition to a chew tool, other calming/sensory strategies can also be really important. We have some ideas on that here: http://www.arktherapeutic.com/blog/post/2423

      Last but not least, if you'd like to remove the pendant from the cord:
      1. Unclasp the necklace
      2. Push the cord through the female end of the clasp (you can do it with either end but it's easier with the female)
      3. Untie the knot and then you can remove the clasp and pendant
      4. To reassemble, you'll just put the pendant and clasp back on, and re-tie the knot :)

    16. Best chewelry we've tried

      And we've tried them ALL. My 9 year old son is proud to wear this itrm and it holds up well to his vigorous chewing. Many a chewed shirt collar (and the ensuing rash from wet fabric against skin) has been avoided. Many thanks!

    17. Works as described!!

      Keeps my son from biting his nails and gives him something to chew on when he is stressed other than pencils and toys

    18. Life Saver

      My 9 year old son love this. He is a diagnoised ocd hoarder, so he picks up anything and everythig. He was at a point where he was sticking old rusty nails, staples, paper clips, any and all toys, his clothes, pretty much everything in his mouth. Now he only chews on his necklace!!! It has put this parents mind at ease knowing its safe and won't hurt him.

    19. Better than everything else going into grinder

      This tough chew toy keeps my 13 year old from tearing the arms off his and his brother's toys and putting them in his mouth. It's also safer than the metal tops to pencils he would chew on. My only complaint is the saliva sucking noise every few chews. Although that is probably less gross than drooling. Too bad it's impractical to coat everything in the chewer's environment with super nasty tasting stuff to encourage them from mouthing everything.

    20. Excellent

      Great for my 5 yr old chewer and he loves that it looks like a lego
