Chew - Brick Pencil Topper, by Ark
Chewing on finger nails, pencils or pens is a very effective way to help self-calm, self-regulate, and focus, so these chewy pencil covers are a perfect pairing for homework, note-taking, and more. Made in the USA, ARK's Brick Stick™ Chewable Pencil Topper is a perfect solution. Chewing can be a. As an added bonus, they also provide extra weight to the pencil, which provides increased hand awareness and promotes proper pencil positioning. Each topper is solid on one end for chewing, hollow on the opposite end to conveniently fit over standard #2 pencils, and textured all around for extra tactile input. The front side features large bumps, with small bumps on the back side for varied sensory input. They come in 3 color-coded toughness levels: Soft (magenta or red) - recommended for Mild chewers XT (lime green or teal or black) - XT stands for "Xtra Tough," recommended for Moderate chewers XXT (blue or purple) - XXT stands for "Xtra Xtra Tough," recommended for more Aggressive chewers HOW TO CHOOSE RESISTANCE: We always recommend starting with the standard level, unless the person chews through / causes damage to things they currently chew on (chews holes in shirts, chews through pencils, etc.). In that case the tougher XT (“Extra Tough”) option will likely hold up to that better. XXT (“Extra Extra Tough”) is usually the longest lasting level for avid chewing. However, XXT is fairly rigid, so we only recommend starting off with XXT if you know you / your child chews likes chewing on pretty tough items, or can chew through pretty tough items (like legos, hard plastic toys, wood, etc.). Designed, manufactured, and assembled in the USA by ARK Therapeutic, these pendants are constructed out of medical grade, FDA compliant materials that contain NO lead, phthalates, PVC, BPA, or latex. **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. Not recommended for children under 5 years. Although these chew tools are made out of sturdy, medical grade materials, they are not indestructible. Some individuals (particularly those with heavy oral needs and aggressive biting/chewing) may be able to damage the tools. How long they last may depend on the oral sensory needs of the child as well as other variables (anxiety, stress, etc.). Please supervise at all times and replace if necessary when the item shows signs of wear and tear. Each pendant is sold individually with its own breakaway necklace cord.
