Do you find it calming when you chew on your pencil? Or maybe it helps you to concentrate when you have a chew on your pen during class or meetings? Chewing is a common behaviour that helps many of us to regulate our sensory systems. This can assist with managing anxiety and stress, staying calm, remaining focused, improving concentration and more.
The main problem is that pens and pencils can wear out quickly and aren't really made for chewing. That's where ARK's Brick Stick® Chewable Pencil Toppers come in. Specially designed with this in mind and available in a range of strengths. They are a perfect solution for most chewing needs. They're also a subtle sensory tool as they fit nicely on to your pen or pencil. 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 and hollow on the other end, making them suitable for use with standard #2 pencils. The toppers are also textured for extra tactile input. The front side features large bumps, while the back side has small bumps for varied sensory input. Seriously, Is there anything they didn't think of when designing these?!
Like all of our ARK chewy range, they come in 3 colour-coded toughness levels:
Standard - softest level, recommended for mild chewers (those who do not chew through anything)
XT / Medium Firm - middle level, which we call XT ("Xtra Tough"). It's firmer, but still fairly chewy, recommended for moderate chewers
XXT / Very Firm - 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.
