Why We Love Ark's Chewable Stick Figure 

ARK's Buddy Bite™ Chewable Stick Figure is a fun and friendly chew tool designed to meet your child's chewing needs. This unique design is perfect for kids who find comfort in chewing on non-food items like clothes, pencils or their hands and figures. It's a safe, satisfying option to help manage chewing habits and support sensory processing needs. 

Easy to hold and fun to use, this chewable stick figure offers a creative solution for sensory seekers. It's ideal for keeping hands occupied and mouths busy, helping to increase concentration and reduce anxiety.

ARK’s Buddy Bite is designed so its extensions are long enough to reach the back molars, where we usually chew the most, for proprioceptive input to the masseter muscle. The loops are firmer and provide more resistance for chewing on both sides of the mouth at the same time.

Great for bringing along to school, days out, or just for use around the house, a chewable stick figure offers a discreet way to satisfy chewing needs. It's a fun alternative to traditional chew aids, supporting your child in a playful, comforting way.

ARK's Buddy Bite is available in 3 colour-coded toughness levels:

  • Standard (Red) - This is the softest level for mild chewers. 
  • XT / Medium Firm (Lime Green) - These are firmer but fairly chewy. Recommended for moderate chewers.
  • XXT / Very Firm (Royal Blue) - These are the most firm and provide the most resistance for those with oral needs. It still has some “chewability” to it. No chew tool is indestructible, but these are sturdy and durable. 

As this is a larger chew, you may want to "size down" a toughness level. For example, if you're used to the Grabber in XT, you may want the standard level in the Buddy Bite™.

How to Use a Chewable Stick Figure 

Always supervise your child when using ARK's Buddy Bite. Make sure to wash them frequently with warm water and mild soap. After washing, rinse them well and dry them completely before giving them back to your child. 

These oral motor chew tool are very strong and lasting, but they are not indestructible. You should regularly inspect the chew and replace the chewable stick figure if it shows signs of wear and tear. They will typically last depending on the amount and intensity of chewing, as well as jaw strength, stress and anxiety levels and other sensory strategies.
