Chew StixxMay 14, 2010
By J. Smethursttodd
I had hard time getting these for my Autistic son as I live in England and no one will post them to England. So had to ask an American relation to post to us. Worth it though they have helped no end as my child no longer eats pencils and rubbers at school. They are very durable and I would recomend them to anyone who's child is Autistic. PLEASE POST STRAIGHT TO UK! So many parents could use these here.

chew stixxNov 23, 2010
Bought these for my daughter since she has a chewing habit and can't use gum at school. They came quickly and my daughter was stoked to try them. As soon as she did try one though, she put them aside. She tells me they are too hard & she doesn't like how they feel. I would have ranked it higher but my 10yr old special daughter just didn't like them. They may work for another child, you can never tell until you try. If you buy this product and they don't like it see if the special ed teacher at school want to try it. Can always turn into jewelry since they are sturdy enough.

Does it job but didn't work for us.Apr 30, 2011
I bought these for my 6 year old son who constantly puts things in his mouth, especially when nervous. He is in a regular school and other than speech and oral issues, he is right where he should be in other areas. Gum would probably be the best option but not allowed at his school. Initially these worked well and seemed durable but then once the other kids started noticing him "chewing on his eraser" or making comments like "what are you chewing on?!!" he became embarrased to use them. He also chewed so hard that he would chew them off the top of his pencil and occasionally drop them on the floor and put them back in his mouth. The chews ended up not being a very sanitary or aesthetic option for him. Although they did not work for us, they seem durable and strong to withstand the toughest and roughest jaw.
Great for keeping my son's attention and minimizing embarrassmentJun 06, 2012

"New Mom of 2"
My son's kindergarten teacher turned me onto these. One day she wrote to me and asked if she minded if she bought these for my son. Appearantly, he was given a brand new pencil and within an hour, he was nearly in tears at her desk because he had chewed through the brand new silver shiney pencil she had given to him. He was very embarassed. I ordered these and a tactile torpedo and a chewy T. All three were fabulous for helping him stay focused and not be a distraction or be embarassed in class. I am so grateful to his teacher for helping me find these and I am planning on buying another set to get him ready for 1st grade.
good for kids needing sensory inputSep 03, 2013
I got these for my 9 year old son because he was chewing his erasers off of his pencils and then chewing the metal on the end of the pencil and cutting himself. His teacher was willing to let him chew gum, which helped, but I got these to try, thinking it would be less of a distraction. He told me that they really did help him be able to sit still and do his work better, and he didn't need to ask the teacher for gum. He really thought they were helpful and was excited to find something that helped him focus better. He has some sensory seeking behaviors and chewing definitely helps him to focus on his tasks.
