Ark's Arrowhead Chewable Necklace
ARK’s Arrowhead Chew Necklace is a stylish shape - ideal for all of those Scouts, Guides and budding archaeologists out there! This is one of ARK's slimmer pendants, and each face is smooth in texture
You can use this chewelry as an oral aid or fidget toy to help calm, soothe and self-regulate thoughts during times of anxiety and stress - the act of chewing on a safe toy can focus minds during homework and other activities. It is particulary favoured by children with Autism, Aspergers, ADHD or those who need a high level of sensory input.
Please note - because of its thin and pointed shape, Arrowhead is not the longest lasting chew necklace for heavy or aggressive chewers. For most individuals, ARK recommends Dino-Bite™ as a longer lasting choice
Each Arrowhead pendant measures 2 1/4 inches (6cm) long, just over 1 1/2 inches (4cm) across the widest part and 1/4 inch (0.7cm) thick. The breakaway cord is 36 inches (91cm) long but can be shortened by scooting the thread out of the clasp, retying the knot at a shorter length, and then trimming the excess thread. The pendant is available in three colour-coded toughness levels.
A note about choosing the correct colour for your child
Red, Dark Blue or Light Grey - Standard - This is the softest level, recommended for mild chewers (those who do not generally chew through anything). It is also suitable for individuals with low oral tone, or those with limited jaw strength
Lime Green, Teal, Black or Hot Pink - Medium XT - This is the middle level, which is called XT ("Xtra Tough"). It's firmer, but still fairly chewy, recommended for moderate chewers
Royal Blue, Forest Green or Dark Grey - Very Firm XXT - This is the toughest level, which is called 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.
Note - This product is not a toy. The clasp and cord are not intended for chewing. Although these chew tools are sturdy and durable, no chew tool is indestructible. Wear and tear may be expected given the nature of the intended use. While for some people a chew tool will last forever, for others with heavy/aggressive oral needs, they may go through it very quickly. This product contains small parts that may pose a choking hazard - recommended for ages 5 years and upwards. Please supervise at all times, regularly inspect the chew, and replace if necessary if the item starts to show signs of wear and tear.
