ARK's Chew Tag Chewable Necklace
A popular unisex Chewelry design for children and adults
This Chew Necklace is similar in design to the Super Star Necklace, but both of the the pendants are thinner and smooth. This makes it particularly ideal for those who chew with their pre-molars and/or front teeth. However, it best suits mild to moderate chewers - aggresive chewers would be better choosing a differnt pendant, such an an ARK Dino-Bite™ Necklace.
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.
The Chew Tags Necklace features two identical chewable pendants on a breakaway cord necklace. Each Chew Tag pendant measures about 2 inches (5cm) long, 1 1/4" (3cm) wide and 1/3" (0.7cm) thick, and each face is smooth. It's a great option for those who prefer to chew with their pre-molars and/or front teeth. 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.
Note - because of its thinner, slimmer shape, this is not the longest lasting chew necklace for heavy chewers. It is not recommended for aggressive chewing. For most individuals, ARK's Dino-Bite™ would be a longer lasting choice.
A note about choosing the correct colour for your child
Red, Magenta, Light Grey or Dark Blue - 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, Hot Pink or Black - 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, Dark Grey, Orange or Lavender - 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 for avid chewers.
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.
