ARK's Krypto-Bite™ Chewable GEM Necklace
Please note that some colours have changed toughness level – please read the full description for further information.
This chewable gem necklace provides a safe, wearable, and discreet solution for kids and adults who need to chew. For boys, it's a cool-factor Krypto-Bite™ and for girls, it's a stylish gem pendant!
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 particularly favoured by children with Autism, Asperger’s, ADHD or those who need a high level of sensory input.
Each Krypto-Bite™ Gem Pendant measures 3 inches long (7.5cm) and 1/2" (1.3cm) thick. The long length of the chewing area allows it to reach to the back molar teeth where most of the chewing takes place. 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, Magenta, Dark Blue, Light Grey, Yellow, Translucent Pink or Translucent Green - 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, Black, Translucent, Dark Red or Translucent Blue - 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, Orange, Lavender 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 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.
