ARK's Krypto-Bite™ Chewable TUBE Necklace
ARK’s Krypto-Bite™ Chewable Tube Necklace is similar in shape to the Gem shaped pendant with one main difference - instead of hanging vertically, it hangs horizontally. In other words, the cord goes through the whole length of the pendant instead of just through the top.
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 - this particular shape of pendant is not recommended for avid to aggressive chewing. The longest lasting chewelry necklace is typically the original Krypto-Bite™ GEM pendant in XXT toughness.
Each Kyrpto Bite™ Pendant measures 2 1/4 inches (5.5cm) long and 1/2" (1.3cm) 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 or Magenta - 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 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 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.
