ARK's Smiley Face Chew Necklace
When you're smiling, when you're smiling, the whole world smiles with you! This double-sided disc pendant features a big grin smilie on one side (indented) and a cool sunglasses smiley on the other side (raised) for different tactile and visual interest.
This type of chewelry can be used as an oral fidget toy or as a tool to help calm, soothe and self regulate a child's thoughts during times of stress. It is a safe alternative to biting fingernails, knuckles and chewing shirts, pencils and pens. It can help to improve focus during homework and classroom tasks. It is particulary favoured by children with Autism, Aspergers, ADHD or those who need a high level of sensory input.
Each Smiley Face pendant measures approximately 2 inches (5cm) in diameter and is about 1/3" (0.7cm) thick. 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 this is a wider chew, ARK recommend that you may want to "size down" a toughness level if you are used to using a more slender chew shape. If you're used to the Krypto-Bite™ in XT strength, for example, you may want to try the Standard level in the Smiley Face.
A note about choosing the correct colour for your child
Red, Magenta, Dark Blue or Yellow - 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 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, 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.
