The longest pendant shape with a cool tactile handle|||ARK's Bite Saber™ Sensory Chewelry is a safe and super cool solution for anyone who needs to chew. At 4 inches long and just under half an inch in diameter at the tip, it’s just the right size to reach the back molars where chewing is needed the most. Use it to provide calming proprioceptive input to the jaw, and/or as a safe alternative to chewing on fingers, shirt collars, sleeves, pencils, etc. The Bite Saber™ features a tactile handle with a smooth "blade" for biting/chewing. And like all ARK chews, it comes in three color-coded toughness levels:
Choose your option from the menu above. Each pendant is sold individually with its own adjustable breakaway necklace cord. Color hues may vary slightly.
Designed, manufactured, and assembled in the USA by ARK Therapeutic. Medical grade, FDA compliant, NO lead, phthalates, PVC, BPA, or latex.
Caution: This product is not a toy. The clasp and cord are not intended for chewing. Contains small parts that may pose a choking hazard - direct supervision required. Recommended for ages 5 years and up. Although these chew tools are sturdy and durable, no chew tool is indestructible. Wear/tear may be expected given the nature of the intended use. How long they last is typically equal to the amount and intensity of the chewing, as well as other variables (such as jaw strength, stress/anxiety levels, if other sensory strategies are in place, etc.). While for some people a chew tool will last forever, for others with heavy/aggressive oral needs, they may go through it very quickly. Please supervise at all times and replace if necessary if the item shows signs of wear and tear. For the longest lasting chew tool overall, click here.
Works great for autistic teen!
Purchased in XXT T.H
This is the second Saber chew I've bought. My son, age 7, chews on everything! He's gone from chewing on everything to just this. I'm so grateful for this find. This is a wonderful product! Amanda Grant
This is the 2nd chewy necklace that we've bought from ARK- I've been happy with both for their durability and styles (lego & this light sabor). My 7 year old likes the different colors but also complains that she wants a different color than what the strength she needs it offered in. The downside of this sabor is the length for us- It functions very well but she complains that it's too long on the necklace, meaning it hangs too low for her comfort. So she will use it at home or in the car while she doesn't have the necklace on her- she'll just hold it. At school she doesn't like to wear it because it hangs too low and it hits on her desk all the time- and if I were to shorten the length of the cord anymore than it is she wouldn't be able to flip it over to her mouth when she was wearing it. It would be awesome if there was an option for the cord to go through the middle and have it hang horizontal as well.
A+ on the style, All the kids at school thinks it's really cool and ask her where she got it from. :)
She loves Star Wars and she was the one to pick this necklace out and it has the both smooth and textured surface that she is able to get her fix from, she calls it her light savor.... and I agree with the savor. It has saved us from more wet or stretched out shirts, chewed toys, fingers constantly in her mouth.... E.A.
I bought this for my brother who has a tendency to bite his lip whenever he needs stimulation. He says he likes it. It's smooth and I believe he's getting into the habit of sucking on it, or playing with it when we primarily only want him using it as a replacement behavior. Overtime, I think it will be really beneficial for him. Adela
My son loves his chewy light saber. And as soon as I see his OT I will be asking her about the butter grip pencil holder you guys feature in the brochure that was sent with my order. I have high hopes that that will help him with his handwriting which is an ongoing struggle for him. Chaya
These are great for my autistic son that has sensory issues. My only complaint would be I wish you could get more colors in the XXT. He has to have the toughest ones but they only come in blue or green. He wants other colors but I have to tell him he can't have those. Tesla Link
My son was chewing his fingers and also his nails were down to the cuticles. Since having this he is able to chew to calm himself if he is feeling anxious and focusing better at school. We are already looking to get him another in XXT. Vivian Parker
My little girl was about 6.5 years old when I noticed she started chewing on inappropriate things around the house, like her hair, toys that have a little give in the material, and even a charging cord for a phone.
After a few months of discouraging her, I decided to replace her developing bad habit with an appropriate item to chew, and we purchased this one from ARK.
We've had it for a couple weeks now, and the other day when we got home, she immediately announced she wanted her chew toy, found it, and happily started chewing.
I have not discovered her chewing on anything inappropriate since we found it.
She rates it a 10/10, and I'm very happy with our decision, too. Tonya
Just starting down this path to helping my child with sensory processing disorder. He had been chewing on anything and everything, relentlessly. He is very happy and satisfied using the bite saber. It's not only cool, but it satisfies his sensory needs. After using this product for two weeks, I can say it has changed our bedtime routine significantly. I do not need to give constant reminders to not chew on his covers, as his chewing needs have been satisfied throughout the day. He has fallen asleep easily and peaceably, without melatonin (our go-to for endless jitters, wiggles, and scratching), each night since having the bite saber. I am also quite happy to have purchased this product from a nice family right here in the United States. Honestly, I couldn't be more satisfied. Carey Smith
I have bought other shaped chews for my daughter to help get her off the pacifier...but sadly I have had no luck. That is, until I bought her your light saber chewy. This is the first one that has had tremendous success. So much, in fact, that I will have to buy a stronger one because she split the red light saber one clean up the middle. I am beyond thrilled that she chewed on it THAT much. Love you guys & your products! Samantha Lowe
The colors and feel are good. The necklace does open very easily and I don't like that. It could be easy to loose from this and it gets dirty from dropping. I bought two of the XXT for my kids and they both found them too hard to enjoy. They chew on fingernails, crush plastic bottle caps, toys, and other random stuff, so the XXT seemed the way to go. They both asked for something more chewy and haven't used these much. When they did try it they were sucking in it. These were our first chew substitutes. Now I need to pay more money to try others to see if it will help. These are expensive when not effective for the individual. Worth it if it works. Rachel
I like the saber better than the other designs. I worry about my son choking and this saber is long enough that he can't get it all in his mouth (as he can with other designs) so I worry a lot less. Toughness level is good. Very happy with this! Leah
ARK does it again! I tried many other chewy options before we found ARK. No other came close to ARK. My now 6year old son disliked the texture of every chewy I purchased, until we found ARK and purchased our first product, a ARK GRABBER in "soft". We soon moved on to Chewlery, which allows him the use of his hands, while still being able to chew. This is vital, as he is now in kindergarten, and needs use of his hands. He is now on the middle strength-XT, as his jaw has strengthened with age and he was chewing through the "soft" too quickly. He wore the "Bite Saber" on the first day of school. It was a huge hit with the boys. They all want a necklace like his. Every time my son goes to his OT/Speech therapy center wearing a new ARK chewy the therapists/parent all ask where I got it. Thank you for making a high quality product that has helped my son tremendously. Amy Anderson
My son loves these. We purchased the blue and the green (XXT) and they are holding up very well so far. We had previously ordered the bricks and these seem to be lasting a little longer. My son is 11 and loves Star Wars so I can get him to wear this without a fight. Kendra
My son gets the dark green one. He loves it, but it wears out in about a month. Gets expensive, but then autism is expensive. Michele
My son loves his "Bite Saber" as he calls it! It saves him from chewing on his glasses! Thx for a great product! Heidi
My son is a avid chewer and the extra-strong chewie is the first he has not destructed. The hole for the string to go through is also far enough down that he can't bite the chewie off the string. I don't how many otherwise good chewie's we have gone through because it was stringed too high. Our new go-to. Caleb
These sabers are such a big help. I have two children who have anxiety and tics, they happen to chew on their shirts. So now the shirts are saved !!!! Happy mom here!! Beatriz Hernandez
My son was so happy when I told him I got him a light saber chewelry necklace. He was relieved to have it, "So I don't have to chew on my shirts anymore". I wish I had found this for him sooner! Jennifer C.
My eldest felt this reduces his anxiety which he generally chews on everything else (paper, grass, nails, etc.). Now he uses this exclusively and I'm beginning to see some "down-time" where he stopped chewing.... Very useful. Sean
