Try all 6 for a savings with this sampler pack|||All of ARK's Y-Chews sold together for a savings! This pack includes:
2 Y-Chews (light blue and yellow) - soft and chewy, recommended for mild chewers and/or those with limited jaw strength / oral tone
2 Y-Chew XTs (orange and turquoise) - firmer and "Xtra Tough," recommended for moderate chewers and/or those who exert more jaw pressure
2 Y-Chew XXTs (red and royal blue) - super firm and "Xtra Xtra Tough," recommended for avid chewers and/or those who prefer to chew on very hard items
Use this sampler pack to see which toughness levels suit your needs. Or, start with the soft one and graduate to the harder one to gradually build oral strength. All of these oral motor chew tools exercise the lips, tongue, cheeks, and especially the jaw, allowing the mouth to learn and grow strong through oral exploration. They can also be used:
Made in the USA by ARK Therapeutic. Medical grade, FDA compliant, NO lead, phthalates, PVC, BPA, or latex.
Caution: This product is not a toy. 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. Insider tip: encourage individuals to chew on all three extensions to more evenly distribute the chewing.
Each child I have introduced the Y-Chew to has taken to it immediately. It has worked as a great way to introduce textures to kids when the Y-chew is dipped in a puree.
I have a now three year old daughter with downs syndrome. She is like having a little puppy in the house chewing on everything - literally! We've tried the P's and Q's, even the T type chewy tubes. Although these were a good start, Veronica absolutely loves the Y chewy combo. I was hesitant to purchase a pack being new but am glad we did. The yellow is a little too flexible for her - I can see her manipulating it in an unsafe way, but the others are great! I highly recommend this for your child with or without sensory issues. Chewing is a major part of Veronica's oral sensory need. Also, we have the Z-vibe and it's seems these tools are closest to that instrument. Again, a great choice. Best of luck!
