Graduate from soft to hard as a hierarchy to gradually build jaw strength - click to see all colors|||ARK's Y-Chew® and Y-Chew® XT sold together for a savings! The blue and yellow Y-Chews are soft and chewy - recommended for mild chewers and/or those with limited jaw strength / oral tone. The orange and turquoise Y-Chew XTs are firmer but still chewy - recommended for moderate and/or those who exert more jaw pressure.
Use this sampler pack to see which resiliency suits your needs. Or, start with the soft one and graduate to the harder one to gradually build oral strength. Both 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. For the toughest Y-Chew®, click here. Insider tip: encourage individuals to chew on all three extensions to more evenly distribute the chewing.
My daughter loves these! She will only use these so when I buy these, I always know they will be used! Jamie
I have not used these until recently and they are very toddler friendly with color and shape. Would like to have them offered more to a package.
Great design for young children to explore with their mouths.
My 5 month-old daughter loves the Y-chew. She has been using it for about a month and we don't go anywhere without it! It's easy for her to hold on to and effective in providing oral exploration even in the early stages! I also recommend the tri-chew!
What a great product! Each "leg" of the Y has a different size and texture and my son loves it. He's carried an ARK Grabber with him everywhere he goes for over a year, but as he's gotten older he seems to need a different kind of tool. The different sizes and textures on the Y-Chew (and the Tri-Chew, too!) seem to be just the change he needed. We don't go anywhere without our new Y-Chew!! I recommend it!
