A sensory slam dunk; Click to see all 11 colors|||ARK’s Basketball Chew Necklace is a sensory slam dunk for sports fans! This rounded disc pendant measures about 1.75" in diameter and half an inch at the thickest part (in the center of the pendant) - perfect for those who prefer chewing with their pre-molars and/or front teeth (for more slender options that reach the back molars, click here). Use this oral sensory solution as a safe alternative to chewing on pencils, shirts, fingers, etc. and to help calm, focus, and self-regulate. Like all other ARK chewelry, the Basketball is made in South Carolina, USA. This shape is available in 2 color-coded toughness levels:
- XT / Medium Firm - XT stands for "Xtra Tough." It's fairly firm but still with some chewiness to it, recommended for mild to moderate chewers.
- XXT / Very Firm - XXT stands for "Xtra Xtra Tough." It's very firm and fairly rigid. No chew tool is indestructible, but this is usually the longest lasting level for avid chewers.
Choose your option from the menu above. Each pendant is sold individually with its own breakaway necklace cord. Additional spare cords are available as an optional add-on via the pull-down menu above. Exact color hues may vary slightly. Each pendant measures about 1.75" in diameter and ½ an inch at the thickest part (in the very center).
*Please note: because this is one of our wider shapes, each level of the Basketball may feel tougher than the same toughness level in one of our more slender shapes. So for example, if you like the Krypto-Bite™ in the toughest XXT level, you could probably "size down" to XT in the Basketball here.
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, regularly inspect the chew, and replace if necessary if the item shows signs of wear and tear. For the longest lasting chew tool overall, click here.
- 18 years ago, our Grabber® was the first solution on the market specifically for children who needed a safe alternative to chewing on their hands, clothes, pencils, etc. ARK's Basketball is the same concept, only shaped into a fun and fashionable design for biting, chewing, and oral motor input.
- Each pendant measures about 1.75" in diameter and half an inch at the thickest part.
- The cord measures approximately 36 inches in length. If desired, you can shorten the cord by scooting the thread out of the clasp, retying the knot at a shorter length, and then trimming the excess thread.
