A version of the popular Krpypto-Bite that hangs horizontally instead|||ARK’s Krypto-Bite™ Chewable Tube Necklace is very similar to its popular gem-shaped cousin with one main difference: instead of hanging vertically, it hangs horizontally. In other words, the string goes through the whole pendant instead of just through the top. Use this prism-shaped chew pendant as a safe, discreet, and stylish solution for anyone who needs to chew. It's a great "chewelry" (chewable jewelry) oral sensory solution for both boys and girls, kids and adults to help calm, focus, and self-regulate. Like all other ARK chewelry, it comes in 3 color-coded toughness levels:
Choose your option from the menu above. Each pendant is sold individually with its own breakaway necklace cord. Or, you can also buy more than one pendant and create your own custom beaded chew necklace (like the fourth picture above, for example). Color hues may vary slightly. Each pendant measures about 2.2 inches wide and just under half an inch in diameter.
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. Please note: this particular shape is not recommended for avid to aggressive chewing. The longest lasting chewelry necklace is typically the original Krypto-Bite in XXT. For the longest lasting chew tool overall, click here.
My 8-YO likes to chew on anything: his shirt, stuffed animals, whatever's around. We've tried many, many, MANY different chew necklaces, and the XXT line from Ark are the only ones that stand up to his constant, aggressive chewing. I like this model in particular because he likes to bend the chewies or shove them all into his mouth so he can chew with both sides of his mouth at once, and these tube-shaped ones stand up to that with little to no wear and tear.
Note from ARK: I'm so glad it's been working for you guys! As a heads up to anyone reading this - usually our Dino-Bite or Super Star necklaces are the longest lasting necklace shape for aggressive chewing, with the Y-Chew XXT being the overall longest lasting chew. The Krypto-Bite Tube is one of our smallest chews, so in most cases it doesn't last as long as the other shapes with avid chewing. Meredith
My son likes to chew the front of his shirts while he reads, does homework, etc. A lot of the fronts of his tees are misshapen and in bad shape because of this habit. I went looking for something to help him with his need to chew and found this site and this wonderful product.
We cut the cord to the right length for him -- fits right under the neckband of his tees -- and he now chews on tube instead. I got him two different toughness levels to try out and he prefers the soft. The product is holding up well to his chewing and his new tees are not chewed up! Liz P-H
I opted to shorten the cord on this product so it was right beneath his collar.
He's able to pull it up enough to chew when he needs to and its discrete enough to hide under his shirt and when he needs to chew.
Love that ARK is US made! Stephanie
We purchased two different options for our son - this one wasn't a winner because he didn't like how the chewie was situated as he likes to use his back teeth. Texture was fine, cord was a bit long for him so I tied it off on the side. Hannah
My son has ADHD and Sensory Processing Disorder. He has always chewed on his Left index finger. He absolutely loves this. It is just perfect. We have to get the XXT and it is very durable Cathy
