My son has struggled with anxiety and chewing his fingers and this has been great. We tried another brand and his mouth broke out with red bumps. We found this brand (Ark) to be the best bet.
Lots of tactile "toppings"; Click to see all 8 colors|||Om nom nom! ARK's Pizza Chew Necklace is a slice of cheesy sensory oral motor fun. Each "slice" measures 2" tall, 1.75" across the widest part, and (including the "toppings") just under 1/2" thick. It's a great option for those who prefer chewing with their pre-molars and/or front teeth (for more slender options that reach the back molars, click here). And the textured "toppings" provide extra sensory interest. Use the Pizza as a safe alternative to chewing on pencils, shirts, fingers, etc. and to help calm, focus, and self-regulate.
Like all other ARK chewelry, it's made in South Carolina, USA and is available in 3 color-coded toughness levels:
*Please note: because of its beefier shape, each level of the Pizza 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 middle XT level, you may want to "size down" a toughness level and order the Pizza in standard.
Choose your option from the menu above. Each pendant is sold individually with its own breakaway necklace cord. Additional spare cords (cords only) are available as an optional add-on via the pull-down menu above. Exact color hues may vary slightly. Each pendant measures about 2" tall, 1.75" at the widest part, just under 1/2" thick.
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.
