This really helped "wake up" our son's mouth and also helped him with wanting to bring things to his mouth. He liked alternating and having a choice between little guys.
A fun & friendly sensory oral motor kit|||ARK's Z-Vibe® Animal Critters Travel Kit is a fun-loving must-have for your sensory oral motor treatment plan. Each kit includes 1 Z-Vibe handle, 1 Cat Tip, 1 Mouse Tip, 1 Dog Tip, and 1 storage case. Each component of this kit is also available separately, but you save by buying them in a bundle here.
The cat, mouse, and dog's charming and familiar faces captivate children's attention and increase their willingness to participate in therapy. The various shapes and textures provide lots of opportunities for mouthing, sound production, and feeding. Use them to generate different sensations within the oral cavity and around the lips and face. The reverse sides have many additional textures and pockets for the tongue to explore. The backs also have bite blocks to work on jaw grading and stability. Use the ears to scoop foods on either a smooth or textured surface. The Z-Vibe® can also be turned on for additional sensory input with its smooth, gentle vibration. Vibration provides a new level of stimulation to increase awareness and to draw more acute attention to the articulators. Many individuals also find vibration to be calming and soothing.

Please note: the unit comes with a special Vibe Battery not available in stores. We recommend buying a spare using the pull down menu above.
Caution: the Z-Vibe is NOT a toy. It is a therapeutic tool intended to be used by a professional therapist (or by parents trained by their therapist). It contains small parts (including a battery) that may pose a choking hazard: direct adult supervision is required at all times.
