Ark Smiley Face Chew Necklace
ARKs Smiley Face Chew Necklace is sure to put a smile on your face! The double-sided disc pendant features a big grin smiley on one side (indented) and a cool sunglasses smiley on the other side (raised) for different visual and tactile interest. At just over 5cm in diameter, 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, see otherARK chewelry). Use this oral sensory solution as a safe alternative to chewing on pencils, shirts, fingers, etc. and to help calm, focus, and self-regulate.
We have ARK's Smiley Face comes in 3 color-coded toughness levels:
- Dark Blue or Yellow= Standard, this is the softest Smiley option (the chewiest level, but still firm) recommended for mild chewing
- Lime Green or Hot Pink= XT (firmer), for moderate chewing
- Blue or Orange= XXT (the most firm), for those who like to chew on fairly firm items. It's also the longest lasting level for avid chewing.
- Each pendant is sold individually with its own breakaway necklace cord
- Designed, manufactured, and assembled in the USA by ARK Therapeutic
- Each pendant is medical grade, FDA compliant, and contains NO lead, phthalates, PVC, BPA, or latex
- Each pendant measures approximately 5cm in diameter and .75cm thick.
- The cord measures approximately 91cm 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.
- Highly recommended for individuals who have Autism, sensory needs, anxiety, ADHD, etc, or for anyone of any age who needs to chew.
**Please note: because of its wider shape, each toughness level of the Smiley Face 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" to the soft level in this wider shape.
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. Not recommended for children under 5 years.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 longest lasting chew tool for avid chewing, see ARK's Y-Chew XXT.
