Ark's Grabbers are made from a chewy, resilient material. Smooth or textured to suit your preference. They are great for chewing and providing oral motor input for sensory regulation and mouth strengthening.
ARK Grabbers are available in a range of strengths with corresponding colours.
Purple for gentler chewers
Green if you like to have a bit more of a gnaw
Blue if you really like to ravage your chew toys
Grabbers add extra tactile sensation to the lips, cheeks, gums, and tongue to help desensitise the mouth, decrease oral defensiveness/aversions, and transition individuals with sensory issues from puréed to textured foods.
Available in smooth or textured.
Textured grabbers are designed with three different surfaces: one smooth, one with circular bumps, and one with rectangular bumps. These textures simulate the feel of actual food for realistic non-food chewing practice.
The material and colours are non toxic and latex free.
Can also be used:
As an oral fidget for sensory seekers craving stimulation and proprioceptive input
As a safe alternative to chewing on hands, knuckles, shirts, pencils, etc.
As an alternative to tooth-grinding and/or thumb-sucking
To help decrease oral defensiveness and food aversions
To practice biting/chewing without the risk of choking
To build oral strength, mobility, and control
To satisfy the urge to chew for individuals who are fed through a g-tube
ARK manufactures the Grabber® in the USA! It's constructed out of medical grade, FDA compliant materials that contain NO lead, phthalates, PVC, BPA, or latex. It's also moulded out of one solid piece of material with no holes or crevices that could harbour saliva or bacteria.
Caution: although these chew tools are made out of sturdy, medical grade materials, they are not indestructible. Some individuals (particularly those with heavy oral needs and aggressive biting/chewing) may be able to damage the tools. Please supervise at all times and replace if necessary when the item shows signs of wear and tear
