ARK's Guitar Chew
ARK's Guitar isn't your ordinary acoustic guitar - it's an "achewstic" guitar! This innovative oral motor chew features a long extension to reach the back molars, a smooth loop that's easy to hold, and bumps and ridges (on the stem) that resemble the strings/knobs of a real guitar while also providing extra sensory input.
Each guitar measures about 5.4" long and half an inch thick (very similar in size to the Grabber).
It can also be used in oral motor / feeding therapy to practice biting & chewing skills, work on jaw strength exercises, decrease oral defensiveness, and much more.
They come in 3 color-coded toughness levels:
- Standard - This is the softest level, recommended for mild chewers (those who do not chew through anything).
- XT / Medium Firm- This is the middle level, which we call XT ("Xtra Tough"). It's firmer, but still fairly chewy, recommended for moderate chewers.
- XXT / Very Firm- This is the toughest level, which we call XXT ("Xtra Xtra Tough"). It still has some “chewability” to it, but it’s fairly rigid / pretty firm. No chew tool is indestructible, but this is usually the longest lasting level for avid chewers.
Caution: Although these chew tools are sturdy and durable, no chew tool is indestructible. Some individuals (particularly those with heavy oral needs and aggressive biting/chewing) may be able to damage the tools. How long each chew lasts depends on the amount and intensity of the chewing. ‘’Please supervise at all times and replace if necessary when the item shows sign of wear and tear.
