As a mouthing tool, ARK's Grabber provides an excellent opportunity for the mouth to play through jaw movement, tongue movement, and oral exploration. The chewy, resilient material helps with oral defensiveness and food aversions by de-sensitizing the mouth. It is also a safe and durable alternative to tooth-grinding and/or chewing on hazardous non-food items. Each Grabber is constructed of medical grade materials that are FDA compliant and contain no lead, phthalates, PVC, BPA, or latex. The resilient material is solid with no through holes or crevices that could harbor bacteria or saliva.
MADE in the USA out of medical grade, FDA compliant materials that contain NO lead, phthalates, PVC, BPA, or latex.
Caution: this therapeutic tool should be used under adult supervision at all times.The Grabber has a"built-in"handle that makes it easy for the hand to hold. While all surfaces can be chewed on, the extension of the Grabber allows individuals to reach areas further back on the tongue and between the gums and teeth - giving them that extra proprioceptive input that they need. The Grabber measures 5 inches lengthwise, and just under 2 inches across the loop/handle. The Grabber comes in several different sizes, textures, scents, and resiliencies to best fit each individual's needs. The Grabber XTs are constructed of a firmer material for individuals who exert more jaw pressure. The Textured Grabbers have different bumps and surfaces to simulate the textures of real food. The Scented Grabbers enhance interest by simulating the smell of real food. The Baby Grabber has a shorter stem for those smaller mouths. Made in the USA! The Grabber is manufactured in the United States from medical grade materials that are FDA compliant and contain no lead, phthalates, PVC, BPA, or latex.The Grabbers can be used:
