    Product Description

    ARK's Y-Chew® is an innovative Y-shaped oral motor chew tool.  It has three different extensions to chew on, each with its own texture (smooth, ribbed, and bumpy) for a varied sensory experience.

    It comes in 3 color-coded toughness levels:

    • Soft/Standard -  These are the softest ones with the most “squishiness” and “give” to them.  Recommended for mild chewers and/or beginners practicing biting/chewing skills
    • Medium Firm / XT - XT stands for "Xtra Tough," recommended for moderate chewing.  These are firmer, but still chewy.
    • Very Firm / XXT - XXT stands for "Xtra Xtra Tough," recommended for more avid chewing.  These are the most firm and provide the most resistance to the jaw.  No chew tool is indestructible, but these are very tough.

    Use the Y-Chew as a safe alternative to biting/chewing on fingers, shirts, and other hazardous non-food items.  It can also be used:

    • As an oral fidget for sensory seekers craving oral input and stimulation
    • To exercise the lips, tongue, cheeks, and especially the jaw, allowing the mouth to learn and grow strong through oral exploration
    • To decrease thumb sucking, tooth grinding, and finger/knuckle biting
    • To practice biting/chewing skills without the risk of choking
    • To improve jaw strength, jaw stability, tongue movement, and other feeding skills
    • To satisfy the urge to chew for individuals who are fed through a g-tube
    • To build oral tone, strength, mobility, control, coordination, and endurance
    • To decrease oral sensitivities, oral defensiveness, and food aversions

    ARK manufactures these chew tools in the USA!  They're medical grade, FDA compliant, and contain NO lead, phthalates, PVC, BPA, or latex.  The handle measures 6.3cm and the extensions measure 4.4cm and 3cm respectively.

    Choose your colour/toughness option from the menu above.  Each Y-Chew is sold individually.  Colour hues may vary slightly. 

    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 tool lasts depends on the amount and intensity of the chewing, the oral sensory needs of the individual, whether or not they are seeing an occupational therapist if needed, as well as many other variables in his/her life.  Please supervise at all times and replace if necessary when the item shows signs of wear and tear.

    Great little tool.

    My daughter is currently under a feeding team as she is 8 years old and has never chewed food in her life.
    I bought the Y chew to help her to develop her chewing skills.
    She likes to use it on her back teeth and hopefully it will help her to practice.
    It is a rigid chew but soft enough to comfortabley chew on.
    I give it 5 stars.
