ARK Grabber Textured – Soft

The ARK Textured Grabber is an oral-motor chew tool made out of the same soft, chewy, resilient material as the original Grabber®, which is perfect for mild chewers and/or those with limited jaw strength.

It features three different surfaces to chew on: 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.

They also add extra tactile sensation to the lips, cheeks, gums, and tongue to help desensitize the mouth, decrease oral defensiveness/aversions, and transition individuals with sensory issues from smooth to textured foods.

The Grabber® 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 exercise the lips, tongue, cheeks, and especially the jaw.
  • To allow the mouth to learn and grow strong through oral exploration.
  • 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.
  • Made in the U.S.A. from medical grade, FDA compliant materials.
  • Contains no lead, phthalates, PVC, BPA, or latex.
  • Moulded from a single, 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. How long they last may depend on the oral sensory needs of the child as well as other variables. Please supervise at all times and replace if necessary when the item shows signs of wear and tear.
