Ark Therapeutic is designing, developing medical tools and other equipment for treatment of oral disorders. The range of products manufactured by Ark includes Oral Motor Tools, Chewing Pendants, Sticks and other tools to improve jaw strength for eating and drinking. Founded by an SLP (speech-language pathologist), the organization aims to make life easier for people with less sensory stimulation and feeding disorders. The Dino-Bite Chewable Pendant is a designer chewing accessory that helps in the sensory stimulation of children.
ARK’s Dino-Bite® Chewable Jewelry Necklace is the coolest new chewelry on the block! This “roarsome” T-Rex design is sure to be a hit with dinosaur fans of any age. Measuring in at approximately 1.5 x 2.5 inches and just under half an inch thick, this is a pretty ‘beefy’ chew pendant with a lot of ‘meat’ on its bones. It’s a great option for those who prefer chewing with their pre-molars and/or front teeth (for more slender options that reach the back molars, click here). Use this oral sensory solution as a safe alternative to chewing on pencils, shirts, fingers, etc. and to help calm, focus, and self-regulate. Like all other ARK chewelry, it’s made in South Carolina, USA and comes 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.
Choose your option from the menu above. Each pendant is sold individually with its own breakaway necklace cord. Color hues may vary slightly. Each pendant measures about 1.5″ at the widest part, 2.5″ at the tallest part, and just under half an inch in thickness.
*Please note: because of its beefier shape, each level of the Dino-Bite® may feel tougher than the same toughness level in one of our more slender shapes. So for example, if you like the Krypto-Bite® in the middle XT level, you may want to order the soft Dino-Bite®.
Designed, manufactured, and assembled in the USA by ARK Therapeutic. Medical grade, FDA compliant, NO lead, phthalates, PVC, BPA, or latex.
Caution: This product is not a toy. The clasp and cord are not intended for chewing. Contains small parts that may pose a choking hazard – direct supervision required. Recommended for ages 5 years and up. Although these chew tools are sturdy and durable, no chew tool is indestructible. Wear/tear may be expected given the nature of the intended use. How long they last is typically equal to the amount and intensity of the chewing, as well as other variables (such as jaw strength, stress/anxiety levels, if other sensory strategies are in place, etc.). While for some people a chew tool will last forever, for others with heavy/aggressive oral needs, they may go through it very quickly. Please supervise at all times, regularly inspect the chew, and replace if necessary if the item shows signs of wear and tear. For the longest lasting chew tool overall, click here.
