ARK's Baby Grabber® smooth
Color & Toughness: yellow, soft
ARK's Baby Grabber® is designed to calm and soothe infants who are in the early stages of development. At approximately 5-6 months, babies start mouthing and chewing in order to strengthen their mouth muscles and exercise their lips, tongue, and jaw. This oral exploration prepares them to eat solid foods and to make speech sounds later on. Soft and chewy, the Baby Grabber® provides a safe outlet for babies to develop these skills. It can also assist in self-organization, in the transition from puréed to textured foods, and in soothing sore gums. While all surfaces of the Grabber® can be chewed on, the extension provides input all the way to the back molar area. Highly recommended for any babies in the mouthing stage, but particularly those with hypersensitivity and oral sensory defensiveness.Measures approximately 10cm in length and just under 5cm across the loop. Not recommended for aggressive chewing. The light blue, yellow, and pink Baby Grabbers are soft and chewy. The turquoise Baby Grabber is firmer yet still chewy and pliable. Teething babies may prefer the firmer option, as it provides added resistance and input to the gums.ARK's Baby Grabber is recommended for children up to the age of 2 and a half years.After that, children should graduate to the regular Grabbers or Y-Chews. ARK manufactures the Grabber® in the USA! It's medical grade, FDA compliant, and contains no lead, phthalates, PVC, BPA, or latex. It's also molded out of one solid piece of material with no holes or crevices that could harbor saliva or bacteria.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. Please supervise at all times and replace if necessary when the item shows signs of wear and tear.

ARK's Baby Grabber® (Textured) is just like the Baby Grabber but with added bumps and nubs for extra sensory input. Each Baby Grabber is designed to calm and soothe infants who are in the early stages of development. At approximately 5-6 months, babies start mouthing and chewing in order to strengthen their mouth muscles and exercise their lips, tongue, and jaw. This oral exploration prepares them to eat solid foods and to make speech sounds later on. The Baby Grabber® provides a safe outlet for babies to develop these skills.

ARK's Baby Guitar
Colours: pink
ARK's Baby Guitar is a fun and functional way for babies and toddlers to mouth, chew, and sooth sore gums.The charming guitar shape is easy for little hands to hold, with a stem to reach the back molar area. The bumps and ridges on the stem resemble the strings/knobs of a real guitar, while also providing extra sensory input. ARK's Baby Guitar is just like the regular Guitar, only a tad smaller, with a shorter stem for smaller mouths. The baby guitars can also be precooled in the refrigerator. Please do not put in the freezer, that can lead to frostbite! Soft & chewy Measures about 10cm long, 6,3cm wide, and 1cm thick. The stem is just over 2,5cm long. Wash with mild soap and water.

ARK's Baby Tetra-Bite®
Baby Tetra Bite: royal blue, soft
ARK's Baby Tetra-Bite® is designed to calm and soothe infants who are in the early stages of development.At approximately 5-6 months of age, babies start mouthing and chewing in order to strengthen their mouth muscles and exercise their lips, tongue, and jaw. This oral exploration prepares them to eat solid foods and to make speech sounds later on. The Baby Tetra-Bite™ provides a safe outlet for babies to develop these skills.Babies can mouth and explore 4 different "arms" - each with a different texture for lots of varied sensory input. The two rectangular arms have ribs: one with horizontal ribs that wrap around the extension, and one with long ribs that run the length of the extension. The two rectangular arms have bumps: one with mild round bumps, and one with zigzag bumps that provide more input. With all these different shapes and textures, the Tetra-Bite® helps introduce babies to new sensations orally, which helps prepare them for solid foods later on and also helps decrease and/or prevent oral sensitivities. The Baby Tetra-Bite® measures just under 12,7cm across. Each extension measures just over 2,5cm long and about 1cm thick - perfect for reaching the back molars where we need to chew the most.The blue, teal, and pink Baby Tetra-Bites are soft and chewy. The turquoise Baby Tetra-Bite is firmer yet still chewy and pliable. Teething babies may prefer the firmer option, as it provides added resistance and input to the gums.Baby Tetra-Bites are recommended for children up to the age of 2 and a half years. After that, children should graduate to the regular Tetra-Bites, Grabbers or Y-Chews. Made in the USA by ARK Therapeutic.

ARK's Bear Bottle Kit
ARK's Bear Bottle Kit is a fun and friendly way to make drinking easier for beginners and/or children with oral motor difficulties. It's also an excellent way to transition babies straight from bottles to straw drinking - skipping sippy cups altogether! Many speech therapists believe that sippy cups can promote improper tongue positioning and an immature swallowing pattern, while straw drinking can help strengthen the mouth muscles and encourage tongue retraction, cheek tension, lip closure, and proper oral positioning.The Bear Bottle features a unique valve that controls the direction of fluid - liquid flows up into the straw, but does not flow back down. Simply squeeze the bear's belly until fluid reaches the top of the straw and release. Fluid will stay at the top of the straw, thereby decreasing the effort required to drink. Highly recommended for individuals who tend to aspirate or have a weak suck with difficulties generating and maintaining suction.Kit includes: 1 easy-to-squeeze Bear Bottle with a snap-close cap1 Select-Flow Valvestraws - 2 tubing straws1 yellow Lip Blok® (3/4"). These tubing straws are durable alternative to traditional straws, and the Lip Blok prevents kids from biting on the straw or putting it too far into their mouths.Made out of non-toxic, food grade materialsDishwasher-safe Holds 236ml of fluidBottle measures approximately 5cm x 6,3cm x 15,2cmColors may vary Not recommended for carbonated beveragesRecommended for thin liquids (water, milk, juice without pulp, etc).Compatible with most standard 0,63cm diameter straws Lid colors may vary.

ARK's Bite Tube
Color & Toughness: lime green, XT
ARK's Bite Tube is a hollow chew tool with a different diameter on each end.Use it as a safe alternative for anyone who needs to chew. They can also be used as an oral motor tool to work on jaw strength and stability. The tube-like extension is perfect for individuals who want their chew tool to "collapse" more, whether as a sensory chew and/or in feeding therapy. As an oral motor tool, use it to practice biting/chewing skills without the risk of choking, to build jaw strength and stability, and to exercise the mouth muscles.Put puréed foods inside the tube for functional biting/chewing practice - when the individual bites down, they will be rewarded with a taste of food. The two different diameters allow you to work on varying jaw heights. Because the hollow tube provides less resistance than solid chews like the Grabber, this is a great "starter" chew tool for individuals with very limited jaw strength.Each chew measures about 12,7cm long overall, 1,3cm in diameter on one end, and 1cm in diameter on the other end. It is hollow all the way through the core. Like all ARK chews, the Bite Tube is available in 3 color-coded toughness levels:Standard - This is the softest level, recommended for mild chewers (those who do not chew through anything) and/or those with limited jaw strength  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 pretty firm (although not as firm/tough as our solid chews).Note: if you are looking for a long lasting chew tool for avid chewing, we recommend solid chews over hollow chews. Check out the Tetra-Bite for example.Medical grade, FDA compliant, NO lead, phthalates, PVC, BPA, or latex. Each Bite Tube is sold individually - choose which option you'd like from the pull-down menu above.Exact color hues may vary slightly. Caution: This product is not a toy. 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 at first sign of wear and tear.

ARK's Button Tips
Button Tips: large Set, teal
ARK's Button Tips are a fun and engaging way to work on lip closure and lip strength - fundamental skills needed for proper speech and feeding development.They're exactly the same as the proButton set, but fashioned into tip attachments for the Z-Vibe® (Z-Vibe® sold separately). Speech therapists have been doing a "button pull" lip closure activity with their clients since the 1970s by tying string through buttons. ARK's Button Tip set offers a safer, professional upgrade of that classic oral motor exercise - no more small parts or thin string to worry about! The Button Tips are sold in a set of 2 yellow tips (the smallest sizes) OR a set of 2 teal ones (the largest sizes). The yellow buttons are 1,26cm and 1,52cm in diameter (labeled 1 and 2, respectively). The teal buttons are 1,78cm and 2cm in diameter (labeled 3 and 4, respectively).Starting with the largest button that comfortably fits in the individual's mouth, place the "button" inside the lips (in front of the teeth). Have the individual close their lips around the button while you pull and do a gentle "tug and pull" motion for resistance. Eventually transition to the smaller diameter buttons as the individual progresses. Working on lip closure can help improve feeding skills, drinking skills, saliva control, speech sound production, and more.Made in the USA, medical grade, FDA compliantNo BPA, PVC, lead, phthalates, or latex Each tip measures about 6,5cm long Each "button" has a different diameter Dishwasher-safeTo be used with any Z-Vibe® or Z-Grabber® (sold separately)Sold in a 2 pack (two yellow or two teal)Patent pendingCaution: this therapeutic tool should be used under adult supervision at all times.

ARK's Lip Blok®
Colour: magenta
ARK's Lip Blok® mouthpieces are simple yet effective oral motor tools. They naturally exercise the mouth muscles to discourage tongue-thrusting, promote tongue retraction, and correct overall tongue positioning. They also prevent individuals from biting the straw or putting it too far into their mouths. Simply press them into the top of a straw, and drink. Lip Bloks come in three different lengths – 1,9cm (yellow), 1,3cm (blue), and 0,6cm (turquoise).The magenta and orange colored Lip Blok is flexible and measures 1.9cm. For the best results, start with the longest length. Once the individual becomes accustomed to that length, switch to the 1,3cm and then finally to the 0,6cm. This hierarchy slowly teaches individuals to put less and less of the straw into their mouths. When only 0,6cm is inside the mouth, fluid is deposited in the front of the mouth where it is easier to manage and less likely to cause coughing or aspiration. With shorter lengths, you also get a better oral motor workout, as the tongue retracts more, the lips seal better, and the cheeks have more tension. Medical grade, FDA compliantNO lead, phthalates, PVC, BPA, or latex.Sold individuallyCompatible with most regular drinking straws (measuring 0,63cm in diameter)Caution: Use of these products should be supervised at all times.

ARK's One-Way Straws
ARK's One-Way Straws make drinking easier for individuals with a weak suck, oral motor difficulties, and/or problems generating and maintaining suction.Each straw features a built-in valve that controls the direction of fluid one-way - fluid flows up into the straw, but does not empty back into the cup. With fluid remaining at the top of the straw, less air is ingested and less effort is required to drink. Users therefore tend to experience less coughing and choking while consuming more fluids. Because the valves are built-in, these straws provide both convenience for the caregiver and discretion for the user. They save time and labor for the caregiver/therapist while increasing independence, dignity, and hydration for the individual. Made in the USA No lead, phthalates, PVC, BPA, or latexSold in packs of 10Can be used on their own, or with either the Cip-Kup® or Sip-Tip® to further assist drinkingNot recommended for carbonated beverages Recommended for thin liquids (water, milk, juice without pulp, etc)

ARK's proSpoon™ - smooth
Color & Sizes proSpoon™: large, purple
ARK's proSpoon™ was specially designed by feeding therapist Debbie Lowsky, MS, CCC-SLP to support easy feeding and food removal for young children.The size and shape of the spoon bowl are "just right" - big enough to hold an appropriate amount of food, but small enough to prevent the spoon from being overloaded with too much food. As an extra bonus: the back of the spoon bowl has gentle bumps to help transition children from puréed to textured foods. These sensory bumps also stimulate the tongue and lower lip and provide added tongue stability.It's a rigid spoon, but it does have slight flexibility to it so that it's gentle on the teeth (in case someone has a bite reflex and bites down on the spoon). This flexibility also means that you can bend the spoon slightly to make the handle curved - perfect for individuals who have limited hand dexterity to make self-feeding easier.This listing is for 1 proSpoon™.Each small spoon measures 13,7cm long. The handle measures 0,9cm in diameter. The spoon bowl specifically measures about 3,5x1,9cm(LxW). This size is best for infants and toddlers and works best with puréed foods like yogurt, applesauce, stage 1 baby foods, etc.Each large spoon measures 15,3cm long. The handle measures 0,9cm in diameter. The spoon bowl specifically measures about 4,45 x 2,5cm (LxW). This size is best for older children and up through adults. Adults may find this spoon a little smaller than regular spoons.Each spoon is sold individually.Exact colors hues may vary slightly.Dishwasher-safe.Medical grade, FDA compliant, no lead, phthalates, PVC, BPA, or latex.Please note: this is not a vibrating spoon. If you're looking for the vibrating spoon, please see ARK's Z-Vibe with the Spoon Tip attachment. Please also note: this is a spoon, not a chew tool.

ARK's Reindeer Chew
Color & Toughness: Red, Standard
ARK's Reindeer Teething Rings are great for babies to get relief from teething or for toddlers to practice chewing and biting, or self-soothing!The design has been specially adapted for children: The ring is easy to hold and the antlers are long enough to reach the back molars! This makes teething easier even during the Christmas season! The red reindeer are soft and easy to chew, the green ones are hard and therefore suitable for stronger chewing.The ring is about 7cm in diameter and about 1cm thick. Wash with mild soap and water. Can be cleaned in the dishwasher in the top compartment.Recommended for children aged 6 months to 2.5 years. For children over 2.5 years, we recommend the Grabber and/or Y-Chew. Medical grade, FDA compliant, without lead, phthalates, BPA, PVC or latex.Caution: This product is not a toy. Recommended for 6 months 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.
