ARK's Grabber® is the original and most popular ARK Therapeutic chew tool that's soft and chewy. Use it to exercise the lips, tongue, cheeks, and especially the jaw, allowing the mouth to learn and grow strong through oral exploration.
They can also help with oral defensiveness and food aversions by de-sensitizing the mouth and introducing it to new textures that simulate the textures of real food. Furthermore, they are 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.
