Does chewing on pen caps and pencil erasers sound familiar? Then you’re in luck!
ARK’s KryptoBite™ Chewable Pencil Toppers are a safe solution for kids and adults who need to chew. Chewing can be a very effective way to help calm, self-regulate, and focus, so these chewy tools are a perfect pairing for homework, note-taking, and more. As an added bonus, they also add extra weight to the pencil for increased hand awareness and to help the pencil comfortably rest in the web space between the thumb and pointer finger. They have a hollow tube on one end to conveniently fit over standard #2 pencils.
- Each topper measures about 2.75″ long, and .5″ diameter
KryptoBites come in color-coded toughness levels:
- standard (dark blue) – recommended for mild chewers
- XT (lime green) – XT stands for “Xtra Tough,” recommended for moderate chewers
- XXT (royal blue) – XXT stands for “Xtra Xtra Tough,” recommended for those who like the resistance of chewing on hard items
Each topper is sold individually with it’s own free eraser-less pencil. Colour hues may vary slightly. Please note: the bottom half of these toppers are hollow in order to fit over pencils, and as such they are not recommended for avid / aggressive chewers. The best options for avid chewers are solid XXT grabbers. Best practice is to use with eraser-less pencils (one is included with each topper).
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. Recommended for children 6-7 years and up (the age that children typically start using a standard pencil). 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 and replace if necessary if the item shows signs of wear and tear.
