What are Munchables?
Munchables are chewable jewelry (chewies) that diverts chewing from fingers, clothing and pencils acting as discreet, stylish sensory aides. They provide children with a focus point, which can help kids filter out extra sensory information. Chewies may help regulate attention, concentration, emotions and other behaviors.
Munchables chewies are stylish and fun. The Canadian Association of Occupational Therapists have stated that Munchables can be “used to replace inappropriate chewing behavior (i.e. chewing on fingernails, pencils or clothing) and to provide potential regulating effects for the sensory system - reducing fidgeting and promoting attention and focus.”
Are Munchables safe to chew on?
Munchables offers peace of mind. As a Canadian based company, we understand how important safety is. Munchables are made of just child-safe silicone - no BPA, BPS, or phthalates are found in any of our products. Each item is durable, will not deform from use and will not support the growth of bacteria and mold.
I have sent each Munchable style and colour to an internationally recognized laboratory to ensure that they are completely safe. I have a file folder full of safety certifications with complicated acronyms like CPSIA and ASTM. In summary, Munchables surpass every Canadian and American standard.
How much is shipping?
Standard sized items, included all Munchables branded items, are eligible for FREE SHIPPING within Canada and the USA.

My child is an aggressive chewer and I’m worried that he/she will be able to rip their Munchable. What style should we try?
Some designs that work well for heavier chewers include the Donut, Scribbles, or Yummy Gummy pendants. My top choice is the Donut as it is very firm, followed by the Scribbles Pendant. Other good choices are the Celtic Knot, Tire and Lotus Pendants.
If you think that your child may be an aggressive chewer, these styles are better choices as they are thicker and have no protrusions that can be bitten off.
How long will my Kids’ Munchables last?
This question is almost impossible for me to answer as every child’s chewing is different. Mild chewers may never need to worry about replacing their Munchable, while more aggressive chewers may be able to destroy their items within hours. Please see the question above for specific suggestions for heavier chewers.
Each Munchable is made out of the same 100% kid safe silicone material; however, the style of each item will influence their durability. A piece that has thinner sections, such as the arms of the star on the Girls’ Starlight Necklace will not be as strong as the all-round thicker, round pendant style.
As a thirty-something adult, I am unable to rip the silicone on any item, but with extended chewing and the powerful jaws of a child that likes to chew, it can happen.
In summary, durability will depend on:
- Length of time chewed,
- Strength of child’s jaw,
- Type of chewing (simple chewing or scraping/twisting of neckace); and, the
- Style of the item.
Please regularly inspect items for signs of wear and discard the product immediately if damage is found.
How do I clean my Munchable?
You can put any Munchables items on the top rack of your dishwasher or wash them with soap and water.

Are Munchables just for babies?
Munchables has two separate product lines – one for babies and one for older kids.
Munchables kids’ products are designed for children ages 3+, while baby teething necklaces are designed to be worn by adults. Never put necklaces on babies or leave your child unattended with any accessory.

Can I reduce the amount of packaging used?
To reduce the impact on the environment, we are happy to try to combine items in the same retail package. For example, two zipper pulls can fit into the same package and up to three pendants can fit in one large necklace package. All Munchables packaging is reusable with a zipper closure for easy storage.
Why is my purchase sealed in a vacuum package?
If needed, items in retail packaging are sealed within a vacuum package to prevent package movement that may cause the envelope to exceed 2cm in width. If an envelope exceeds that measurement, Canada Post classifies the item as a package and charges drastically higher shipping rates (up to 10x more). Items shipped to the United States with USPS do not require this as rates are weight based.
