What are the Benefits of Chewelry (Chew + Jewelry)?
Munchables are chewable jewelry (chewelry) that diverts chewing from fingers, clothing and pencils acting as discreet, stylish sensory aides. They provide a focus point, which can help filter out extra sensory information. Sensory Chewelry may help regulate attention, concentration, emotions and other behaviors.
The Canadian Association of Occupational Therapists recognizes Munchables sensory chewelry for their ability 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.” Read the full report.
See references from the scientific journals on the Benefits Page that go into greater depth into the relationship between chewing and anxiety.

How Long do Chew Necklaces Last?
his question is almost impossible for me to answer as every individual's chewing is different. Some designs that work well for heavier chewers include the SUPER CHEW Tear Drop, Donut, Scribbles, or Yummy Gummy pendants. My top choice is the SUPER CHEW Tear Drop as it is very firm, followed by the Donut and Scribbles Pendants. Other good choices are the Tire and Tear Drop Pendants.
**EVERY Munchables includes a 90-Day Chew Guarantee.**
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:
1. Length of time chewed,
2. Jaw strength,
3. Type of chewing (simple chewing or scraping/twisting of necklace); and, the
4. Style of the item.
Please regularly inspect items for signs of wear and discard the product immediately if damage is found.
Can Adults use Chew Necklaces?
I'm looking for chewelry for aggressive chewers and I’m worried that he/she will be able to rip their Munchable. What style should we try?
Our top recommendation for heavy chewers our the SUPER CHEW Dragon Chewelry. Some other designs that work well for aggressive chewers include the SUPER CHEW Tear Drop, Donut, Scribbles, or Yummy Gummy pendants. My top choice is the SUPER CHEW Tear Drop as it is very firm, followed by the Donut and Scribbles Pendants. Other good choices are the Tire and Tear Drop Pendants.
If you think that you need chewelry for aggressive chewers, these styles are better choices as they are thicker and have no protrusions that can be bitten off.

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.
