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.

Each item is durable, will not deform from use and will not support the growth of bacteria and mold.

How long do chew necklaces last?
Munchables have six different chewing levels ranging from Mild to XX-Strong.
**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 someone, 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 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.
