ARK's Textured Grabber® is an oral motor chew tool made out of the same soft, chewy, resilient material as our regular Grabber®. It features three different surfaces to chew on: one smooth, one with circular bumps, and one with rectangular bumps. These textures simulate the feel of actual food for realistic non-food chewing practice. They also add extra tactile sensation to the lips, cheeks, gums, and tongue to help desensitize the mouth, decrease decrease oral defensiveness/aversions, and transition individuals with sensory issues from puréeed to textured foods. The Grabber® can also be used:

  • As an oral fidget for sensory seekers craving stimulation and proprioceptive input
  • As a safe alternative to chewing on hands, knuckles, shirts, pencils, etc.
  • As an alternative to tooth-grinding and/or thumb-sucking
  • To help decrease oral defensiveness and food aversions
  • To practice biting/chewing without the risk of choking
  • To build oral strength, mobility, and control
  • To satisfy the urge to chew for individuals who are fed through a g-tube

ARK Therapeutic manufactures the Grabber® in the USA! It's constructed out of medical grade, FDA compliant materials that contain NO lead, phthalates, PVC, BPA, or latex. It's also molded out of one solid piece of material with no holes or crevices that could harbor saliva or bacteria.

Caution: although these chew tools are made out of sturdy, medical grade materials, they are not indestructible. Some individuals (particularly those with heavy oral needs and aggressive biting/chewing) may be able to damage the tools. Please supervise at all times and replace if necessary when the item shows signs of wear and tear
Features
  • The Grabber® has a "built-in" handle that makes it easy for the hand to hold.
  • While all surfaces can be chewed on, the long extension allows individuals to reach the back molar area where we do most of our chewing.
  • The Grabber® measures 5 inches lengthwise, and just under 2 inches across the loop/handle.
  • The Grabber® comes in several different sizes, textures, scents, and resiliencies to best fit each individual's needs:
  • The regular purple Grabber® is soft and chewy
  • The Grabber XT® is constructed of a firmer, "Xtra Tough" material for individuals who exert more jaw pressure.
  • The Textured Grabber® has various tactile bumps to simulate the texture of real food.
  • The Scented Grabbers simulate the smell of real food for added interest and sensory input.
  • The Baby Grabber® has a shorter stem for those smaller mouths.
  • Made in the USA! The Grabber® is manufactured in the United States from medical grade materials that are FDA compliant and contain no lead, phthalates, PVC, BPA, or latex.

Textured Grabber September 19, 2015
Reviewer: HEATHER PRATHER from GLENDALE, AZ United States  
My son is always chewing on fingers or clothing. I bought the ARK's Textured Grabber and he loves it! I no longer see fingers or holes in his shirts from chewing.
