ARK'sTextured Baby Grabber is just like the Baby Grabber but with added bumps and nubs for extra sensory input.
ARK'sTextured Baby Grabber is designed to calm and soothe infants who are in the early stages of development. At approximately 5-6 months, babies start mouthing and chewing in order to strengthen their mouth muscles and exercise their lips, tongue, and jaw. This oral exploration prepares them to eat solid foods and to make speech sounds later on.
Soft and chewy, the Baby Grabber provides a safe outlet for babies to develop these skills. It can also assist in self-organization, in the transition from puréed to textured foods, and in soothing sore gums. While all surfaces of the Grabber can be chewed on, the extension provides input all the way to the back molar area. Highly recommended for any babies in the mouthing stage, but particularly those with hypersensitivity and oral sensory defensiveness.
Measures approximately 10cm in length and just under 5cm across the loop.
Not recommended for aggressive chewing.
The light blue, yellow, and pink Baby Grabbers are soft and chewy. The turquoise Baby Grabber is firmer yet still chewy and pliable. Teething babies may prefer the firmer option, as it provides added resistance and input to the gums.
ARK's Baby Grabber is recommended for children up to the age of 2 and a half years. After that, children should graduate to the regular Grabbers or Y-Chews.

Caution: This product is not a toy. Recommended for children 5-6 months and up. lthough 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, regularly inspect the chew, and replace if necessary if the item shows signs of wear and tear.
