XXT stands for "Xtra Xtra Tough!" The material is even firmer than the popular Grabber XT, but still resilient with enough "give" to allow for therapeutic chewing. The Grabber is an excellent way to exercise the lips, tongue, cheeks, and especially the jaw, allowing the mouth to learn and grow strong through oral exploration. It can also be used:
To exercise the lips, tongue, cheeks, and especially the jaw, allowing the mouth to learn and grow strong through oral exploration
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
Made 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. How long they last may depend on the oral sensory needs of the child as well as other variables. Please supervise at all times and replace if necessary when the item shows signs of wear and tear.
