The team at SentioLife Solutions always loves receiving feedback from the folks who buy our chew necklaces. This week we received a priceless, lovely story about the benefits our KidCompanions Chewelry brings to a young adult. Thank you so much Alexis Wallerstein!
In February earlier this year I gave a testimonial about your heart chewelry. You were very kind and gave me a discount. You may remember that I mentioned that I was blind, in my 20’s, and have a severe anxiety disorder and sensory sensitivity. I just wanted to let you know I am taking a creative writing class on-line and I wrote a story about your chewelry. My instructor enjoyed reading and finding out about your chewelry. I hope you enjoy my short story. The chewelry continues to help me in my times of stress. I have attached the story for you to read. Thanks for taking the time to read my email.
All the best,

Hi, I am a chewelry companion to my friend Alexis. I am a wearable, chewable green heart chew pendant. I’m made out of 2 fused parts and made of thermo-plastic elastomers, both medical grade. I am free of BPA’s, phthalates, metals and latex, so I am very safe to chew on.
I’m attached to a soft, 100% organic cotton breakaway lanyard that Alexis wears around her neck. I am there for her whenever she needs to chew. I am a safer alternative to chewing instead of on clothing, hands, and pencils, etc.
I support children, teens and adults who have sensory processing challenges, such as; autism, ADHD and sensory processing disorder, and have the need to chew. I feel better that Alexis chews on me instead of her hands. When it’s time for Alexis to focus or when she’s stressed, it makes me very happy when Alexis chews or fidgets with me. This makes her feel more grounded and secure.
When not being chewed on I also make a great fidget toy too. I have two fun textures on me to play with. I have a raised dot on the front side of me and little dots on the back side of me. When not chewing, Alexis will rub her thumb on the raised dot on the front of side.
Before Alexis had me she used to chew on her hands whenever she got nervous. She was sad because she didn’t know how to stop it and what to do about it. Then after some smart thinking, she went on line looking for a solution. After reading and researching many websites she found me at KidCompanions Chewelry of Canada. I was happy to be finally picked.
I have been sitting in the warehouse for a long time. Waiting to be selected for a chance to be a special companion for those who have the need to chew. When Alexis and I first met it was one of the happiest moments in my life. She loved the way she felt after chewing and fidgeting with me. And I loved her sweet, easy going personality. From that moment on I knew that we were made for each other. And to this day where ever Alexis goes I go too. We are very happy together. So if you are in need of a chewelry companion just go to KidCompanions.com.
KidCompanions Chewelry Breakaway Lanyards were only available in 18″ and 20″ lengths. After we had read Alexis’ lovely letter, we realized that many other adults could benefit from our KidCompanions Chewelry. We now have available all of our KidCompanions Heart and Circle shapes with a matching 28″ comfortable, colorful, cotton breakaway lanyard.
Our chew necklaces help individuals with Alzheimer or have dementia because often they are restless, anxious, and pace back and forth and fidget or chew items that bring questions of hygiene, damaged teeth, and damaged belongings to mind. My father was in a nursing home because of Alzheimer and he would fidget with his eye glasses. He twisted and ruined them and I wish we had had a fidgeting objet like our KidCompanions Chewelry to give him.
The 18″ and 20″ chew pendants come with an UNDYED 100% ORGANIC COTTON breakaway lanyard that is the best choice for fabric chewers! And they are also available with colorful, comfortable cotton breakaway lanyards. These lanyards can also be bought separately and fit our two lines of chew necklaces and other pendants. We also have 24″ black lanyards and 28″undyed organic cotton lanyards that can be bought separately.
For individuals who do not like a neck lanyard they can buy Clip-on Chews that attach to clothing, bedding, seat-belts, etc. The Clip-on short 9″ lanyards can also be bought separately and folks can interchange them easily to fit their needs. Many folks attach the Clip-ons to bedding so it is immediately available any time of the night.
