Why has our team at SentioLife Solutions, Ltd. worked so hard to find safe, comfortable ways for kids, tweens, or teens to wear our KidCompanions Chewelry and now our SentioCHEWS? First consider why they need chew necklaces with comfortable breakaway lanyards. These individuals have sensory challenges, fidgeting/focusing problems, anxiety or transition issues. The first thing they need is a feels-just-right chewable tool! The chew necklace lanyard must feel good around the neck. Moreover the pendant must have the correct tactile texture to satisfy their needs.
What features do parents and other caregivers want in a breakaway lanyard? Safety is usually their first concern. Cost, durability and wash-ability come next. How do our two very different breakaway lanyards meet these specific standards?
KidCompanions Chewelry Breakaway Lanyards
If you have a fabric chewer, the 100% organic cotton, undyed breakaway lanyards on our KidCompanions Chewelry is the best choice.
Our colorful, matching KidCompanions Chewelry breakaway lanyards are made from very soft, 100% cotton. Users love the comfortable feel of this lanyard. Most do not mind our chew necklace around their neck.
The breakaway clasp was costom designed by Pierrette. The clasp lies comfortably and this is very convenient for kids who need a chewable tool in bed. They can fall asleep and the KidCompanions Chewelry pendant and lanyard will not be a problem for the rest of the night. I know first-hand of what I speak as when we we were testing them, I wore one for two weeks, day and night. I was amazed how easy to wear KidCompanions Chewelry really is!
The clasp is made with the same non-toxic materials as the hardest part of the KidCompanions Chewelry pendant itself. This clasp is not intended for chewing. In the event your child does damage the clasp, replacement lanyards can be bought separately without having to buy a new chew pendant as well.
We designed these clasp ourselves. They “let go” with a pull of 5 pounds and they reattach easily. The barrel clasps of our SentioSTLYES lanyards take a stronger pull to “let go” but are still very safe for kids to use.
You can choose our KidCompanions Chewelry with an 18, 20, or 28 inch colorful, cotton breakaway lanyard. If you choose our 100% undyed organic breakaway lanyards, they are available in 18 and 20 inch lengths.
You would like an extra spare lanyard? We sell separately 18 and 20 inch lanyards in five colors and a 24 inch black lanyard. The undyed cotton lanyards are sold separately in 18, 20, and 28 inch lengths.
Your child does NOT like anything around his neck? We have a solution for you. Get our KidCompanions Clip-ons that attach to clothing, bedding, seat belts. etc.
SentioSYLES Breakaway Lanyards
After requests and suggestions from kids, parents and health professionals, for our SentioCHEWS we have designed a totally different lanyard for those tough and busy growing kids! The many AWESOME color choices are just an added bonus. SentioCHEWS have our SentioSTYLES 24 inch breakaway lanyards.
SentioSYLES lanyards are REAL made-in-the-USA Tactical Paracord a suitable length and strength for youth and adults! The SentioSTYLES lanyards can all be bought separately for replacements or spares in 24 inch or 28 inch lengths.
A sturdy barrel breakaway is the centrepiece. It takes a hefty tug before releasing as a safety mechanism. It pops open to keep you safe if needed and pops easily back together again.
– The clasp is tough and the paracord is strong, but they are not meant to be chewed.
Classified as sensory tools or sensory toys, the new SentioCHEWS and KidCompanions Chewelry are recommended by occupational therapists. They support individuals affected by mild to severe Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD), Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and other issues associated with sensory challenges. They help users be calm, focus, and satisfy oral-motor needs. The need to move, for those with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), can also be satisfied by using the jaw muscles to chew and bite.
You must agree for chewable necklaces to be effective, the accompanying breakaway lanyards must also be up to snuff safety and comfort wise. SentioLife Solutions’ breakaway lanyards are very stylish and FUNctional for all ages!
