Who is behind our KidCompanions Chewelry Oral Motor Tool?
Pierrette and Lorna, mother and grand-mother of special needs children, have dedicated the past few years to bring this safe, efficient and age-appropriate Tool to market. What are the features parents, teachers, therapist and, most of all, the users themselves appreciate most from this chewable necklace or handy hand fidget?
Features of KidCompanions Chewelry
The chewable pendants have two textures/materials. The raised heart dot is smooth and harder than the smooth, rubbery rest of the pendant. The heart shapes have a smooth dip in front also conducive to fidgeting. Therefore our KidCompanions serve both groups of individuals,those who need a chew necklace or those who need a hand fidget to help them self-regulate and focus. Buy online at www.kidcompanions.com
Designed by a mom of three little girls, KidCompanions Chewelry has all the features one of the designer’s children with Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD) requires. She can wear it proudly and use it to satisfy her urge to chew. Also, it is important that the lanyard be comfortable. The clasp has to be small, smooth, and lay flat for comfort. Most of all, the special needs necklace must be comfortable and comply with child safety regulations.
We know the chewy pendants MUST be “just right” to touch, to chew, and to wear. Then, on the part of the moms, who want peace-of-mind regarding safety and hygiene issues, we thought about those wishes too. We perfected our mouth fidget and lanyards until they met your demands.
KidCompanions Chewelry Oral Motor Tool is SAFE!
Our KidCompanions Chewelry is made in Canada, in a medical device manufacturing facility that is ISO certified. It is CE marked and made with medical grade thermoplastic Elastomer (rubbery overmold) and Polypropylene (harder insert mold).
We buy our organic cotton lanyard un-dyed. It is made in America and hand-dyed, rinsed and pre-washed in Canada at our office in Nova Scotia.
The packages we use are made in America of FDA approved cellophane. We have a quality management system. Knowledge of our chain of supply (sourcing) is a priority. Therefore, KidCompanions Chewelry is safe, bpa, phthalate, pvc, lead and latex free! Moreover, this jewelry that you chew is stylish and discreet allowing the user to fit in.
Some of the main reasons for designing the KidCompanions Chewelry were material safety and traceability. Our countries have some rules and regulations, but without testing and efficient control, companies too often sell doubtful products to unknowing families.
The cost of manufacturing the KidCompanions Chewelry is higher than many other products, and these are the reasons.
- We source our materials in Canada or America.
- We manufacture our product in Canada.
- We pay fair wages.
- We stay green while doing it. The lanyard is 100% cotton and will return to the earth. We pay no overseas petrol freight costs and employ no child labour or unpaid/trafficked persons.
It is the price to pay for us to make that stand and we hope you will understand. So this mom invented, KidCompanions Chewelry is a safe, non-toxic special needs tool for those with autism, ADHD, Tourette syndrome, Down syndrome, FASD, SPD… and just right for your child too.
