    Chew toy information please!

    For those who have "chewies" as part of their lives

    What are your favorite brands/styles? Do you have a web site that you usually order from?

    Pictures would be extremely helpful!

    Thanks in advance!
    Blessings,
    Debbie and the guys

    Hi Debbie!
    Lovely to see you again!
    We don't have chewies as such, but I do buy Daniel some dog chew toys that are easily squeezable and make a noise. Some of them are rubber /plastic, others are fleece covered. The rubber / plastic ones, once thoroughly washed make quite good chew toys! The other things Daniel tends to chew on are his Action Men. These need to be the original Action Men as they stand any amount of pulling, twisting, chewing, wrenching, throwing etc! More recent substitutes just come apart! Daniel has to laugh though when I tell him he's made another man 'legless?!!
    Lots of love and good wishes

    I found this chew toy for my son:
    http://www.mondo.ch/shop/default.aspx

    And this ball:
    http://www.ringelfee.de/search.php?o...ch_query=oball

    That's not to chew. But he can hold it well with your hands / fingers and then chews less on the fingers!

    Sorry. I can not copy the picture here. Therefore the link. Should be no Advertising!

    Nadia uses the Chewy Tubes (that's the brand name), we buy them from a seller on eBay. The green and blue ones are designed for older children.

    Our favorites are the Chewey Tubes Chew Stixx from the Sensory University. You can search for them on Amazon. Jake prefers the green knobby one. They are the most durable ones we have found.

    Wow. Cool.
    Thanks for the tip. I looked on the internet and this "Chewy Tube" is also available in Switzerland. I ordered it to try out.

    We use the Ark's Grabber XT or the Chewy Tubes Superchew. The Ark's grabber (green) holds up a bit longer, but the superchews are generally less expensive. I have found them on Amazon or at sites like http://www.especialneeds.com/speech-...hewy-toys.html or http://www.beyondplay.com/CATALOG/ORA1.HTM . When Logan was younger and active, we used a pacifier clip to attach them to his clothes, but now that he is older and not moving around, I loop them through a chewlery necklace http://www.amazon.com/Abilitations-I...words=chewlery I would recommend trying a few different chewies, because not all kids like the same ones. We avoid the regular hollow chewy tubes because they would really fling drool everywhere! If the child isn't a big drooler, they hold up really well.

    Since Jack's latest regression, he has been obsessively chewing to the point of safety issues, chomps off pieces of plastic. ANyhow, after much consulting (MPS moms, and speech therapist), the best ones for him is
