Finding the right chew toy or chewy necklace can be a real challenge. With so many different types of chews available, it can be a bit overwhelming when searching through the options. One of the most frequent questions we are asked about our chew necklaces, is which ones are the toughest or most robust for hard chewers. Comparing the firmness of a chew is impossible to judge based on how a chew looks. While each chew brand might have their own descriptions of firmness, comparing different chewables between different brands on the market is very difficult.
Comparing Different Chew Necklaces
In order to help reduce the confusion regarding chew necklace firmness, we have developed the Sensory Corner Chew Firmness Rating. We have gathered all of the chewy toys and chew necklaces in our range and have compared and rated each one based on our own rating, to help give some consistency across the Sensory Corner range of chew necklaces, chewy bracelets, and hand held chew toys. The visual guide will allow those who are looking for certain type of firmness to make an easier choice at a glance. We have used the following descriptors for our rating scale:
This describes the softest chews we have in our range at the Sensory Corner. The Soft chew is suitable for those who are learning to chew and for those who mouth or suck only on their chews. These chews have the largest amount of flexibility, and bend very easily. The Soft chews are also the weakest chew, as teeth (especially adult teeth) will wear away at this chew very easily.
The Medium-Soft chews have high flexibility and 'give'. They are suitable for those that chew very lightly or mouth only.
The chewy pendant or chewy necklaces in the Medium Chew range can withstand light regular chewing.
The Medium-Firm chew rating indicates that the chew has a small amount of flexibility, but is relatively firm. It is suitable for those who require regular and frequent chewing, and are relatively heavy with their bite.
