Kate loves to chew. It's a sensory thing that can draw unwanted attention from folks who don't understand why an almost four year old is chewing anything she can get her hands on. We've purchased many chewing items through our occupational therapist to encourage her to stop chewing on her toys or her clothes. For the most part, she enjoys them but she certainly stands out in a room.
Recently, we received a Chewigem necklace. It's the most beautiful mother of pearl colour and hangs long with a breakaway clasp for safety. I adored it right away and so did our older daughter Grace who begged to wear it to school the following day.
I presented it to Kate without explanation to get her honest reaction:
Kate: To me?????
Me: Yes, Kate. This is for you.
Kate: Kate's amuwet???? (amulet)
Me: Yes, baby. That is Kate's amulet.
It's fair to say that Kate loves her Chewigem Pendant. Check out a few of other styles below. How cool are those dog tags?
Kate adores her 'amulet'. She no longer stands out among her peers and some of them have even asked us where she got it. She can even wear it with a dress if we could ever convince her to wear one.
She chews it with purpose and does not like to be disturbed while she is chewing away. Kate has destroyed many 'chewable items' that were advertised to be 'indestructible' but she's hasn't been able to make a dent in this one. For that reason alone, we are huge fans.
Kate prefers her 'amulet' to hang with Gru from Despicable Me, above. If I can ever get it out of her hands I hang it in her room because we are nervous we will lose it. It really is a lovely product and we were thrilled to receive it.
