  • Perfect for those who want their chew tool to "collapse"

    Ark chews are a safe solution for anyone who needs to chew.

    ARK's Bite Tube is a hollow chew tool with a different diameter on each end. Use it as a safe outlet for anyone who needs to chew. It can also be used as an oral motor tool to work on jaw strength and stability.

    The tube-like extension is perfect for individuals who want their chew tool to "collapse" more, whether as a sensory chew and/or in feeding therapy. 

    As an oral motor tool, use it to practice biting/chewing skills without the risk of choking, to build jaw strength and stability, and to exercise the mouth muscles. Put puréed foods inside the tube for functional biting/chewing practice - when the individual bites down, they will be rewarded with a taste of food.

    The two different diameters allow you to work on varying jaw heights. Because the hollow tube provides less resistance than solid chews like the Grabber, this is a great "starter" chew tool for individuals with very limited jaw strength. 

    All Ark Chews are available in varying toughness levels to suit all individual sensory needs, from mild to moderate to avid chewing.

    Made of TPE (thermo-plastic elastomer) which is BPA-free, phthalates-free, lead-free, PVC-free, non-toxic materials. Similar to silicone but more durable and longer lasting.

    If you are unsure about which toughness level suits you, feel free to contact us here. As a guide:

    • Standard - This is the softest level, recommended for mild chewers (those who do not chew through anything) and/or those with limited jaw strength
    • XT / Medium Firm - This is the middle level, which we call XT ("Xtra Tough"). It's firmer, but still fairly chewy, recommended for moderate chewers
    • XXT / Very Firm - This is the toughest level, which we call XXT ("Xtra Xtra Tough"). It still has some “chewability” to it, but it’s fairly pretty firm (although not as firm/tough as our solid chews).

    Ark Bite Chew - Hollow Features:

    • BPA, phthalates, lead and PVC free
    • Colours: Red, Lime Green and Blue (each sold separately)
    • Toughness levels: Standard, XT and XTT  (each sold separately)
    • TPE (thermo-plastic elastomer) material
    • 2 diameters 1.27cm and 0.95cm
    • 12.7cm approx

    Note: if you are looking for a long lasting chew tool for avid chewing, we recommend solid chews over hollow chews. Check out the tetra bite.

Amazing quality!

We purchased the Harkla sensory swing for my daughter. It’s such wonderful quality. The material is so soft and it was easy to install. Thanks Starfish for another great product. All the kids love this one.

Just what we needed then and now!

Having been a teacher, I always browsed and purchased educational products from the previous shop in Kiama.

Now, as a grandparent I continue to love to visit your expanded business. I am keen to view new toys or regulation products to support my grandchildren’s needs. I have always found your staff knowledgeable,...

I love using your products with my NDIS client. I especially find the Coko Alphabet Bricks easy to use and so helpful in promoting literacy learning skills with my client. They also double up as a great playtime activity with my 7 year old granddaughter where we see how many words we can make out of a select few...

Sending a big thank you to the lovely team at Starfish store. I’m located in Melbourne and the lady I spoke to on the phone was more then happy to give her advice regarding noise canceling ear muffs. My 2 year old son, who has sensory issues, couldn’t be more happier! They have given him such comfort in overwhelming...

My daughter is a sensory seeker and seeks oral feedback and stimulation, we’ve purchased the Ark Z Vibe Grabber and instantly my daughter was getting the input she was seeking. The staff at Starfish are extremely helpful and the prompt service and delivery is always appreciated.

We purchased the Lycra swing from Starfish. It’s great quality (thick Lycra), stretchy yet firm, and has enough material for the kids to wrap around themselves. It also takes a lot of weight so can be used for years to come. Definitely great value for money.

My 5 year old nonverbal ASD was overstimulated, we tried our usual deep pressure cuddles and reassurance however it wasn't working. We decided to give the turtle a go, and he loves it he listened to the waves and quickly calmed to the blue wave over our roof within a minute. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I write this...

Absolutely love the Whoozit Water Mat. We got it today and Liam, who doesn’t normally like water, played with it for over half an hour with a huge smile.

We played with the Connetix tiles all afternoon with no TV on (big plus in our house). The best part about it was, I am not the best at actively playing with her and I actually played with her for a decent hour or two because I find them so fascinating! Win win!

I received my LCD writing tablet and I am thrilled. So far it’s been invaluable next to my computer to write things down if needed without wasting or looking for paper. I will take it in my bag wherever I go! Thanks so much Starfish!
