Chewigem - Chewable Pencil Topper Chew - 4 pack
So many pencil toppers are heavy and can affect writing adversely, these covers are so lightweight you won’t even know they are there.
We knew we wanted to provide pencil ‘toppers’, chewing pencils and pens is such a common challenge in our community, but having consulted with occupational therapists and specialists we spotted a gap in the market. By their very nature pencil toppers add weight to the pencil. If they are going to be chewed then how thick they are becoming important, but not at the cost of causing writing fatigue or adversely affecting writing skills due to the extra weight. Some benefit from that extra weight, but many find it prohibitive.
Our pencil covers are not the strongest from a chewing perspective, but they do protect the teeth and the ingestion of led and wood splinters by acting as a cover over the pen or pencil

But the functionality does not stop just at them being pencil covers, our ever-inventive community has used them to cover headphone wires, to ping, flap, and twist as a fidget aid, and even use the open over as a straw.
