Kid Companions- Chewelry: Mar 16, 2010

Introduction to Kid Companions by Mom and designer

There are wonderfully fun, bright and colorful fidget toys and chewables out there. However, if you are the parent or caregiver of a growing youth, teen or adult with special needs, those common features can be a problem. In fact, traditional fidget toys and chewable toys can be a source of stress on some special needs individuals that require them.


The Kid Companions Chewelry line was designed by a mom after she realized that her growing daughter felt embarrassed and would hide her chewable fidget while at school. The product line is designed to be wearable, fashionable and chewable. It is also safe, non-toxic and can be personalized on the company's newly launched website.

Pierrette d'Entremont, owner and designer, explains her feelings, echoing those of many parents of youth with special needs.
"As a mother, I want nothing more than to see my children happy. Part of having a happy special needs youth is having one that functions well at school, at play and especially, as best she can, with her peers. With time, needing to belong to her peer group was becoming more important. It wasn't fair, or very effective, that something that should help her was making her feel embarrassed."

So it was, armed with the need, the research and the will, that the Kid's Companion was born. A truly safe, non-toxic and effective chewable fidget for the growing special needs child.

The Kid's Companion Chewelry is available at www.chewelry.ca and at select occupational therapy and special needs stores. It is available in Heart and Circle shapes and in 6 colors. It is proudly made in Canada and sourced in North America by Pida IMP Ltd.
