Chewelry- A Must Have~Interview With Bumples Family First

Today I am giving you the link to connect to Bumples Family First, a cross-promotional Blog for Bumples Interactive Magazine. It is about their interview with 35 year old mother of three and principal owner of Kid Companions, Pierrette d'Entremont. This kid-friendly "Chewelry" has an unique use. Read more...The interview covers the following aspects, but in a lot more detail,  of  the long, four year journey:
Tell us a bit about yourself.
I attended The University of Ottawa in the Health Sciences, Human Kinetics program. Also I am a jewellery designer and Accredited Jewelry Professional.

How did you come up with the “chewelry” idea?
... struck me that my 3 year old could chew and fidget discreetly while my nursing infant could tug and teeth to her hearts’ content...

Explain the Chewelry and the benefits of it and why Autistic children need it.
...Finally, we had a solution….a durable, colorful, non-toxic chewy pendant that was safe …something that could help any child be him/herself, anytime, anywhere. We called it the HeartString Kid Companion...
...Special Need children, often those with ASD,  use Kid Companions as an oral- motor tool... As a chewable accessory, the tool addresses the issues of inappropiate biting and chewing and helps those with Sensory Processing Disorder.

Children with ADHD are unable to inhibit the impulse to move around...and Kid Companions with its textures and the worry stone dip in the heart shape are great fidgets...

Are Kid Companions fashionable?
...chewable and tuggable while still being “cool” enough to blend in. The heart and circle shapes and lanyards in their choices of colors worn as a necklace or clipped to clothing are discreet but yet fashionable...

For what ages do you make Kid Companions Chewelry?
...appropriate for all ages 3 years and up.

How can parents be sure they are safe?
...give parents peace of mind. Since our products are developed for infant use, we wanted FDA approved, North American sourced/made and socially responsible materials. THAT was a tall order, but we did it! We have followed ASTM standards...
Anything else you would like to add?
Let’s chew and fidget safely and fashionably!

What has been your experience with such Special Needs tools as chewies, fidgets...?
