Chewy Tubes Ps and Qs Review & Giveaway

"Chewy Tubes are innovative oral motor tools designed to provide a resilient, non-food, chewable surface for practicing biting and chewing skills" 
At church a few months ago, we saw a little boy in front of us with what appeared to be an amazing teether. He was very content to hold it, gnaw on it, and fiddle with it. It was shaped like a d, or a p--we weren't for sure. On our way home, my husband and I discussed how we needed to find one of those for G--as she was a teething mess and we knew she'd love it. Weeks went by, teething picked up even more, and her desire to gnaw on long chewy things increased. One day, sitting in front of the bathroom mirror, I handed her comb to her. She stuck the chewy end into her mouth and was really excited to gnaw on it. Probably wasn't the best thing for her to have.

Finally, we decided we needed that p or d thingy. Enter Speech Pathology Associates' Chewy Tubes. Thank you Google! I found their website and they were more than willing to sponsor a review and giveaway.
What we saw in church is actually a 'chewy p' and is part of Chewy Tubes' Ps and Qs Oral Exercisers. Oral Exercisers for G, right now, might as well be the same thing as teethers. It helps G practice her biting skills, while fulfilling her desire to gnaw on anything. She loved the Ps and Qs as soon as I washed and handed them to her. She can easily grab and chew on them both. The P is great for any teething baby/toddler, as the stem can reach back to the molar area or get bit by the front teeth/gums--the loop can also hit the canines' area at once. I like the P because it helps G develop her fine motor skills, when she practices picking it up by the stem. The Q is her current favorite, as she can gnaw on the stub and hold onto the ring very easily. The orange color is also great, so that she (and we parents) can find it easily amongst other toys. We've had them for a few weeks and she still gets excited when presented with her chewy Q or chewy P. As she gets older, the oral exercisers will continue to develop her jaw functions.

I received one of everything above to try with G. Besides the Ps and Qs, we've tried the yellow chewy tube, as it is the thinnest in diameter. I'm saving the thicker ones to try in a few months. She LOVES the yellow chewy tube. It's awesome because she can hold onto it in many different positions and grab it with both hands. She's still trying to figure it out, and loves chewing on it. The yellow chewy tube gets "g bonus points" for captivating her attention span for more than 5 minutes at one sitting!
