The Gumimoji’s prove to be a fun, multifunctional aid that can be used to chew, fiddle, and communicate.
With a desire to create products to meet the needs or the full range of neurodiversity we attract we wanted to expand our at-home, handheld range. We know many people of all ages can struggle with understanding emotions, facial expressions, and communication. This product is an alternative to flashcards that can get battered and destroyed quite easily. These can withstand chewing, fidgeting and are portable. Adored by teachers, parents, and professionals.

How to care for a Chewigem without a cord (e.g. Fidgets, handhelds & bangles)
You can wash these using any of the below options:
- Hot soapy water
- Top rack of a dishwasher
- Steam steriliser
- Microwave steriliser
- Sterilising solution.
Chewigem’s with a cord (e.g. pendants & necklaces)
With the cord on you can wash your Chewigem’s:
- Hot soapy water
- Washing machine on a low heat
with the cord removed:
By removing the cord the silicone section can be washed in the same way as a cordless product above.
The clasp on the cords is plastic and cannot cope with high heat and risks melting which is why we suggest the cord be removed.
This is simple, snap the breakaway clasp apart, pull the clasp back down the cord to reveal the knot, untie the knot and slide the clasp off this should allow you to take the cord off the pendant. Once washed, reverse the process, reattach the cord, slide the clasp down onto the cord, tie a knot at the end and slide the clasp back up over the knot.
