The Flip Bangle is ever popular due to its stimability AND its secret communication powers.

 The design for this came from the requirement to make a product that looked quite cool and subtle. We drew inspiration from charity bands, they go unnoticed everywhere. They blend in. Charity bands would not withstand the level of chewing we see. The other benefit of a charity band is they are great to fidget with. You can squish them and play with them, making them by accident quite a nice stim aid in their own right. But they lack the strength required for our community. 

The other design element Jenny wanted to incorporate was it could have a dual purpose, by making it different colours on each side, it could act as a ‘secret code’ to those around you. Allowing the wearer to communicate when they needed space without the awkward conversation or inability to communicate if beginning to feel overwhelmed.

This bangle was so popular we have it available in bright colours for children, subtler tones for adults

This concept is now adored by parents, partners, educators and professionals and makes this product an absolutely essential item in the Chewigem originals range.

  • Soft and squishy
  • Satisfying flip ability
  • Colours can be used to communicate mood
  • Just agree with those around you what each colour means
  • Lots of spring making it a satisfying chew
  • Children’s standard flip bangles come as two in a pack

Emotichew Option:  which basically has green on one side and red on the other side with the wording ‘ Talk to me’ or ‘leave me be’. You can find this here

When facing sensory overload it can be a challenge to explain how you feel. This bangle available in both child and adult size removes that barrier. Similar to traffic lights it sends a simple visual message that lets those around you know when you wish to be left alone or are open to communication and contact. Allowing you to control your interactions, explain your emotions and send a message without having to verbally communicate.

  • Squishy and flexible 
  • Can flip over to change the colour
  • The flip feature also a great fidget feature
  • Great for those who struggle with communication
  • Suitable for School, home or work

Teachers report this is a very useful tool, allowing them to see at a glance how a pupil is managing and adjust their behaviour accordingly.

“The emotichew is great for people who struggle with communicating their feelings but also is useful for other people to know how you are feeling.”

If you don’t like red and green then our other range of child and adult flip bangles can work in exactly the same way, you just need to decide which colour means and let those around you know.

Cord TypeNo cord attached

Once damaged, Chewigem should be discarded and replaced.

As a general guide, refer to the lifespan tables for an indication of longevity. 

Check regularly for damage.

  • All products have been widely tested and you can be confident they are lead, latex, PVC, and phthalate-free.
  • In children and any person with a learning disability, that does not understand risks, it is vital all products should be used with supervision and checked regularly for damage.
  • As soon as wear and tear shows, the product should be discarded. This means a tear or puncture that could cause a larger section to break off.

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. 

For further information please refer to our Caring for your Chewigem guide which gives lots of information on looking after your Chewigem and prolonging its life.
