Fun, Playful Tool for Oral Motor Therapy
Who can resist these cute animal faces? The friendly dog, cat and mouse will entice even the most reluctant children to participate in therapy. Each has multiple textures and different shapes to provide oral stimulation to both the mouth and face. Use for feeding therapy, play therapy, and imaginative exercises. Simply screw onto your Z-Vibe and twist to provide gentle vibration and extra sensory input.

The back of each animal has a bite block of a different thickness to work on jaw grading and stability. For children who prefer a firmer texture, Hard Animal Tips Set is also available. Or, purchase the Z-Vibe Animal Travel Kit, which includes 2 hard tips and 1 soft tip. Use with adult supervision. This item is not returnable.
Ideas for Use
Use the cat as a “dipper spoon” to decrease texture aversion and food anxiety. Use the mouse and dog ears as spoons. One ear is smooth, and the other ear has gentle bumps for added tactile input and stability to the tongue. Use the bumpy one to help introduce texture to puréed foods and to encourage the transition from puréed to textured/regular food.
